Delete Pending or Unpublished Drawings


To prevent an uploaded drawing from being added to a project's drawing set. 


If you upload a number of drawings at one time, you may not want to publish some of the drawings. For example, when you upload a single PDF of all the drawings, Procore automatically splits up the PDF into single drawing sheets. In such cases, you may want to remove certain drawings so they are not published to the drawing set.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    •  'Admin' on the project's Drawings tool.
  • Additional Information:
    • If you delete a pending drawing, it will not be published. However, you can upload again if you want to add it to a drawing set at a later time.
