 Early Access
The following documents describe functionality that is currently not available in all accounts. Please contact your Procore Account Manager for more information.

Objective

To edit a configurable fieldset for a correspondence type in the Correspondence tool.

Background

configurable fieldset is a group of fields in certain Procore tools that can be set to optional, required, or hidden, depending on the needs of your company. This allows for better control over data entry when users create and edit items in Procore projects. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' on the Company level Admin tool. 
  • Additional Information:
    • By default, configurable fieldsets are only applied to new projects. However, you can apply fieldsets to specific projects.
    • Configurable fieldsets applied to projects will be reflected on both Procore’s web and mobile applications.
    • If you want to configure fieldsets for specific tools, see What are configurable fieldsets and which Procore tools support them?
