Create a Company Level Inspection Template

Objective

To create an inspections template at your Company level for use in all of your Project level inspections.

Background

Creating Inspections templates at the Company level allows you to easily use the same or similar templates across your projects without having to remake them each time. You can always make a new inspection template at your Project level, or you can modify an existing Company level template to for your project's unique needs. However, new templates and changes made to existing templates at the Project level will not sync to the Company level, and are therefore not useable outside of that project.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions: 'Admin' level permissions on the company's Inspections tool.
  • Although you can create new inspection templates at the Project level, you can not add any inspection templates made at the Project level to another project in your company. For this reason, the best practice to manage your Inspections in Procore is to create inspection templates at the Company level to use at the Project level and modify those templates for each of your project's needs.

Steps

  1. Navigate to the Company level Inspections tool.
  2. Click Create.
    Note: You can also Clone an Existing Company Level Inspection Template.
    This reveals the New Inspection Template page. 
  3. Under General Information, enter the following information:
    • Name: Title your inspection. This will show up on your inspections log page and will help you differentiate between your inspections within your project. This is a required field.
    • Type: Choose from the list of inspection types added to the company (e.g. Safety). (Note: If you have not added inspection types to your project, see Configure Advanced Settings: Company level Inspections. You will need to have 'Admin' level permissions on the Company level Inspections tool.)
    • Trade: Add a trade to your inspection (e.g. Electrical, plumbing). (Note: Your company's trade list can be managed at your Company level's Admin tab under 'Trade Configuration.) 
    • Description: Include any relevant details about the inspection.
    • Attachments: Attach any relevant files to the templates by clicking Attach Files or by using a drag-and-drop operation.
      Note: If you try to create an inspection template without a name or with a name that already exists, there will be an error message details the reason. You can create an inspection with the same name as one in the Recycle Bin, but once you name it the same, you cannot restore a template in the Recycle Bin without first editing an inspection template to change the name.)
  4. Select the desired Standard Response Phrasing from the following options:
    Note: The response phrasing you select will apply to ALL items in this template, including items in previous inspections created from this template.
    • 'Pass' and 'Fail': Select this set to enable team members to choose between the responses 'Pass' and 'Fail' when performing the inspection.
    • 'Safe' and 'At Risk': Select this set to enable team members to choose between the responses 'Safe' and 'At Risk' when performing the inspection.

  6. Select a response type for your inspection items. Choose from the following options:
    • Default 
      • Standard: Users can respond to items by selecting Pass/Safe, Fail/At Risk, or N/A.
      • Number: Users can respond to items in the form of any positive or negative number up to 15 characters.
      • Text: Users can respond to items with free-form text. There is no character limit to text responses.
      • Date: Users can respond to items by adding an appropriate date.
    • Multiple Response
      • Add an existing multiple response set you want to associate with the item. See Create a Multiple Choice Inspections Response Set.
