Sync Tap Inspect With Your Google Calendar

Keeping your appointments straight and knowing when you are free gets tough for a home inspector. It is easy to double book a job or schedule a job when you have another commitment. Even worse is having to call a possible client back because you do not immediately know when you are available.

An online calendar is the easiest way to avoid those problems. They make keeping track of your availability and scheduled jobs a breeze. You can even turn on alerts to remind you of upcoming events.

Free services like Google Calendar allow you to access your calendar from multiple devices like an iPhone, a tablet, and any web browser. Google Calendar is also supported by all the other major calendars like Outlook, Apple iCloud Calendar, and dozens of other services and platforms. Including Tap Inspect.

Setup the Integration

Point your web browser to https://app.tapinspect.com/integrations (login with your email and password if needed) and click on Add Google Calendar to activate it for your account. From there it is as simple as following the prompts.

Get more details on setting up the integration from our help center.

Using the Integration

Each new job you add in Tap Inspect will be pushed to your calendar as a new event. By tapping on the the event on your calendar you can see the details of the job. There also a link that takes you to the job details on your web account.

Using the ISN Repair Request List with Tap Inspect

Repair Request List Tool
The ISN Repair Request List (RRL) tool lets your agents build a repair request without having to copy and paste from the report PDF into another document.

It uses your Tap Inspect Report Summary to build a list of the biggest issues found during the home inspection. The agent can then choose which items to add to the repair request and how to request the repair is done.

The Repair Request List tool is part of the ISN Real Estate Dashboard that is provided to every ISN user. Tap Inspect is one of the only 3rd party reporting system that has the ability to utilize the RRL.

If you are looking for ways to add more value to your home inspections or looking for a way to stand out this article is for you. We will go over how to set up the RRL and how to use the Tap Inspect integration.

Setting up the Integration

Once you have set up your Tap Inspect <> ISN integration is there is nothing left to do from the Tap Inspect side. There are a few steps that may need to be done in your ISN. Take a look at the ISN Repair Request List help document for some links to help you along.

Using the Integration

The Repair Request List tool is just another part of the Tap Inspect <> ISN Integration. There is nothing else you need to do to use it. Just publish your report to ISN and the Report Summary data will be there.

If you make any changes to a report its no problem. Just re-publish the report and make sure you send it to ISN again. The Report Summary data will be updated for you.

There are a few big things to remember while using the tool. Only reports going forward will have the Repair Request List available. If you published reports to ISN before we added this to our ISN integration they may not have the Report Summary data. Just republish any old reports and it will get generated.

The other thing to remember is that agents will not be able to use the Repair Request List tool until the order has been COMPLETED. It also looks like that if you have turned on the the PAID or SIGNED requirements to view a report the agent will also not be able to use the Repair Request List.

Cheré Bossard, the Lead Trainer from ISN joined me for a webinar where we talked about ISN and the Repair Request List. I really enjoyed the conversation and think there are lots of great ideas.

Using the Inspection Support Network with Tap Inspect

When you operate an inspection business, you know that time is money. Tap Inspect was designed to save as much time as possible while you’re at the job site, but all of the effort associated with scheduling and coordinating inspections can also be very time-consuming. With that in mind, we are thrilled to announce that Tap Inspect now integrates directly with the Inspection Support Network.

What is the Inspection Support Network?

ISN specializes in handling every aspect of your inspection business, from scheduling and agreements to invoicing and billing. Their service provides a great solution to reducing the overhead associated with coordinating with your customers.

How does it work?

Take a look at our detailed guide for information on how to get started.

Once you have connected your ISN account to Tap Inspect, scheduling an inspection at ISN will automatically create a report in Tap Inspect with the property address, client, agent, and other information already filled out for you. All you need to do is tell us which template to use for each ISN order type and our system will do the rest.



Tap Inspect can even populate items in the general section of your report with information that was entered at ISN, such as approximate age, square footage, etc.



If you prefer, we can also push published report PDFs back to ISN’s system so that you can take advantage of their report delivery features. ISN will appear as a recipient when you publish a report, alongside the client and agents.



We have worked hard to make the experience as seamless as possible, and we would love to hear your feedback.
