  4. Add new items – Within an existing category, you can manually add items one at a time.

NOTE: Deleting or editing the name of a line item or category is NOT permitted after the sheet is used 20 times. This is to preserve data integrity. Locked sheets can be duplicated and archived. The new copy is able to be edited. (See video below)

Line Item Options

3.0 Line Item Toggles-min

Tip: Use requirements sparingly. If you are new to digital inspections, too many requirements make a sheet difficult to complete. Adding too many requirements often leads to worse results, not better.

Many line preferences can be edited at any time.

  1. Recommendations – This is where you customize selection lists for recommended repairs. (See Below)
  2. Allow Video – This enables videos (.mp4) to be recorded or uploaded to this line item.

  4. Add Sub Statuses at the Line item level (You can do this at the category level as well.)

  6. Image Required – For techs to sign off – An image MUST be taken on each inspection for this item.
  7. Video Required – For techs to sign off – A Video MUST be attached on each inspection for this item.


Add Recommendations to Line Items

4.0 Recommendations-min

Tip: It’s a good idea to put all your notes in Global first. You can have them in multiple categories with no issue.

To reduce the need for typing common recommendations, pre-set selectable options for your technicians.

  1. Click the “R” next to any line item.
  2. Choose if you want the recommendation to be for any status (global) or only appear for Green/Yellow/Red.
  3. Type the recommendation here.
  4. Click Add! Your tech can begin using these recommendations immediately.

Tip: You can modify recommendations on locked sheets. Edits to these do NOT affect notes saved on any sheets. You can also map these recommendations to your findings in DVI Note Setup.

Sub Statuses

Sub Status Management

5.0 SubStatus-min
6.0 Statusts in action-min

You can go beyond the basic symbols for green/yellow/red and create your own sub-statuses.

i.e. add NA as an option under green items to indicate a line item is non-applicable to a particular vehicle. or OK to indicate “Checked and OK!”

  • Click the bullet icon in the category or line item.
  • Select the status you’d like to add a sub-status to.
  • Enter a two-letter abbreviation (this will appear on the shop view of the DVI ONLY.
  • Enter a note, if desired. (These notes will append to any other saved notes.)

Tip: Build your sub-statuses to compliment your exisiting DVI notes. The client will only see that the item is Green/Yellow/Red, they do not see additional details unless you include a note. This feature is aimed at speeding up technicians.
