Objective

To enable weather delay alerts for a person's Procore user account using the Project level Directory tool. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • To configure a weather delay alert for a project user, 'Admin' level permission on the project's Directory tool.
  • Requirements:
    • For alerts settings to take effect:
    • For a person to receive alerts:
      • The user must have a valid email address recorded in the Project Directory. See Steps below. 
      • The user must have a valid cellular telephone number recorded in the Project Directory. See Steps below. 
    • To trigger a weather delay alert:
      A weather delay must be added to the Weather Log in the Project level Daily Log tool. For instructions, see: Add Weather Log Entries (Android)Add Weather Log Entries (iOS), and Add Observed Weather Log Entries.
  • Additional Information:
    When a user triggers a weather delay alert in Daily Log tool, the system sends alert messages as follows:
    • For weather delay alerts by phone, the system dials the user's telephone number. Then, the following occurs:
      • If the user answers the call, a robotic voice alerts the user of the weather delay and identifies the project by name.
      • If the user declines the call, the system alerts the user of the weather delay by leaving a voice mail message.
      • If the user misses the call, the system alerts the user of the weather delay by leaving a voice mail message.
    • For weather delay alerts by email, the system sends an email message to the address on the user's record.
      Note: The system does NOT send alerts to users when a weather delay is removed or canceled from the Daily Log tool.
