Add a Related Item to an RFI


To add a related item to an RFI.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • To add a related item to an RFI, 'Admin' permission on the RFIs tool.
    • To view the title of a related item on an RFI, 'Read-Only level permissions or above on the RFIs tool. 
    • To view a related item on an RFI, 'Read-Only' or 'Standard' level permission on the RFIs tool AND The user must either be selected in the 'Assigned To' field or a member of the 'Distribution' list on the RFI.
      Note: If you have permission to view a related item on an RFI, the related item will be a hyperlink that you can click to open in the item in a separate browser tab.
  • Additional Information:
    Most Procore objects can be attached to an RFI as a related item (e.g., bids, submittals, productivity log, prime contract change order, task, etc.) If a specific item type does not appear as a selectable option, it may mean that you do not have permissions to view this item in Procore, and therefore can't add it to the list.


  1. Navigate to the projects RFIs tool.
    This reveals the RFIs page, which displays all of the Open and Closed RFIs on the project. 
  2. In the Items view, locate the desired RFI and click View
    This reveals the RFI # Details page. 
  3. Click the Related Items subtab. 
    This reveals the Related Items page shown below. 

  4. Click Edit.
    This places the RFI into edit mode and reveals the 'Adding Related Items To' list. 

  5. From the Type list, select the type of item to add. 
    Note: Depending upon the Procore tools that are active on the project, you can select from a wide variety of Procore objects (e.g., Bids, Change Events, Documents, Drawing Revisions, Inspections, Meetings, Submittals, and more). 
  6. From the Description list, choose the desired item. 
    • What you select in the Type list determines what is available in the Description list. 
    • If the Description list does not contain any selections, the most likely reason is that an item has not been created in the corresponding Procore tool. For example, if you select Meeting and there are no meetings in the Description list, you may need to create a meeting first. 
    • After you select an option from the Description list, the system automatically populates the Date field.
