What are custom project roles?


In Procore, the custom project roles feature in the Company level Admin tool gives your company the ability to create a customized list of project roles that reflect your organization's unique semantics for role-labeling. For example, some company's may wish to simply create a called 'Project Manager', while other organization's might prefer their role to be more specific to a professional title 'Senior Project Manager' or 'Assistant Project Manager' role.

Other examples of roles you might want to create include: 

Examples of the types of project roles you might create include: Owner, Vice President, Senior Project Manager, Project Architect, Project Manager, Assistant Project Manager, Field Project Manager, Land Planner, Senior Project Architect, Associate Architect, Concrete Contractor,  Drywall Contractor, Electrical Contractor, Plumbing Contractor, and so on. 

When adding a custom project role, you must always specify the 'Type' (i.e., whether the role is performed by a Person or a Company). In addition, a custom project role must specify the 'Group' (i.e., whether the role can be classified under Construction ManagersDesign TeamGeneral ContractorsMiscellaneousOwner, and Subcontractors. Note: 'Groups' are default selections in Procore and cannot be customized). 

After you've create your company's list of project roles, you can then identify all the 'Project Team' members by role on each project's Home page (see Add the Project Team to the Project Home Page). You can also can opt to include the custom project roles that you create in a custom Portfolio report (see Create Custom Portfolio Reports).
