Inspections Overview

This view lets you create and edit inspections. The highlighted number indicates the iWorkbook version you are currently using.


Status of an Inspection

In the inspection view, tasks and inspections can have two states:

In ProgressThe inspection isn't finished yet or isn't marked as completed by the user
CompletedThis iWorkbook has been locked by the user – it cannot be modified until this state is undone

Inspection Progress

There is a progress circle at the right of the iWorkbook entry that indicates the current status or progress of the inspection.

Naming an inspection

After selecting an iWorkbook to work with, a dialogue box will appear. There, you can choose a specific name for the inspection. If you click OK without entering a new name, a default name will be used instead.
