Today, we’ll take a look at one of the most popular uses for AppSheet. Businesses of all types live and die by the soundness of their inspection processes. It comes as no surprise that our users create applications to manage these mission-critical tasks.
It’s time to move on from tracking your inspections on a spreadsheet or—gasp!—with pen and paper. This post looks at how you can use AppSheet to create an inspections app from data stored in Google Sheets that will work on mobile, tablet, and your computer.
Here are the basics of the inspection app we’ll build today: it automates data capture (machine ID, images, and signature etc), pre-fills form fields, and sends notifications through email and Slack. The app is NFC-enabled and includes a bar code scanner, so inspectors won’t have to manually enter machine IDs.
You can check out a pre-built inspection app by clicking on the button below. Keep reading to learn the major steps to building the app so that you can customize it for your own unique processes. Finally, take a moment to watch the recordings of a webinar for an even deeper-dive into the creation of this app.
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.
