When I set-up to do a new inspection, I'll either refer to the mls data or ask the buyer for further information, like: Size, Age, Suites, Garage, Crawlspace, Heating Sys, etc... not only to help me price my inspection quote but also to determine which 'report fill' to apply to my template. That has worked ok for the most part but is still quite inefficient as it's difficult to have a single report fill cover so many variables.
As an option to 'report fills' I would prefer to see a self-building report fill based on my ability to select from multiple options per each section heading, that I could name or organize to suit. For example, if the report fill box would open up with 'Exterior Cladding' with drop-down menus to differentiate between (rain-screen, face-seal, EFIS etc) - Then for Roof, drop-downs could be (Gable, Hip, Low Slope, Flat) - For Roof Covering (Asphalt Shingles, Torch-on, Concrete Tile, Tar /Gravel, etc) - For Heating (Forced Air, Elec Baseboards, In-Floor Hydronic, etc). etc., etc
Having the ability to quickly choose & pick through some of the various specifics, that could automatically populate 75 % of the report would be a major time saver. I asked for this a couple of times verbally with tech-support and was told it would be added to the list of hopeful improvements, but then, 99.9 % of my requests over the last 12 yrs have fallen into a large black hole, never to be heard about again :(
