Upload Files into a Folder


To upload a document to a folder in the Documents tool.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission: 'Standard' or 'Admin' on the Documents tool.
    • These permission levels apply to both the company's and project's Documents tool.
      (Note: For example, you can have 'Read-only' level permissions on the company's Documents tool and 'Admin' level permissions on a project's Documents tool. Permission levels will dictate which actions can be performed at either the Company and/or Project level.)
  • Duplicate file types are not accepted. See Upload a New Version of a File.
  • To select multiple files or folders at time, you must use the 'Control', 'Command', or 'Shift' key.
    • For Windows users - Hold down the 'Control' key and select the files and or folders you wish to download.
    • For Mac users - Hold down the 'Command' key and select the files and/or folders you wish to download.
    • For both Mac and Windows users - To select a series of consecutive documents select and hold down the 'Shift' key on the first item and then select the last item in the range.

    Note: You will need to wait for the file to load into the browser before you can click Upload.

Upload a Document Using your Email

  1. Send an email to your project's email address with document(s) attached. (Note: The address can be found by choosing Import Options on the right-hand sidebar.)
  2. Attached files will be placed in the 'Emailed Documents' folder in your file tree in Procore.
