Using Note Templates

Your org may have some custom note templates set up for you to use for common items such as source of loss, structural damage, pre-existing damage, etc. These templates are pre-filled with certain information to make your entry as fast and easy as possible and ensure critical info is not left out.

  3. Tap Preview to see the full note template (use the side arrows to browse the other templates).
  4. Tap Use when you find the template you want to use for your note.
  5. Fill out the note - you can add or remove information to the pre-filled text as needed.
