What's New in BuildingReports & ScanSeries - May 2020 Updates

BuildingReports is pleased to announce several updates that went live this week, many of which were requested by our network of over 900 Service Members. Unlike a full ScanSeries release, the updates reflected below to the mobile application will take effect once a building has been downloaded to a mobile device. These do not require an update to a new version via your service provider's app store.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The ScanSeries update includes the addition of Disinfected Surface Device Types for helping organizations track and record sanitization efforts as part of COVID-19, and beyond.


Website Update

Get Reports page - A new default Inspection Identifier column has been added, which differs from the preexisting Building Identifier column. The Inspection Identifier can be removed if desired, edited, or added back once removed by accessing the Overview Tab on each inspection report. The purpose of this column, based on a member request, was to allow for the addition of Work Order numbers for tracking purposes. However, this 250-character field can be utilized for any desired purpose.
