4 ways to get more value from your punch list reports

Blog: January 5, 2021

At first glance, a punch list is simply a document with outstanding items, but there are ways to get more out of an inspection report. Using a punch list app like FinishLine improves collaboration, reduce follow-up, saves time creating reports, and provides access to meaningful project insights.

Read on to see the 4 specific ways to get more value from your punch list reports.

Distribute Reports in several formats

Not everyone wants to receive punch list reports in the same way and being able to meet that expectation with flexible reporting options improves collaboration. Some project stakeholders may want reports via email, view their punch list items via an app, or have access to a hard copy report.

Track and view which Reports were sent

Ever wonder if a subcontractor received the inspection report you sent them? Being able to track and view which reports were sent eliminates unnecessary follow-ups and can help your case should any litigation arise down the line. With FinishLine you can quickly access reports based on a particular email address or date range.

Schedule automatic Reports

Setup and schedule your reports to be sent and shared automatically (FinishLine Pro) with project stakeholders, all based on your preferences. You can choose when reports are sent based on dates (daily, weekly, monthly, etc.) and time of day intervals. This feature removes the guesswork and saves time back at the office or job trailer after your inspections.

Export Reports to Excel

Learn more about punch items in your projects by exporting inspection reports into Excel for further analysis. Access to flexible data will help you track reoccurring issues and uncover inefficiencies with a specific trade or punch list item type.
