Create a Project Level Punch Item Template


To create punch item templates at the Project level.


If you're a Punch List tool Admin, you may find it useful to add custom punch item templates. Quick Punch allows Procore users to create a library of common punch items which can be organized into categories. Default trades and assignees can be assigned to these common punch items. When a Procore user creates a new punch item from a mobile device, they can select one of their templates which will auto-fill fields on the new punch item with default information from the template. Users can then add or edit information as needed, save the new punch item, and move on. This allows our users to select common punch items from their library and create new punch items with the minimum number of actions required, with the biggest action eliminated being typing. 

In order to reduce the barrier to entry and accelerate adoption, Procore has provided a default library of common punch items for all companies.  This default library can be modified by an Admin-level user to meet the specific needs of their company.
