What are App Configurations and how do I work with them?

Background

Apps you install in Procore companies are managed in projects using App configurations. This article defines what an App configuration is and how Procore company administrators and project users can create and manage them.

App Configurations Explained

Apps you install in a Procore company must first be set up in that company's projects in order for Procore project users to access the extended functionality those Apps provide. App developers may define custom properties, or configurable fields, that can be used to tailor the operation and behavior of an App to the specific needs of a given project. For example, a project site camera App might require a camera ID number as a required App configurable field in order to associate the proper image feed with a particular project.

App set up at the project level is accomplished by creating an App configuration and applying it to the project. Company administrators and project users use the App Management feature to create App configurations and apply them to one or more projects. Each App configuration includes a user-defined title along with values for any required or optional configurable fields as defined by the App developer.

It is important to note that a single App configuration can be applied to multiple projects in the same company. Further, an individual App can have multiple configurations applied to a single project. App configurations provide a powerful and flexible way to manage Apps and how your organization consumes them.

Creating App Configurations and Applying Them to Projects

For information on creating App configurations, Procore company administrators should refer to Create an App Configuration and Apply it to Projects, while Procore project users should refer to Create an App Configuration in a Project.

 Important!
Note that project users, regardless of their permissions, are allowed to create App configurations, but are not allowed to edit or delete them. As a company administrator, you can elect to prevent all project users from configuring Apps in projects. Please reach out to your Procore Customer Success Manager to enable this setting.
