Procore

Edit Configurable Fieldsets

Objective

To edit configurable fieldsets that have been created for tools in Procore.

Background

configurable fieldset is a group of fields in certain Procore tools that can be set to optional, required, or hidden, depending on the needs of your company. This allows for better control over data entry when users create and edit items in Procore projects. See What are configurable fieldsets and which Procore tools support them?

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' level permissions on the Company level Admin tool. 
  • Additional Information:
    • By default, configurable fieldsets are only applied to new projects. However, you can select which existing projects to apply them to.
    • Configurable fieldsets applied to projects will be reflected on both Procore's web and mobile applications.
    • Changing a field's requirements ('Required' or 'Optional') will impact creating new items or updating existing items on projects that the configurable fieldset was applied to.
    • When custom fields are added to or removed from a configurable fieldset that is applied to one or more projects, the custom fields will be added to or removed from all of the fieldset's existing and new items within the projects.
    • If you want to configure fieldsets for specific tools, see What are configurable fieldsets and which Procore tools support them?
