I broke the Global list down into a lot of detail BUT, for example, in creating the Local list I left Primary Roof Covering as one Inspection Item and listed under that is a detailed list of like, 12 primary roof coverings, each broken down into General Condition, Deficiencies, Deterioration, Buckling, Cracking, Splitting, Hail damage, Wind Damage, Tree Damage, etc.
So the Inspection item lists are short but the filter lists are long. I gave each type of primary roof covering an acronym:
- ACS is Asphalt Composition Shingle
- BUR is Built-up Roof
- ClayT is Clay Tile Roof
…and so on. It’s grouped nicely and pretty easy to follow, but it’s kind of a long list. But would it be better to list all 12 Roof-covering Types as Inspection items and have the Filter lists be shorter? It’s a big library, and one or the other is going to have to be kind of long, I don’t think there’s any middle ground.
I’m halfway through local list development and want to make sure this is the best approach before cranking out the rest of it.
