Create a Custom Project Report

Objective

To add a custom report using Procore's Reports tool.

Background

The Reports tool gives users the ability to create, generate, and export customized reports. When designing a report, its author can include data captured by specific Procore tools, specify the desired column layout, and also define how to group and filter report data. After generating a report, it can also be exported from Procore into Microsoft Excel. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • 'Standard' level permissions on the Project level Reports tool.
      AND
    • One of the following:
      • If your report data will be sourced from a tool in the Construction Financial product line, 'Admin' level permission on the financial tools you are reporting on.
        Important! If your report data will be sourced from the Project level Budget tool, you will also need 'Admin' level permission on the Company level Admin tool. 
      • If your report data will be sourced from the Company Directory, 'Admin' level permission on the Company Directory. 
        Note: If you have  'Admin' level permission on one or more Project Directory tools, you will be able to create Company level Reports using data from all of the Project Directory tools to which you have been granted 'Admin' level access permission. 
      • If your report data will be sourced from a tool in another product line, 'Read-Only' level permission and above level permissions on the tool.

    • Once you've added the desired columns, you have these options:
      • Group report data
        In the Group by list, select one of the items in the drop-down menu to group report data by the specified column (e.g., you may want to group data by the responsible contractor). 
      • Filter your report data
        Click the Add Filter drop-down menu to select what you would like to filter by. Once you've specified a filter, you can add another filter. You can also filter data by date range by selecting a start and end date.
      • Change the column order 
        Use a drag-and-drop operation to place the column into the desired position.
      • Aggregate data
        Click the fx in the column and select one of the following (for numeric values): count, sum, min, max, or average. Once the report is created, you will see the count, sum, min, max, or average of the values at the bottom of the column.  For field types that are not a numeric value, you have the option to aggregate by count.  (Note: You can not aggregate on a tab that has not been grouped.)
  8. To add a new tool to your report, click Add Tab at the top of the report and repeat step 6-7 above. 

  9. When finished configuring your report layout, click Create Report.
