Automatically export inspection reports to Google Drive

Learn how to automatically export inspection reports to Google Drive.

How does the export inspection report integration work?

Inspection reports that get exported are based on the inspections, which the account that sets up the integration has access to. If you're an administrator, you can give yourself inspection access or assign yourself the "Override permissions: View all data" permission to have visibility over all inspections in your organization.

Inspection reports that are exported to the cloud storage, such as SharePoint, follow a folder structure of "SafetyCulture / [site name]". The SafetyCulture folder name is static to help you identify where the data is coming from.

You may need to enable third-party cookies for your browser to support this integration.

If an inspection doesn't have a title, it'll be exported and named using its audit_id. We recommend that you set up an inspection title format for each template, so that inspections can be named following a convention.

If an inspection doesn't have a site selected, it'll be exported to a folder called "No Site".

The integration may have been turned off due to an authentication error. Either because the external account used for the integration no longer has access to the system or its permissions to make changes have been removed.

When this happens, an email would be sent to users with the "Platform management: Organization" permission to inform them about the error. To fix the problem, we recommend that you uninstall the integration and follow the instructions to install it again.
