After a vehicle is selected for inspection, any prior vehicle inspections reporting defects will be flagged with a red indicator.
Once a defect is reported, the DVIR must be documented once any necessary corrections have been made. This can be done by either an Encompass user or an Encompass® ELD user.

Mobile user documents that corrections have been to a defect
Sometimes, when a driver is completing a DVIR, they find a defect, but are able to remedy the issue right away. For example, they find a blown fuse in the vehicle, they may be able to replace the fuse then and there.
In cases like that, once they submit the DVIR reporting the defect, they can go back into the DVIR and Certify and Submit that the corrections are made and reviewed.
When they tap on the DVIR reporting the defect, they are brought to the DVIR Review screen which will show the defect(s) reported.
The user can then tap on the circle next to the item(s) to mark that as corrected, or, tap on the name of the item to indicate that it is still not repaired.
Then, tap Certify and Submit. The user will then be taken to the main screen showing any previous DVIRs. The After tapping Certify and Submit, it will take the user back to the main screen showing any previous DVIRs. The red indicator is no longer showing next to the inspection, indicating that the defect has been cleared. Additionally, if the inspection is viewed by tapping on it, the Certified By, Certified Date, and Corrections Made (or Corrections Not Made if Not Resolved was selected during the DVIR Review) fields are now shown as they were made by the driver.
