To enable the features for the 'Procore Labor Productivity Cost' view in the Budget, Change Events,  and Change Orders tool.  


Production quantities are a measurable amount of work on a construction project. For example, cubic yards of concrete, number of light fixtures, or linear feet of piping. In Procore, there are two types of production quantities:

  • Budgeted production quantities refers to the measurable amount a team plans to install on a project.
  • Installed production quantities refers to the actual amount installed on a project by a point in time.
If Procore's icon-external-link.png Field Productivity tools under 'Workforce Management' are enabled on your company's Procore account, the Work Breakdown Structure's custom segment objects and features are not yet supported. To learn more, see Are custom segments compatible with Procore's Field Productivity tools?
