Two New Granular Permissions For The Directory Tool (6/28/2017)

These new permissions replace the process for allowing 'Standards' to add users to projects in earlier versions of Procore (see the deprecated article, Allow a Standard User to Add a Person and Company to the Project Directory). For existing clients who have used this process, action may be required. Please refer to New Granular Permission Settings to Allow 'Standard' Users to Create and/or Add Users to a Project for details.

Updated the Company Directory tool to enable the Granular Permissions (GP) feature for all company accounts in Procore. To learn more about Granular Permissions, see Grant Granular Permissions in a Permission Template.

Then, on June 28, 2017, two new granular permission settings for the Directory tool See New Granular Permission Settings to Allow 'Standard' Users to Create and/or Add Users to a Project for details.
- For existing clients who have previously configured a permission template to allow users with 'Standard' level permission to create and add users to a project (see Allow a Standard User to Add a Person and Company to the Project Directory), you will need to be aware of how the new permission settings being released on June 28, 2017 will affect your existing permission templates.
