Using the water mitigation log

Updated 2 months ago by Heather Andersen

The water mitigation log in Xactimate Sketch allows you to track climate and saturation readings as well as equipment usage over the duration of the mitigation project.

Before using the log

Before you use the water mitigation log, you must complete the following:

Accessing the log

The mitigation log is located within Sketch > XactScope, and the Mitigation Log tab appears next to the Guide tab.

To see log data, complete the following:

  1. Select a day from the options at the top.
  1. Select the log you want to view. Options include the following:
  • Air Movers
  • Air Scrubbers
  • Climate Readings
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Saturation Readings
  1. Select the down arrow for the appropriate individual reading or equipment.

Editing the water mitigation log

Make any necessary changes in the pane; all changes are saved according to your Xactimate settings.

To add to the mitigation log, perform the following steps:

  1. Create your sketch, including rooms, mitigation equipment, zones, and affected areas.
  2. Select the Mitigation Log tab to open it.
  3. Select the room(s) for which you want to enter data.
  4. Select the appropriate day or select the + option to add another day.

The cards that appear vary depending on the room(s) selected and the equipment inside.
