If you are using data with structured records, you may see warnings for those records in your Google Search Console Improvement report. Google now reports warnings for any Dataset object that lacks the recommended Creator property.

About a year ago, Google added an improvement report for data with structured records in the Google Search Console. This report will only appear if you are using the data from the dataset on your site. In this case, warnings may appear asking you to use the Creator property.

The creator property is a person or organization-like property. This defines the creator or author of this data record. To uniquely identify people, use the ORCID-ID as the value of the sameAs property of the person type. Use the ROR-ID to uniquely identify institutions and organizations.
