I'm trying to start an inspection but my app is 'locked', why can't I start the inspection?

Inspections can't be started from templates, so this could be your roadblock! You'll know if you're in a template if the title bar at the top of the app is blue. If blue is what you see, exit the screen by heading to the list of units or properties.

From there you can follow the steps above, in "How do I start a new inspection?" Once you're in the right spot, the property list, you'll see the title bar is green. That's when you're good to go!
