Configure Advanced Settings: Photos

Objective

To configure advanced settings for the Photos tool.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission: 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Photos tool.

Steps

  1. Navigate to your project's Photos tool.
  2. Click the Configure settings  icon.
  3. Set your preferences for the fields under Photo Settings or Permissions Table.

Project Photo Settings

  1. Click on the Photo Settings sub tab in the right sidebar.
  2. Set your preferences in according to your company's needs.


     
    • Allow photos to be emailed into Procore: Select this box to allow emails to be emailed to the Photos tool in Procore. For steps on how to do this, see Where can I find the email address to send photos, documents, and emails to Procore?
    • Allow anyone to email photos to Procore: Check this box if you want to allow anyone to email photos to Procore regardless if they have access to the Photos tool. If this is not checked, only users who have access to the Photos tool (Read-only, Standard, and Admin level users) will be able to email inbound photos.
    • New photos private by default: Check the box next to uploaded within the Photos tool to have photos uploaded within the Photos tool private by default so only Admin users can view them. Check the box next to emailed into Procore to have photos emailed into Procore private by default so only Admin users can view them.
    • When new albums are created, add them (to the beginning of the list / to the end of the list): Click the button next to the option you prefer. If you have albums sorted by date, you may want to change where new albums are placed (in this case, from oldest to newest, or from newest to oldest).
    • Default album for emailed photos: Select an album that photos emailed into Procore will be added to.​ By default, this will be the "Unclassified" album. (Note: You can always move photos to different albums.)
    • Default album for drawing photos: Select an album that photos uploaded to a drawing in the Drawings tool will be added to. By default, this will be an album called, "Photos from Drawings." See Add Photos to a Drawing.

Permissions Table

  1. Click the Permissions Table sub tab in the right sidebar.
  2. Set each user's permission for the Photos tool according to your preferences.

  3. For a list of what users can do at each permission level in Photos, see the Permissions Matrix.
  4. In the example screenshot below, the users have 'Standard,' 'Read only,' and 'None' level permissions, respectively.
