An EROAD Inspect report is created when an inspection is submitted by a driver. The Inspect report is the historic, audit view of the defects found during the pre-trip or post-trip inspection and is a record of the actions taken on the defects. Inspect reports are also accessible from the Reports menu in Depot. See Inspect Reports for more information.
