With the Lot Walk feature, technicians can get customer approval for multiple inspections in an efficient manner. It is especially useful for technicians that need to get a quick approval for all vehicles estimated at customer’s site during the initial walk.
Important! Lot walk inspections must be created for a wholesale customer, saved as final inspections with the 'New' status, and no work order must be created from such inspections.
To set up the Lot Walk feature
In the Back Office application, on the Company tab, click Inspection Types, and then click Edit next to inspection types that will be used for creating lot walk inspections.
In the Inspection Type dialog box, select the Group Approval check box, and click OK.
Customers can approve the Lot Walk inspections by:
