Sync and Download Drawings (Android)

Objective

To sync and download drawings on an Android mobile device.

Background

The Drawings Sync feature allows users to download the most recent drawings and revisions so that they can access and store the latest building information on their Android mobile device. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions: 'Read only' and above permissions on the Drawings tool.
  • You can test which drawings have been downloaded to your device already by putting your device in Airplane Mode, navigating to the Procore application, selecting Drawings from the tool list, and viewing all downloaded drawings. 
  • If you or another team member marks up a drawing while offline, or someone uploads a new version, you will need to re-sync the changes while on an internet or network connection in order to view the most current information.

Steps

  1. Navigate to the project's Drawings tool on an Android mobile device.
