Add Tiered Locations to a Project

Objective

To add tiered locations to a project using the project's Admin tool.

Background

In Procore, tiered locations give users the ability to link different Procore objects (e.g., Drawings, Documents, RFIs, Submittals, and more) to be linked to specific locations on a job site. This helps project team members to pinpoint the exact location(s) on a job site where a defect was observed, where equipment is to be installed, or where a project change order occurred. 

EXAMPLES
Let's say your project includes the construction of a parking lot, you might want to set up tiered locations as follows: Parking Lot A > Ground Floor > East
Parking Lot A > Ground Floor > West
Parking Lot A > Level Two > East
Parking Lot A > Level Two > West

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • 'Admin' level permission on the project's Admin tool.
      OR
    • 'Read-Only' or 'Standard' level permission on the project's Admin tool and the user must be granted the 'Manage Locations' granular permission. See Grant Granular Permissions in a Permission Template.
  • Additional Information:
    • Tip! If you want to add locations to a project in bulk, there are three options.
      • Request a Multi-tiered Locations Import: Choose this method to send a CSV file of your locations to Procore Support or your Procore point of contact to be imported to your project.
      • Perform a Multi-tiered Locations Import: Choose this method if you have the Procore Imports App and want to expedite the process by self-importing your locations to your project.
      • Import Locations Using the Procore Plug-In for Revit®: Choose this method if you have Revit® on your computer and want to export locations from the program. The Procore plug-in for Revit® allows you to quickly and easily import locations from Revit® to your Procore project at any time.

Steps

  1. Navigate to the project's Admin tool.
  2. In the 'Project Settings' menu, click Locations.
  3. Add a location as follows:
    • To add the first tier, click +Add 1st Tier. Then type a name for the location (e.g., Parking Lot A) and click the checkmark or press ENTER (Note: If you make a mistake, you can alternatively click the RED 'x' to remove your entry). 
    • To add a second tier, click +Add 2nd Tier. Then type a name for the sub-location (e.g., Level Three). 
    • To add a third tier, click +Add 3rd Tier. Then type a name for the sub-location (e.g., West). 
    • If you want to continue adding sub-locations, click +Add 4th Tier, +Add 5th Tier, and so on. You can create an unlimited number of tiers.
