Article Summary

While it's better to always make sure the correct type has been selected before accepting a permit application, we are now able to change the permit type after it has been accepted, it's now possible to change the permit type.

What won't change in the permit

Please keep in mind that when the permit type is changed after an application has been accepted (and a permit number has been assigned), there are a few things about the permit that will not be changed:

  • The inspection list will not change. You can manually update the inspection list or can add a new inspection step to the workflow.
  • The recommended fees will not change to match the new permit type. However, you can still assess any fee in your list of fees. 🙂

How to Change the Permit Type

  • Click the dropdown in the In Progress button, then select Change Permit Type
