When performing an action plan, certain records such as inspections, documents, photos, and more, may be requested upon completion of an item. This tutorial provides instructions for how to add the requested records to the item in the action plan.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Standard' level permissions or higher on the project's Action Plans tool.
    • 'Read Only' level permissions or higher on the Action Plans tool with the 'Add Records' granular permission enabled.
  • Limitations:
    • Mobile users cannot currently see if Observations or Meetings are requested as records.
    • To add requested records, you must have permissions to view the item(s) in the respective tool(s).


  1. Navigate to the project's Action Plans tool.
  2. Click View next to the action plan with items you want to add records to.
    Note: If the 'View' button is not clickable, the action plan is in 'Edit' mode and can only be accessed by users with 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Action Plans tool.
