How To Create Areas

Areas are used to categorize your locations. Areas can be used to group locations by neighborhood, inspector, district or any way that makes sense for your department. Areas are available in the following modules: 

1. Using your computer, log into CityReporter web with your city code, username, and password. Select a module and click the location Management button at the top of the screen, as shown.

2. Click the Areas button.

3. Click on the Create Area button at the top right of the screen.

4. Name your Area as desired. If you would like inspection reports from this Area sent to an email address when they are completed, enter an address into the “Contact E-Mails” field. To enter multiple email addresses, separate them with a semi-colon (;). Once you are finished, click the Save button. Please note, you must also enable the “Email on sync to Area Contacts” option on a location for inspection reports to be emailed to the Area Contact(s) for that location. See our tutorial How To Automatically Email Inspection Reports for step by step instructions.
