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.
