The following workflow enhancements will go live in production on Tuesday, September 3rd:
The ePermitting Program is working with an CityGovApps to create our own Oregon Inspector App. Our goal is to create an alternative to the current Accela Inspector App to allow for Oregon customization, faster bug fixes, and better support. The Accela app will still be available, but you will also have the choice to use the Oregon Inspector App. The Oregon Inspector App is similar in functionality to the Accela Inspector App, so the learning curve should not be too great. We are aiming to have the Oregon Inspector App available to download in early Fall 2019. The app will only be available for iOS devices at this time. There is a new feature that we are especially excited about: with the new app, an inspector can take pictures at the job site and add comments. Then the pictures can be added to the Result Report and emailed directly to the customer.
When you need to indicate that a building permit application is Denied (when there is no way to make the project “issuable”), ePermitting suggests using the task status of Withdrawn. Make sure to include in the comments that it was Denied along with the reason for the denial. Additionally, you could manually update the overall record status to Denied.
We announced in the last ePermitting Newsletter that we are working on a project to standardize the financial batch export that many of our agencies receive on a daily basis. We are continuing our progress but the project timeline has been extended due to some technical limitations that we are trying to overcome. We will provide another update with go-live dates and new Q & A session dates as soon as those are solidified.
Please be aware that this content is relevant at the time it is published, but as time goes on may become out-of-date. We will do our best to keep the content alive and relevant.
