Backup/ Restore file

Create a backup file

As an inspector, it’s costly and frustrated to lose inspection data for any reason. Therefore, we suggest several approaches to secure your data.

  • Upload inspections along the way.
  • Create a backup file before uploading
    1. Click the hamburger menu
    2. Select Backup and Restore
    3. Select Backup
    4. Specific the folder where you want to save the backup file
    5. Click Done
  • Click Backup in the prompted dialog - which is displayed when you click Upload - and follow instructions


Restore file

Similar to Backup, from the hamburger icon hamburger.png,

  1. Navigate to Backup and Restore > Restore
  2. Select the file you want to restore


  • If you are restored the data that you have uploaded previously, any changes you are going create on this file cannot be uploaded.


  • If you restore a file in new device to upload, all the ex-devices are invalid to upload.

Refresh license key when changing devices

When you buy an Onix Inspect license, you assign this license to the inspector’s account of your company. Each license is meant to be used by ONE inspector on ONE device at a time.

With that being said, we fully understand that there are several cases that you need more than one device during inspection

  • Phone is broken, runs out of battery, or can’t connect to server
  • Other devices support the next inspection better, for the sake of convenience and efficiency.

Take that into account, we have implemented an appropriate solution to control device license.

When you log in and download or upload data in a new device - which is different from the one most recently used, any pending items in your ex-devices will no longer be valid to upload. In that case,

  • Your new device will display a warning dialog and ask for your consent before moving forward.
  • Once you agree to proceed with the new device by clicking Continue, you are no longer able to upload data from the other device.


Note : Each device used has a unique Installation ID - which is used to identify itself. However, if you uninstall Onix Inspect, then install again in the same device, the Installation ID will be refreshed as well. In that case, you will get the warning that “Pending items in other devices will not be uploaded”, but it would not be a problem as long as you are doing so in 1 device only.


Create Job Report

The Job Report remains pretty much as is - which is a tool to show your customer an overview of inspection results and delegate responsibilities. The idea is that you sit down with the customer in an office or other places where there is internet connection and run the report.

To create job report,

  1. Select Job Report in the main menu
  2. Select of criterion for the report
  3. Preview the number of equipment that you have performed inspection grouped by control category
  4. Preview the number of inspected equipment that you have performed quick inspection grouped by control category
  5. Preview list of findings and distribution of responsibility for these findings
  6. Sign job report
  7. Summarize job reports and send to selected recipients
