Procore

Change a Project's Status to Active or Inactive

Objective

To change a project's status using the Project level Admin tool.

Background

A Procore project in your company's Procore account can be placed in one (1) of two (2) statuses:

  • Active. Indicates the project is in-progress and in an active state. Project actions for administrators and end users are available. This is the default state of a new Procore project. 
  • Inactive. Indicates the project is NOT active. Use this status to indicate that work on the project has been temporarily or permanently suspended.  Inactive projects have the following properties:
    • Inactive projects are not visible by default in the company's Portfolio tool, but they can still be viewed. See View Inactive Projects in the Company Portfolio.
    • Automatic overdue email notifications will no longer be sent for the following tools: Observations, Punch List, RFIs, Submittals, and Tasks.
    • The inactive project will not appear as an option in the Company Reports tool's custom reports, or as an option to extract data from in the Procore Extracts application (i.e. the project will need to be set back to 'Active').
    • Overdue notifications will still be sent (if applicable) for the following: RFQs, Workflows, and Custom Tools.
    • Automated report emails will still generated
    • Users in the project directory will still be able to access the project through the Portfolio.
    • Users in the project directory will still be able to create items with the appropriate permission to do so.
    • Items/tags/filters in that project will still prevent deletion at the company level (for example, Trades or Stages).
    • Fieldsets can still be applied.
    • Users with the appropriate permissions to the project's Procore tools can still make changes to inactive projects. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' on the project's Admin tool.
  • Additional Information:
    • When you create a project in Procore (see Create a New Project), the system places it in the 'Active' status by default.
    • When a project is inactive:
      • Automatic overdue email notifications will no longer be sent for the following tools: Observations, Punch List, RFIs, Submittals, and Tasks.
      • Overdue notifications will still be sent (if applicable) for the following: RFQs, Workflows, and Custom Tools. 
      • The inactive project will not appear as an option in the Company Reports tool's custom reports, or as an option to extract data from in the Procore Extracts application (i.e. the project will need to be set back to 'Active'). 
    • If you are unable to set the project to Inactive, see Why can't I create or activate Procore projects?
