Add the Instructions Tool to a Project


To add the Instructions tool to a Procore project.


Using the project's Instructions tool, you can create instructions that include attachments from other Procore tools (for example, Documents, Drawings, Photos, and more). You can also upload files from your computer to attach them to an instruction. Once your instruction is created, you can then issue it your recipients--which are typically one or more subcontractors on the project. All of this information is captured and stored in your Procore project in a log that resides in the Instructions tool. This historical record is also available in Procore for auditing purposes.

    • 'Admin' permission on the project's Admin tool.
  • Additional Information:
    • This tool has been developed specifically for Procore clients in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. 


  • The Instructions must be licensed and available for your account.
