Questions and Answers

What is a “Beta” version?

When something is a "beta" version it means that it's ready for previewing, but is not finished and may contain things that are wrong or that don't work.

Is this ready for issue?

No, not yet. It will not be ready for issue until we are out of beta.

What’s not ready yet?

At present, there are a number of things that are not present or are not finished. We will be adding these over the next few weeks.

For example, the intelligence has not been adjusted for Amendment 3, the report is still being refined, there is no three phase handling as well as some more things that are still in progress too.

What devices can I use it on?

Currently the online version is available and can be used from any device that can access the internet. So, that means you can use it on your iPad, Android or Windows tablet as well as from your Windows or Mac laptop.

How will it work with Pirform?

You will be able to upload your certificates from Pirform. Pirform will keep going until we release our new Shine Forms Desktop programs, which you will be able to use Windows and Mac OSX. See our roadmap for more details.

What's next?

Over the next few weeks, We will be completing the Electrical Installation Condition Report, Electrical Installation Certificate, Minor Works and Visual Condition for amendment 3 and making these available online first.

We will then add the intelligence to these forms and bring out the tablet versions. The tablet versions will look exactly like the online version and you will be able to move between using your iPad and the online at any time as you complete the report.
