Create a Company Level Observation Template


To create observations templates at the Company level.


Observation Templates allows Procore users to create a library of common observation items that can be organized by type. Default titles and trades can be assigned to these observation templates. When a Procore user creates a new observation from a mobile device, they can select one of these templates, which will auto-populate fields on the new observation item with default information from the template. Users can then add or edit information as needed, save the observation item, and move on. This allows users to select common observation items from their library and create new observation items more efficiently and with significantly less typing.
