Configure Advanced Settings: Emails

Objective

To configure advanced settings for the project's Emails tool. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • 'Admin' level permission on the project's Emails tool.
  • Restrictions:
  • Additional Information:
    • If a user with 'Admin' level permission to the project's Emails tool creates a 'Default Distribution' list using the steps below, the members of that list will receive all messages that have been created in and sent from your project's Emails tool or sent to the Emails tool via the inbound email address. This includes messages marked 'Private'.

Steps

You can use the steps below to configure the following advanced settings for the Emails tool:

Configure the Email Tool's Settings

  1. Navigate to the project's Emails tool.
    This reveals the Emails page. 
  2. Click the Configure Settings  icon.
    This reveals the 'Email Settings' page.

  3. Complete the following data entry:
    • Inbound Email Address. The system automatically assigns an inbound email address to every project on which the Emails tool is active. When someone emails this address, their message and its attachments are stored in the project's Emails tool in their native file format (for example, if the sender attached a DOC or PDF to the email, it is stored as a DOC or PDF).
      Notes:

      • Anyone who knows the project's inbound email address can use it to upload content directly into the project's Emails tool without having to log in to Procore and upload content. This is useful when the message sender does not have a user profile in your company's Directory tool.
      • The system automatically creates the inbound email address. It cannot be modified. If you have any questions about this address, please contact support@procore.com
    • Communications 'Private' By Default. Mark this checkbox to make new emails 'Private' by default. A private email can only be viewed by its recipient(s). Remove the checkmark to make all emails visible to any user with permission to access the Emails tool (Note: This is the default setting).  

    • Default Distribution. Select recipients and distribution groups from this list to add them to the default distribution list for the project's Emails tool.
      Important! 

      • If a user with 'Admin' level permission to the project's Emails tool creates a 'Default Distribution' list, the members of that list will receive all messages that have been created in and sent from your project's Emails tool or sent to the Emails tool via the inbound email address. This includes all messages marked 'Private'.
      • To ensure that your project's sensitive communications remain private, its recommended that you always use discretion when adding members to this list and that you also inform project user's of any specific guidelines associated related to communications with the Emails tool.  
    • Copy Tags From Another Project. If you have created tags/keywords to use for classifying email in another project, you can copy those tags from another project. This list only displays the project in your company's account to which you have granted access permission. See How do I use Tags/Keywords in Procore?

  4. Click Update.
    This saves your configuration settings. 

Set User Permissions for the Emails Tool

  1. Navigate to the project's Emails tool.
    This reveals the Emails pane. 
  2. In the right pane, click Configure Email Settings
    This reveals the Emails Settings page. 
  3. In the right pane, click Permissions Table.



    This reveals the User Permissions for Emails page. 
  4. Choose from these options:
    • If a user is NOT associated with a permission template, you may change their permission for the Emails tool by clicking the None, Ready Only, Standard or Admin column until one of these symbols appears: 
      • User Permissions - check.png Access. A GREEN checkmark indicates the user has been granted access permission. 
      • User Permissions - x.png No Access. A RED checkmark indicates the user has NOT been granted access permission.  


         
    • Notes:
      • If a user has 'Admin' level permission to the Company Directory, you cannot modify that users access permission from the emails tool.


         
      • If a user is associated with a permission template, you may not modify that user's access permission from the Emails tool. See Manage Permission Templates


         
  5. When finished, click Back to return to the Emails tool.
    Your user permission changes will be saved automatically.
