A form template can be set up to avoid the repetitive task of adding BMPs/Control Measures or certain areas that you inspect. Setting up the template will allow you to choose your frequency setting for the inspection, as well as, add any BMPs/Control Measures and areas that you will be inspecting for that inspection moving forward.
To set up your inspection form template, for this example we will set up the routine inspection form, click on the desired subsection (Stormwater: Routine Inspections) under the Records section of the Mapistry main page. The desired subsection box should change to a darker gray color. Then click on the gear on the upper, right-hand corner of the Records section.
Then click on Create or Edit Template to set up or modify an existing form template.
Click on the form section from the form outline you would like to edit. For our purposes, we will be selecting Best Management Practices) you can add a new Control Measure by selecting the plus sign next to the form section. To delete an existing inspection item, click on the trash cans next to this item.
If you click on the plus sign, it will automatically direct you to a blank inspection item. Since BMPs are a text field, you may type in any BMP name. If we were adding an Industrial Process and Storage Area item, the list of possible items would appear as a droplist of existing items from your site map.

After you are done with all of your edits, make sure to click Save.
When you start a new inspection, the added BMP will be automatically populated into your inspection form.
Reminder: You still need to view and click done for each Control Measure during the inspection process.
