To lock/make private and change user permissions for a specific file and/or folder in Procore's Documents tool. This will control which users have access to a file or folder's contents.
If you are a Procore administrator or project manager, you may want to hide documents from users who have 'Standard' or 'Read-only' permissions on the Documents tool, so that only 'Admin' users can view and modify documents. For example, you may want to make a file/folder private that contains sensitive budget or contract information that should not be visible to most users on a project.
Warning! Any user with 'Admin' permissions can make a file private or publicly visible to all users.
The best practice is to make an entire folder private to hide all of the contents from 'Standard' level users and below, and to make specific files private to give 'Standard' and 'Read-only' level users access to the folder without showing them those specific files.
