Can I use Procore's mobile application offline?

Background

If you are using Procore's mobile application on a job site, there may be several remote locations where you will not have network connectivity (i.e. WiFi or cellular service). In those types of situations you may wonder in what capacity you can use Procore's mobile application.

Answer

In most cases, you can still use Procore's mobile application even though you do not have WiFi or cellular data connectivity. Although using Procore's mobile application in offline mode is very similar to using Procore's mobile in online mode, there are a few things to take into consideration:

  • You will only be able to view items in Procore that you recently viewed on your mobile application in online mode (i.e. data that has been cached on your device already.)
    Note: "Cached data" is data that is available on your phone or computer without retrieving the information from the source/host location.
    • Important! Once you're in offline mode, you will not be able to successfully retrieve new project data until a network connection has been restored. Therefore, if you know that you will be in a location on the job site where you know you will not have network connectivity, you should view any assets that you might need in Procore (in online mode) before your device switches to offline mode. In such situations, it's important to prepare your mobile device by downloading all items (e.g. RFIs, punch list items, inspections, etc.) that you'll need in offline mode. Simply viewing an asset once in online mode is sufficient for being able to view that item again in offline mode. 
  • Procore's mobile applications (Android, iOS, and Windows) have offline capabilities regardless of whether you're using the application on a tablet or smartphone.
    • Note: Procore's Windows Mobile App has limited offline capabilities. As more features are released, more tools and items will be available offline. 
  • If you delete Procore's mobile application from your phone, you will lose your "cached" data.
  • Any actions that you perform in the mobile application in offline mode will not be pushed to Procore until a network connections is reestablished. Once the mobile application is in-sync with Procore (in online mode) all project data will become synchronized and become available to all users on the project. For example, created punch list items will appear in Procore in both the web and mobile applications for all users.
