How to conduct the code enforcement inspection assigned to you

Code Enforcement Inspectors will have their assigned inspection in their My today view. All planned inspections appear in the Scheduled Events section. After completing the field inspection, Cloudpermit automatically generates a downloadable inspection report PDF that is saved in the selected inspection's All Visits section.

This tutorial shows how to conduct code enforcement inspections assigned to you.
