The following table highlights which user permissions are required to perform the described user action.
: Denotes an action supported in Procore's iOS and/or Android mobile application.
+ : Indicates that one or more granular permissions are available for the task. See the relevant tutorial or Grant Granular Permissions in a Project Permissions Template for more information.
1 Company level Observation Types are managed at the Company level Admin tool. See Permissions.
2 When a 'Standard' user is the creator of an observation line item, the user will have the ability to change the status, close, and leave a comment. When a 'Standard' user is the assignee, the user can change the status to Initiated or Ready for Review. When a 'Standard' user is not the assignee on an observation, that user can view the activity stream and leave a comment. However, that user cannot view or change the status options.
3 'Standard' users can only assign observations to an 'Admin' user unless they have been granted the granular permission 'Can Assign Standard Users to Observations', which allows them to assign observations to another 'Standard' user.
4 'Standard' users can edit observations they have created.
5 'Read only' users can view observations that are not marked private. 'Read only' users can view private observations if included on the distribution list.
6 'Standard' users can view observations if they created the item or if the item is not marked private. 'Standard' users can view private observations if they created the item, set as the assignee, or are on the distribution list.
7 'Standard' users will also need 'Standard' permission to the Inspections tool.
8 'Read Only' and 'Standard' users with the granular permission to 'Update Status and Comment on Observations Assigned to Users within Same Company' can only update the status to 'Ready for Review'.
