Where do the selections in the 'Spec Section' drop-down list come from?

Answer

Depending upon the tools that are active on your project (e.g., RFIs, Submittals, etc.), the selections in the 'Spec Section' drop-down list can be sourced from one (1) of the Procore tools described below:

Project Level Specifications Tool

If your company started using Procore after the release of the Specifications tool (see Enable the Specifications Tool) or if the project's Specifications tool is added to your project's toolbox (see Add and Remove Tools on a Project), the following is true:

  • The selections in the 'Spec-Section' drop-down list are sourced from your project's Specifications tool.
  • If you want to create a new spec section while using a Procore project tool:
    1. Scroll to the bottom of the Spec Section drop-down list.
    2. Click the Create New Spec Section button.
      This opens the Create New Specification Section window. 
    3. Enter a new Spec #. This is a required field. 
    4. Enter a Description.
    5. Click Create Spec Section
      This creates a new spec section in the Specifications tool. 
      Important! Your new spec section will not be associated with a PDF until one is uploaded with a matching title and number (see Upload Specifications and Upload Specification Revisions). 

Project Level Admin Tool

If your company's Procore project was created prior to the release of the Specifications tool (see Enable the Specifications Tool) and you have NOT added the Specifications to the project's toolbox (see Add and Remove Tools on a Project), the following is true:

  • The selections in the 'Spec Sections' list are sourced from your project's Admin tool (see Add Spec Sections to the Admin Tool).
  • If you want to create a new spec section when using a Procore project tool:
    1. Scroll to the bottom of the Spec Section drop-down list.
    2. Click the Create New Spec Section button.
      This opens the Create New Specification Section window.
    3. Enter a new Spec # . This is a required field.
    4. Enter a Description.
    5. Click Create Spec Section.
      This adds the new spec section to the Admin tool.
  • To make changes the new spec section, see Edit Spec Sections in the Admin Tool.
