Create Your Company's Default Work Breakdown Structure

Objective

To create your company's default Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)

Background

When you are setting up your Work Breakdown Structure for the first time, you have a choice between using the default budget code and structure that comes with Procore or you can customize this structure to create your own company level WBS. This tutorial provides you with an overview of the the steps you take to customize Procore's default WBS for your company's Procore account. If you are customizing your WBS, you'll want to complete this step before customizing your WBS for your individual projects. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' level permissions on the Company level Admin tool. 
  • Limitations:
    • For customers using Procore's Field Productivity tools
      The default segments in WBS are compatible with icon-external-link.png Field Productivity. Custom segments are NOT yet supported. To learn more, see Why can't I create WBS custom segments?
    • For customers using the Company level ERP Integrations tool
      The default segments in WBS are compatible with Procore's ERP Integrations tool. However, the synchronization process does NOT yet support custom segments. To learn more, see Why can't I create WBS custom segments?
    • For customers who have independently developed or purchased a third-party solution to integrate with Procore
      To take advantage of the custom segment capabilities associated with WBS, any existing API integrations that you have independently developed or purchased to interact with Procore must be updated to support Procore's new WBS API. To learn more, see Do we need to update our API Integrations for WBS?
