Download a Previous Version of a File


To view and download file versions from a file's Version Log


When a user uploads a new version of a file to the Documents tool, the updated version of the file always overwrites the older version. Should you need to view an earlier version of a file, you can view and download each version by accessing the file's Version Log.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • 'Read-only' and higher on the Documents tool.
    • You must have access permission to view the file. For example, the file must be unlocked (i.e., not marked Private) or, if the file is marked Locked, you must be a member of the file's Allow Access list. See Change Permission Settings on a Folder/File.
  • Additional Information:
    • Keep the following in mind when working with the Documents tool:

      • The tasks that you can perform are determined by the permission level that you've been granted for each tool. See What are the default permission levels in Procore? You may not always be assigned the same permission level on both your company's and a project's Documents tool. 
      • Access permissions are typically set by your company's Procore Administrator (or another contact at your organization who has been delegated the authority to administer a specific project and/or project tool).
    • When you download a file, its is recorded in the 'Download Log' for the file or folder. 


  1. Navigate to the Documents tool. 
    This reveals the Documents page. 
  2. In the tree view, navigate and highlight the desired file. 
    This reveals the selected file's details in the center pane.
  3. In the file details, scroll to and expand the Version Log
