Customize inspection title formats

Learn how to customize templates' inspection title formats or naming conventions via the web app and the mobile app.

What is an inspection title?

An inspection title is a unique way to identify a report. Over time as you and your team conduct more and more inspections, it can become difficult to differentiate between them when they've been conducted from the same template. To have a unique inspection title, you can create naming conventions for your inspections so that the title of an inspection populates automatically with responses from the title page.

Limitations

  • If the inspection title is over the 250-character limit, exporting an inspection report as a PDF, Word, or CSV file automatically trims the file name.

  • Responses within repeat sections are not supported.

  • Inspection location, location, slider, annotation, signature, and instruction response types are not supported for the inspection title format.

Published changes made to templates only apply to new inspections moving forward.

Frequently asked questions

No, it's currently not possible to include your template's title as part of your inspection title format. If you'd like to include your template's title in your inspection title formats, please let us know by submitting your feedback.

Even though you can enable multiple selection for a multiple-choice question that's part of a template's inspection title format, multiple selection isn't fully supported for inspection title formats.

Limitation with multiple-choice questions in the inspection title format.

From the above example, only one of the responses ("Tokyo" or "Sydney") will be used in the inspection title. The order of selecting the responses won't affect the behavior.

Yes, all logic question responses are automatically included in inspection title formats. You can check out how it works by referring to the following example:

Title page's logic question highlighted on the web app.

In this example, if you select the "Company device" response, the logic field triggers the follow-up question asking you to choose which device you've used to conduct the inspection.

As you can see from the preview, the logic question's response becomes automatically included in the inspection title format.

Yes, you can customize this by changing your organization's date format. For example, if you've set your organization date format to dd.MM.yyyy, then this will be followed in your inspection titles:

If your organization doesn't have a date format set, the inspection titles will follow a yyyy-mm-dd format.

Please note that the inspection title format will always follow the language setting and date format set at the organization level and will override the format set at the user level.
