Re: Radiant heating in ceiling

Re: Homegauge Bug and Gripe Thread

Modify your template on the PC. Close the software. Upload the template to the cloud. Suck down the new template to HGC. Do the report, send it all back to the PC. Get informed that "the template...

Re: Homegauge Bug and Gripe Thread

HG used to have a report preview mode that displayed the HTML report with page breaks in a full page view. I really liked that as it was easy to see if I needed to modify something, like maybe the...

Re: Homegauge Bug and Gripe Thread

Yes you did upgrade the desktop software in 2016. And your team disregarded all the bug issues and annoyances I sent them long before the desktop program was revised. How long has it been since they...

Re: Homegauge Bug and Gripe Thread

Russell, I'll be distressed to see the "Send Letter" feature removed from the desktop software. Your statement that "All the communication between your customer, agent happens online" is simply not...

Re: Homegauge Bug and Gripe Thread

To send email to your client or anyone from within HG, the programs says "Requires MS Outlook". What? Has anyone used Outlook in the past 10 years???

Re: Homegauge Bug and Gripe Thread

Click "Lead Source" in HG, but change your mind and don't select anything. Then upload the report to the cloud and download it into HG Companion. HG Companion goes haywires when you click the "Misc"...

Re: Homegauge Bug and Gripe Thread

HG Companion intermittently does not save the Styles and Materials items you click. Particularly if it is the last thing to be saved in the report.

Record the lead source in HG, upload the report to the cloud, download it into HG Companion. Poof. The lead source is gone.

Re: Homegauge Bug and Gripe Thread

Homegauge Companion does not record the inspection end inspection time intermittently. When it does, by the time you upload it to the cloud and download it to the desktop, the end time is gone. Poof.

Re: Do you inspect Solar Systems?

Nope. And I would think if you do it you need some significant training on the electrical components. If I did it, I would charge way extra for the extra liability.

Question Natural draft vented gas fireplace in master bathroom

Anyone ever seen this before? Natural draft prefab fireplace. Gas logs. No glass front. Bathroom communicates directly with the master bedroom. What would you say about it?

Both of you guys should discuss your increasingly heated issues elsewhere. This is a public forum where you represent the organization.
