The Property Scan screen starts in a scan mode.  Since no UConn Properties are bar coded, typing the building identifier or name in the search box is the quickest way to find data on an individual property.

As a property name or identifier is typed into the search box a blue Search button shows in the keyboard area.  When all or part of the property name is in the search box, click the Search Button to get a list of properties.



The third option on the bottom menu is Inspection.  A list of each inspection type with the number of outstanding inspections displays when this option is selected.

To narrow inspections by Property, type the building name into the search box at the top of the screen and click the Search Button to narrow the list of inspections to those in the Property.


The inspections that are available to execute will show in the Inspections list.  Clicking the blue icon to the left fo the Inspection number , ,
