Create a Group in the Conversations Tool (Beta)

 In Beta
The Conversations tool is currently in beta. For more information, see Getting Started with Procore Conversations and How do I opt in to the beta for Procore Conversations?

Objective

To create a group to send messages to within the Conversations tool in Procore.

Background

When you create a group in the Conversations tool, you are creating a group conversation that allows you to send a message to a designated team members at the same time. These group messages can be viewed and replied by team members in the Groups section of the Conversations tool, organized by project.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
  • Additional Information:
    • You are automatically added to a group that you create.
    • If the Conversations tool is configured to allow only 'Administrators' to create and manage groups, we recommend keeping at least one Admin in a group so that it can be managed. Admin users are shown with (Admin) after their name in the user selection list.

Steps

  1. Navigate to the Conversations tool (click the Conversations icon-conversations.png icon in the top menu of Procore).
  2. In the 'Groups' section, click the create icon-plus-2.png icon.

    • Group Name: Enter a name for the group (such as the name of a trade).
    • Team Members: Select the people you want to add to the group. If your project has distribution groups, you can select one to automatically add everyone in that group to the message. See Add a Distribution Group to the Project Directory.
      • A maximum of 100 members can be added.
