Create Custom Fields for the T&M Tickets Tool
Procore has updated the Company level Admin tool to give you the ability to create custom fields for the T&M Tickets tool. Creating new custom fields is helpful when your company wants to track extra details related to the T&M tickets created in the field.
Some examples of how you can use custom fields to meet your business requirements include:
- To provide your field team with a way to indicate that work on the ticket is complete, you can add a custom ‘Checkbox’ field to the General Information section on your T&M Tickets.
- To provide your Foreman with the ability to record what task each worker performed when recording labor entries, you can add a custom ‘plain text’ field for additional notes.
- To record the type of equipment was used on a T&M Ticket, you can add a custom ‘Single Select (Dropdown)’ field to distinguish if it is rented or owned equipment.

After creating a custom field, you can then add it to a configurable fieldset (see Create New Configurable Fieldsets). After adding your custom field to a fieldset, you can then define whether that field is going to be required, optional, or hidden in the T&M Tickets tool.
- Include your custom fields in your Company and Project level reports. If you want to include a custom field in any custom T&M Tickets reports, your custom fields will be available in Procore's reporting tools. See Create a Custom Company Report or Create a Custom Project Report.
Note: Custom fields are NOT currently supported with Procore Analytics.
