  • Additional Information:
    • Any edits you make at the Company level are automatically reflected on all of your company's existing Procore projects.
  • Limitations:
    • You cannot edit the 'Code' field on a custom segment when it is being used on a project's budget code. 
    • In a flat segment, duplicate entries in the 'Code' field are NOT permitted. 
    • In a tiered segment, duplicate entries in the 'Code' field are NOT permitted when the segment items are children of the same parent segment. 
    • There are no character limits or other limitations on entries in the 'Description' field.

     Note
    For example, let's assume you created a custom segment named 'Phase' with segment items named 'Phase I', 'Phase II', and 'Phase III'  You want to rename the segment 'Stage' and its segment items 'Stage 1, Stage 2, and Stage 3.'
  4. In the 'Segment Item' table, do the following:

    • Code. Type over the existing entry with a unique alphanumeric code for the segment item. Then press the TAB key to move system focus to the 'Description' field. For example, enter: Stage
       Important
      If the custom segment item is being used on a project's budget code, you will NOT be able to change its 'Code' value. 
    • Description. Type of the existing entry with an updated description of the segment item. Then press the TAB key to save the new segment item to the list. A GREEN 'Success' banner appears to confirm that the update was saved. For example, enter: Stage 1, Stage 2, or Stage 3
  5. Repeat the steps above to change other segment items as needed.
