Directory (Project Level)
Procore's Project level Directory tool stores all of your project-specific contact information. Contacts can be employees, project team members, or other business entities, such as subcontractors or vendors. A user assigned "Admin' level permissions to this tool can add a contact strictly so their information is available for use in Procore or they can invite contacts to join Procore and log into the system as an end user.

1 Before a user with 'Standard' level permissions to the project's Directory tool can add a person/company to the Project Directory, a user with 'Admin' level permissions to the Company and Project level Directory must delegate authority to the user following these steps: Allow a Standard User to Add a Person to the Project Directory.

Below are the notable changes to the Project level Directory tool.
Updated permissions in Procore so that now, users with 'Standard' level permission to the Directory cannot create a new vendor from the Directory's Contact Edit page. Note that users with 'Admin' permission to the Directory tool will still be permitted to create new company/vendor records by adding new information in the 'Company Information' fields on the Contact Edit page.
Updated the Project Directory tool to added a '(None)' option in the 'Project Permission Templates' drop-down list on the Edit Contact Information page.
Updated the contact Edit page in the Project Directory so that when a user selects the 'Do Not Apply a Permission Template' option from the 'Project Permission Templates' menu, the system now hides the informational banner saying that permissions are not editable. It also enables the radio buttons used to set the user's permissions for Procore tools on the project. See Add Person to Project Directory.
Updated the Project level Directory tool so that the 'Project Roles' drop-down list (which appears on the create/edit person pages) now lists the role selections in the same order that the selections appear in the 'Project Roles' page under 'Administrative Settings' in the Company level Admin tool.
