Sharing Settings in Property Inspection BOSS

Property Inspection BOSS Premium customers can now share settings amongst your team.


To take advantage of these new features, we require your iPad to be running Property Inspection BOSS v1.3.0 and iOS 8.1 or later and have a strong WIFI connection. Follow this helpful guide if you are not running the latest.


Why Use Share Settings?

  • Sharing Settings in Property Inspection BOSS is ideal for larger offices where you have finished the Property Inspection BOSS Premium trial, setup your Inspection Areas/Sub Inspection Areas, Property Profiles and Shorthand Words and now need to install those same Settings on other devices in your office as part of your Property Inspection BOSS Premium subscription, or
  • You have contacted support and wish to start using Property Inspection BOSS in Commercial Inspection mode or wish to revert back to Residential Inspection mode, or
  • You have been working with the Property Inspection BOSS Support team on preparing a new custom developed Settings File and need to download the Settings onto all your devices in your office.

Please note that as part of the process of Sharing Settings you might be prompted to Restore All or  Merge. A Restore All should only be performed on new iPads or those wanting to start afresh with complete new Settings and no Inspections. Using Restore Allwill remove all existing Settings and Inspections from your iPad so please be careful in using this.


STEP 1: Setup your Property Inspection BOSS Settings and Upload

  • If you want to share Settings amongst your the property managers in the office, consult them and work out which Inspection Areas/Sub Inspection Areas, Property Profiles and Shorthand Words you would like to be shared and have consistency throughout your office.
  • Nominate one device and enter the Inspection Areas/Sub Inspection Areas, Property Profiles and Shorthand Words in Property Inspection BOSS Settings.
  • Once that is done select Settings → Property Inspection BOSS Admin →  Share Settings  (see screenshot below)



  • Now select Upload Settings (see screenshot below)



  • That's it. Your Property Inspection BOSS Settings are now available to be downloaded onto other iPads in your office.


STEP 2: Download Settings

  • Select Settings → Property Inspection BOSS Admin →  Share Settings  (as discussed in Step 1)
  • Now select Download and Setup Settings
  • A list of Settings show now be displayed.
    • If a property manager from your office (or yourself) have just performed Step 1 on another device, then a Setting entry/file show be listed showing the Device and Property Manager/User of the user who uploaded that Settings File. Select that File (so it is ticked) and tap Continue.
    • If you have previously contacted Property Inspection BOSS Support and have had a Settings File (either Residential or Commercial) prepared for your office, select the file/entry titled Remote Setup (so it is ticked) and tap Continue.
  • You are now prompted to Restore All or  Merge the Settings from the Settings File/Device just selected with those on the iPad you are now using. A Restore All should only be performed on new iPads or those wanting to start afresh with complete new Settings and no Inspections. Using Restore Allwill remove all existing Settings  and Inspections from your iPad so please be careful in using this. Merge Settings is safer as it will attempt to merge your existing Settings with those Settings just selected.
  • That's it. Your new Property Inspection BOSS Settings show now be available to use in Property Inspection BOSS!
