Update General Project Information

Objective

To add or edit general project information using the project's Admin tool. 

Things to Consider

Steps

  1. Navigate to the project's Admin tool.
  2. Click the General page under Project Settings.
  3. Update project information in the following sections as appropriate. 
  4. Click Update to save the changes.
Project Information
  • Name*: Enter an updated name for the project if necessary.

  • Estimated Value: This represents the estimated value of the project. Enter or update the value if necessary.

  • Estimated Start Date: This represents the date the project will start and also will be used to calculate construction volume. Select a new date if necessary.

  • Estimated End Date: This represents the date the project will end and also will be used to calculate construction volume. Select a new date if necessary.

  • Actual Start Date: This is the actual date that the project started and is displayed on the Portfolio page. If a schedule has been uploaded to the project's Schedule tool, this field will inherit the start date value from the uploaded schedule. See Upload a Project Schedule File to Procore's Web Application. If no schedule has been uploaded, it will inherit the value that is entered in the 'Estimated Start Date' field. If the 'Estimated Start Date' field is blank, it will inherit the date that the project was created. 
    Note: This date is automatically filled in with the date that the project was created. However, it can be changed manually. 

  • Projected Finish Date: This is the actual date that the project finished and also will be displayed on the Portfolio page. If a schedule has been uploaded to the project's Schedule tool, this field will inherit the last schedule task from the uploaded schedule. If no schedule has been uploaded, it will inherit the value from the ‘Estimated End Date’ field. If there is no ‘Estimated End Date’, then nothing will display here unless manually entered.

  • Project Stage: This represents the stage your project is currently in. Certain stages enable certain actions in Procore (e.g. Bidding in the Bidding stage). See Add Custom Project Stages to Your Company to add custom stages.
    Note: Your company’s contract with Procore might allow an unlimited number of projects in a 'Bidding' stage that are not counted towards your project cap. If your project cap has been reached, you will not be able to move any of your projects out of the bidding stage until you set an active project to inactive. See Why can't I create or activate Procore projects? Please contact your Procore point of contact for information on increases to the project cap.

  • Project Type: This represents the type of project. Project types can be added in the Company level Admin tool. See Create Custom Project Types. Select a project type from the drop-down menu.

  • Project Number: Enter or update the project number for your project.

  • Square Feet: Enter or update the total number square feet of your project. This will only be reflected here for informational purposes.

  • Store Number: Enter or update a store number if applicable.

  • Description: Enter or update the description of your project. 

  • Active/Inactive: Click the toggle to the ON  position to set the project to Active, or click the toggle to the OFF  position to set the project to Inactive.

  • Logo: Upload or remove a project logo. The project logo will display in the upper-left corner of the project navigation bar as well as in PDF exports, reports, and project emails.
    Note: The file must be a JPG, PNG, or GIF file with dimensions of 200 x 70 pixels. The max file size is 3MB.

  • Photo: Upload or remove a project photo. The project photo can help identify your project on the Portfolio and Home pages.
    Note: The file must be a JPG, PNG, or GIF file with dimensions of 200 x 100 pixels. The max file size is 3MB.

Project Location
  • Country: Select the country for the project.

  • Timezone: Select the time zone for the project. This time zone will determine time stamps on items throughout the project.

  • Address: Enter the address of the project's job site.
    Note: If your project has a different physical and post address, it is recommended that you enter the physical address of the job site. This ensures that the system Latitude/Longitude values are accurately calculated to the job site, which will improve the accuracy of the 'Project Weather' forecast on the Project Home page and Weather Log information in the Daily Log tool. 

  • City: Enter the city for the project.

  • State: Select the state for the project.

  • ZIP: Enter the ZIP code for the project. You can enter the 5-digit  'Zip Code' format (e.g. 93013)  or 'Zip Code + 4' format (e.g. 93013-2931).

  • County: The county is automatically filled out based on the address. 
    Note: If the county determined is not accurate (which can happen if your project is located on or near a designated county line, or when the address is a remote location), you can enter the correct county manually.

  • Latitude/Longitude: If you want weather to be populated based on location coordinates, instead of the project address, enter the exact GPS coordinates of your job site. For more information, see Which weather providers are supported by Procore? and How do I determine the latitude/longitude values of an address?

  • Phone: Enter the phone number of the primary contact phone number for the job site. 

  • Fax: Enter the fax number to receive faxes for the project.

  • Parent Job: Select the name of the parent project in Procore from the list.
    Note: In Procore, a parent job is a Procore project that has been designated as the 'parent' project for one or more related project(s) in Procore's Portfolio tool. To learn more, see What's the difference between a job, a parent job, and a sub job?
