Import Coordination Issues from a BCF File


To import issues from a BCF file to the Coordination Issues tool.


If you have BCF files containing coordination issues, you can import them all at once to the Coordination Issues tool so you don't have to create them manually.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Standard' or 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Coordination Issues tool.


  • You must have a BCF file (.bcf) on your computer that you want to import issues from.


  1. Navigate to the project's Coordination Issues tool on
  2. At the top of the page, click Import.
  3. Select the BCF file from your computer that you want to import issues from.
  4. If the project uses the Models tool, you can choose to associate the issues with a specific model. Otherwise, click Skip.
    Note: Associating issues with a model will allow you to quickly open the issue in Procore's model viewer directly from a coordination issue (explained further in Step 6).
  5. An 'Import in Progress' banner shows at the top of the page, and you'll receive an email when all issues have finished importing.
  6. To view the issues that were created from the import, add the Created From filter to the list and select the BCF file that you imported. See Search for and Filter Coordination Issues.
    • Click on an issue to view its details in the side panel. 
    • If an issue was associated with a model during import, you can click View on the image to open the issue in Procore's model viewer. ci-view-imported-bcf.png
