Edit Configured Observation Fieldsets


To edit an existing configured observation fieldsets.


Admin users can configure fieldsets and field options for the Observations tool. This determines what fields and options are available for project team member's using the Observations tool. A fieldset is a group of fields that determines whether data entry is optional, required, or hidden from view when team members create or edit an item. A field option is a selection that appears in a drop-down list in the Observations tool.

There are two types of configurations that can be applied to each field set: 

  • Procore Default. These are the default settings and specify whether data entry is optional, required, or hidden from view when creating or editing an item.
  • Company Default. If you choose to use the steps below to configure a company-specific fieldset, these will be applied to all new projects and any existing projects that you specify.
