We host webinars every Thursday and in the last two episodes, we built an inspection app to help perform inspections more efficiently on-the-fly. Yes, you got it right—we built out the entire app during the webinars! Our DIY inspection app was very well-received, so much so that I'd like to share how we built it with all of our readers.
So, even if you still use Excel, Google Sheets, or paper forms to perform equipment inspections or you've never built a mobile app before, take a few minutes to check out how we built this app. You just might discover that you, too, can be an app creator! My post provides some context on how we built out the app—when you have some time, I encourage you to watch the webinar recordings (links to both can be found at the end of this post).
Before we get started, here's what you need to know about this inventory app: it automates data capture (machine ID, images, and signature etc), pre-fills form fields, and sends notifications through email and Slack. It is also bar code and NFC-enabled so inspectors don't have to manually enter Machine IDs. Now, you can use the inspection app as is by clicking on the button below. That being said, it's always good to know the major steps that went in to building out the app—that way you can easily customize it to meet your needs!
Automatically send an email after a new audit is complete. Push Slack notifications when a machine doesn't pass an audit. In your email, you can include everything or just a summary of an audit.
