 Coming Soon

The Documents tool is being redesigned with a new look. Please refer to this article for details on the changes: Documents: Visual Redesign of the Documents Tool.


To manage who tracks your folders or files in the Documents tool.


Users can track changes to files and folders in the Documents tool. In addition, users with the required permission can manage members for the tracking list using the Steps below. Users on a tracking list will receive an automated digest email approximately one (1) hour after a file is added, updated, or deleted.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • 'Admin' on the Documents tool.
  • 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).
