What is a company admin?


Company Administrator is a user who has 'Admin' level permissions on all Company level tools in Procore. Granting a user ‘Admin’ level permissions to the Company level Directory tool automatically assigns that user ‘Admin’ permissions on all Company level tools. Also called a Procore Administrator.

Is your company paying subcontractor invoices with Procore Pay? Due to the sensitive nature of financial transactions, Company Admins in Procore are NOT granted full access to the Company level Payments tool in the Procore Pay product. To learn about the Payments Admin role for administering the Company level Payments tool, see What is a Payments Admin?

  • Create custom company reports
  • Make key decisions and submit requests to Procore Customer Support, Customer Success, and Sales. 

Common Questions

What happens when I assign a user 'Admin' level permissions on the Company Directory?

That user is granted ‘Admin’ level permissions to the Company level Directory tool and all other available Company level tools by default, making them a Procore Administrator (a.k.a., Company Admin). 

Why can't I assign Someone 'Admin' permissions to Only the Company Directory?

By design, when you grant 'Admin' level permissions to the Company Directory, you are granting that user 'Admin' level permissions to all Company level tools. The option to change the access level for all other Company level tools is grayed out and unavailable. 

Can a Company Admin Manage their own permissions in Procore?

Yes. A Procore Administrator (a.k.a., Company Admin) can manage their own permission assignments on all available Company level tools when the 'Company Permissions Template' setting is set to Do Not Apply A Permission Template in that administrator's user account. A Procore Administrator can also manage their own permission assignments on all Project level tools for any project listed in the 'Current Project Settings' section of their user account. 

If you are a Procore Administrator and you choose to remove your own 'Admin' level permissions on the Company Directory tool, another Procore Administrator at your company will need to restore your 'Admin' level permissions for you. If you do not have another Procore Administrator, please Contact Support.

Anything else I need to know?

  • Procore Administrators (a.k.a., Company Admins) can access their user account in the Company level Directory tool and review the 'Current Project Settings' and 'Project [User Name] Does Not Belong To' sections. These sections provide a list of all projects to which they can gain access. 
  • To perform all available administrative actions in a project, Procore Administrators may also want to add themselves to the project and provide themselves with ‘Admin’ level permissions to the appropriate Project level tools.
