10/10/22: What's new in CommunityCore & InspectorConnect?
Every two weeks, we release improvements to our systems and highlight what is new for you. The latest changes were deployed over the weekend. You don't need to do anything to see these updates in CommunityCore. To take advantage of the new feature in InspectorConnect 3.0, please make sure you have the latest version of the app installed.
TL;DR (“Too Long; Didn’t Read”)
With these updates, now you can:
- Delete a code enforcement violation
- Require more fields, like applicant email, be filled out on a permit application before it can be submitted or accepted
And in InspectorConnect, now you can:
Delete a code enforcement violation
Now, in CommunityCore only (this option is not available in InspectorConnect), if a violation has been entered within the last 72 hours, you can delete the violation.
Designate more required permit fields for a jurisdiction
Good news! We have heard quite often that you would like to be able to require the applicant's email address be filled out on a permit application - and now that is possible! You can also decide if any of these fields below should be required on internal (permit applications entered by a permit tech) or external (permit applications entered by a contractor or community member) applications:
- Applicant phone
- Owner name
- Owner address
- Owner email
- Owner primary phone
- Description of work
- Applicant email
Please keep in mind: If you designate any of these fields as required for your applicants to fill out before submitting an application, it will be required on all permit types for the jurisdiction.
Please make sure you have the latest version of InspectorConnect 3.0 to take advantage of these new features. Thanks!
For building inspections
View documents while resulting an inspection
In this latest release of InspectorConnect, building inspectors can view permit documents without having to navigate away from the task details or resulting screens. Now, from the task details or resulting screen, you can open a permit document in a new browser tab and then use the app switcher to quickly go back to InspectorConnect after viewing the document.
