Also available on  


To add a person to the Project Directory on an iOS mobile device.


In Procore, a user is a person whose contact information has been added to the Procore application. Procore uniquely identifies its users by their email address. To add a person to Procore (a.k.a., create a new user account), the minimum requirements are:

  • Last Name. This is the user's surname.
  • Email Address. This is the unique identifier for a user in Procore. A user can be a member of one or more Procore company accounts (For example, a subcontractor who is doing work for two different general contractors (i.e., Nelson General Contractors) could be added as a user to both companies using the same email address (i.e., When logging in to Procore, he would be presented with the option to choose which company account he wants to view. He can also switch between companies while logged in). 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • Admin' level permission on the project's Directory tool.

  • Additional Information:
