Add a Record to an Incident (Android)

Also available on     

Objective

To add a record to an incident using an Android mobile device.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • To add a record:
      • 'Standard' permissions or higher on the project's Incidents tool.
    • To add a contact in the 'Person Affected' field (see  What is a 'contact' in Procore and which project tools support the concept):
      • 'Standard' permissions or higher on the project's Incidents tool.
      • 'Read Only' or 'Standard' level permissions on the Project level Directory tool with the 'Create Contacts' granular permission enabled on your permission template.
        Notes:
        • Users who have been granted the 'Create Contacts' granular permission can:
          • Add a new contact when the person does NOT already exist in the Company or Project Directory.
          • View existing contacts as a drop-down selection for all projects in the company's Procore account.
        • Users who have NOT been granted the 'Create Contacts' granular permission do NOT have sufficient permission to add contacts. However, they do have sufficient permission to view contacts added by others on the project and to select an existing contact when adding a record.
  • Additional Information:
    • Custom options can be created for certain fields in a record. See Add Custom Options for Incident Fields.
      Note: These field options for incidents are managed in the Company level Admin tool and can only be created by users with 'Admin' permissions on the Company Admin tool.
