View a Punch List Item


To understand how to interpret a punch list item and its information.


Punch list items are always project-specific and will be listed under a project's Punch List tool. By default, you will only view "Open" punch list items. Use the "Status" filter to change which punch list items will be shown. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission
    • To view a punch item marked 'Private' and the contents of the 'Change History' tab, 'Admin' on the project's Punch List tool.
    • To view a punch item assigned to a colleague who works for your company (including punch items marked as 'Private'), 'Read-Only' or 'Standard' permission on the project's Punch List tool and you must be granted the 'View Private Punch Items Assigned to Users Within Same Company' granular permission. See Grant Granular Permissions in a Permission Template.
    • To view a punch item on which you are an Assignee and/or a member of the Distribution List, 'Standard' on the project's Punch List tool. This lets you:
      • Email and export a punch item as a PDF.
      • Respond to any punch item to which you've been assigned.
      • View the General, Related Items, and Emails tabs on punch items.
        Note: Private punch list items can also be made visible to 'Standard' users.
    • To view a punch item not marked 'Private', 'Read-only' on the project's Punch List tool. This lets you:
      • View the General, Related Items, Emails, and Change History tabs of public punch items.
      • View punch items marked 'Private' when you are a member of the item's Distribution List and/or granted the granular permission specified above.
      • View the number of changes made to the punch list item.
        Note: You cannot view the detailed changes in the punch item or edit the punch item.
