11/21/22: 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:
- Send a push notification to a building inspector when scheduling, rescheduling, or canceling an inspection
- Receive a push notification to your iPhone or iPad when a change is made to your schedule
- Tell if an inspection is past due on the scheduled tasks screen
In Plan Reviews
Send inspection notifications to inspector's iPhone/iPad
Inspectors must have the latest version of InspectorConnect on their iPhones or iPads to receive push notifications.
When scheduling or rescheduling an inspection, you can now choose to send a push notification to inspectors so they are aware of the changes to their schedule. See how this works in InspectorConnect.
Update notification banner
On occasion, we need to push out an update to CommunityCore, and to make the update easier on you, you will now be notified with a banner message like this:
Plans examiner capacity
In this update, when assigning a review to a plans examiner (in permits and projects), you will see the number of reviews currently assigned to them as well as the number of overdue plan reviews.
If there is no capacity line below the plan reviewer's name, this individual has no current assignments. Not all reviewers will show estimated hours available.
Project documents in a permit
When you have permits linked to a project, you will now be able to see any project documents within the permit, like this:
New push notifications
For building inspections
In this update, we added the ability for building inspectors to receive notifications on their iPad or iPhones when a change is made to their schedule. Permit techs or individuals scheduling, rescheduling, or canceling an inspection can choose to send a push notification to the inspector's device to notify them of a change of schedule.
Please make sure you have the latest version of InspectorConnect, otherwise, you won't receive these new notifications. Thanks!

Past due inspections
For building inspections
In this update, it's easier to see which inspection stops (tasks) are past due from the scheduled tasks screen or the task details screen. Past-due stops will be indicated in red.
