Upload a Project Schedule File to Procore's Web Application

Objective

To upload a schedule file in the Procore web application using the project's Schedule tool.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions: 
    • 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Schedule tool.
  • Additional Information:
    • If you are uploading an updated project schedule using the same file that was previously uploaded to the project's Schedule tool in Procore, the information in the Schedule Change Request History section of the Configure Settings will NOT be cleared. 
    • Project schedules cannot be edited in Procore. The only field that can be edited within Procore is the 'Percent Complete' field from a mobile device, see How do I allow users to update the 'Percent Complete' field in the Schedule tool?'. Project schedules must always be updated in the third-party software application (e.g., Microsoft Project, Asta Powerproject, etc.) and then uploaded into Procore again. 
    • If you are using a file based schedule software like Microsoft Project or Asta, and have a Windows computer, Procore recommends that you update your schedule through Procore Drive. See Integrate a Microsoft Project Schedule using Procore Drive.
      Note: Any file based scheduling software will work with Procore Drive!
    • If you are using Primavera P6 and have a Windows computer, Procore recommends that you update your schedule through Procore Drive. See Integrate a Primavera P6 Schedule using Procore Drive.

    The file types listed below can be uploaded directly:

    • MPP (Microsoft Project)       
    • MPX (Microsoft Project, SureTrak)        
    • XER (Primavera P6, Primavera Contractor)

    • XML (Formatted for Microsoft Project, e.g. Smartsheet, OpenProject)         
    • XML (Primavera PMXML)        
    • PPX (Phoenix Project Manager)         
    • FTS (FastTrack Schedule)         
    • POD (ProjectLibre)

  1. Select File Upload Via Procore Documents.
  2. In the Schedule Filename Pattern, enter the filename pattern you would like to have automatically uploaded to the Schedule tool. For example, if you prefix your schedule file with the date (e.g. 07-26-17_Construction Schedule.mpp), you can use the asterisk (*) symbol to denote that piece of the filename that will change. For example, you would enter*_Construction Schedule.mpp into the Schedule Filename Pattern field.
    • ImportantEnter the exact or partial name of your schedule file in the "Schedule Filename Pattern" field. For example, you would enter "Construction Schedule.mpp" into this field. Uploaded files into documents matching this exact filename pattern will be automatically updated into the Schedule tool.
    • Tip! When multiple users are accessing the schedule file and you're making changes to the file from the Documents tool, it is recommended that you check out the file so the team members don't overwrite your schedule changes as you're uploading.
