Same, I like to have time to check things real quick.

This is true in most cases, but I have had a few occasions where the client needed it immediately due to lack of planning and forethought. They were extremely pleased to have it in their email before I left the property.

When I do post from the field, I either include a disclaimer stating that the report may be subject to amendment, or I make 100% sure it is good to go by sitting down and reviewing the report and tweaking it until it is ready to go.

Sometimes I will post from the field for my convenience. If I have a few hours between inspections but not enough time to go back to the office, and if the inspection was not complicated, I get some lunch, tweak the report and post it. It's nice to get home and have only one (or no) report to put to bed.
