Snap photos and enter details room-by-room in TOTAL for Mobile
Written by Rebecca Roden on July 3, 2018
Are you an appraiser who relies on paper to get through each inspection? If so, you're probably spending too much time re-typing your work at the end of the day. We've designed our free mobile app to keep all your work in one place — through every step of your inspection, room-by-room. On your next assignment, check out the Rooms tab in TOTAL for Mobile. You won't see this feature in our desktop software — it's designed specifically to improve your workflow in the field!
With the Rooms tab, you can enter details room-by-room as you go through your inspection. Snap photos, take speech-to-text notes, and enter features & conditions as you walk through each room of the property! Bonus: If you like to sketch as you go, you don't have to stop drawing to keep track of room edits — we let you do both at once. Watch the video below to see how it works [1:11]:
When you sync your report back to TOTAL, all of the room data you collected is available instantly. View it in two ways:
- From the Notes PowerView in TOTAL, click the Mobile Notes tab and double-click on the file called FieldData to view each piece of information you entered in a comprehensive document — rooms included. (If you took separate notes in the app, those are shown in the Mobile Notes tab, too.)
- From the Forms PowerView or the Side-by-Side PowerView, check out the Above Grade Room Count fields. The app updates your room counts automatically!
