Automatically export inspection reports to Dropbox

Learn how to automatically export inspection reports to SharePoint.

Take note

  • 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 "data access" permission to have visibility over all inspections in your organization.

  • Inspection reports are exported to Dropbox following a foldering structure of "SafetyCulture / [site name] / [template title] / [yyyy-mm]". The SafetyCulture folder name is static to help you identify where the data is coming from.

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".
