Apply the View, Snapshot, Group, and Filter Options on a Budget View

Objective

To apply the view, snapshot, group, and filter options on a budget view and how to export a budget view to CSV or PDF. 

Background

The Budget tool lets you create flexible, budget views that you can apply across multiple projects. It also provides you with a variety of filtering and grouping options for viewing your budget data. You'll also discover additional options for viewing budget data in full-screen mode, clicking hyperlinks to drill-down into your budget's detail, and the ability to export your budget view data to a Comma Separated Values (CSV) or Portable Document Format (PDF) file. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Read Only' level permissions or higher on the project's Budget tool.
  • Additional Information:
    • The 'Sub Job' filter always appears in the Group menu, even if sub jobs are disabled in Procore. To enable sub jobs, see Enable Sub Jobs for WBS.
    • The 'Division' option in the Group and Filter menu that corresponded to the CSI MasterFormat in Procore's legacy experience is now named 'Cost Code Tier 1'. Each Cost Code Tier menu option corresponds to a tier in your company's or project's 'Cost Code' segment, which is a tiered segment in Procore's Work Breakdown Structure.

Steps

  1. Navigate to the project's Budget tool.
  2. Select a budget view from the View list. For a view to appear in this list, your Procore Administrator must complete the steps to Assign a Budget View to a Project.
