Also available on    windows-gray-icon.jpg  


To create a punch list item from your Android mobile device. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission: 'Standard' or 'Admin' on the project's Punch List tool.
    • 'Admin' level users have complete control of the punch list items and can edit and update any assignee response.
    • 'Standard' level users can view all responses, but can only update their response if they are an assignee on the punch list item.
    • 'Read-only' level users cannot be assigned a punch list item.
  • Punch items can be assigned to multiple persons.
  • You will only be able to assign a punch item to a user that exists in the project's directory. If an assignee is missing from the list, he/she must first be added to the project directory before the user can become a selectable option in the dropdown picker.
  • Punch item types cannot be created when creating a punch item. Types must be created by an 'Admin' user in the tool's configuration settings before a type can be selected when creating a new punch item. See Configure Advanced Settings: Punch List.
  • This action can be performed in offline mode (i.e. when an active network connection is not available on your mobile device). Tasks performed in offline mode will be synced with Procore once a network connection has been reestablished.
