Validate Project checks to make sure that your project matches your Word report template.
The most common source of errors is a report-template mismatch. If there is a difference between the fields and properties your report template is looking for and the ones defined in your project, you'll likely end up with a corrupted file or missing content when you export the report.
Another common cource of errors is incorrectly formatted screenshots. Screenshots should be placed on their own line in your Dradis project with no trailing spaces or other characters.When should I validate my project?
Make sure to validate your project any time you run into Word error when exporting a project.
Many times, errors like the one shown above are caused by a missing Issue field or document property. Validating your project eliminates these simple errors. If you're still having problems with your report template after validating the project, please reach out to our Support team.
