    1. Select the desired segments from the drop-down lists. You have these options: 
       Note
      The segments and items that you can select on your Procore project are unique to your project's specific WBS. Contact your company's Procore Administrator if you require assistance with creating a budget code for your environment. 
      • Segments. Depending your project's WBS, you will have between two (2) or up to thirteen (13) 'Segment' drop-down lists. Select the segment items from each drop-down list to define your budget code. 
      • Description. Under the 'Description' section choose one (1) of these option buttons:
        • Concatenated. Select this option button to use Procore's default concatenation method for your budget code. This method concatenates the description for each segment item using a period (.) as a separator. 
        • Custom. Select this option button if you want to define a custom description. This is useful if you have numerous segments and want to create custom descriptions to improve readability in your environment.
