Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission: 'Standard' or 'Admin' on the project's Photos tool.
  • This action can be performed in offline mode (i.e. when an active network connection is not available on your mobile device). Tasks performed in offline mode will be synced with Procore once a network connection has been reestablished. 

  • You can upload 360˚ photos from your phone to Procore's app.
  • Tip: You can also quickly access your device's camera by swiping right from the Project Dashboard.


  1. Navigate to the Camera tool on an Android mobile device.
  2. Tap the Album bar to select the album to which you want to save your photo(s).
    Note: If no album is selected, the photo(s) will save to the album 'Unclassified' by default.

  3. Position your camera and tap the shutter release button to take the desired photo(s).
    Note: This action automatically captures and saves the photo(s) to your project.
  4. Optional: Tap the image thumbnail to perform the following tasks:
    • Delete: Tap Delete icon-delete-trash-with-bkgd-android.png to delete your photo.
      Note: Only 'Admin' level users on the Photos tool can delete a photo.

      • Description
      • Location
      • Trade
      • Album
