How does someone become a 'Follower' of a conversation in Procore?
In BetaThe Conversations tool is currently in beta. For more information, see Getting Started with Procore Conversations and How do I opt in to the beta for Procore Conversations?
When you are a follower of a conversation in Procore, it is shown in the Conversations tool in your account. See Follow or Unfollow a Conversation. There are a few ways that users can become or be made, a follower of a conversation.
Note: You can see who is currently following a conversation by clicking on the followers icon while viewing a conversation.
- Procore automatically adds certain users as followers when a conversation is created, depending on the tool and item. See the table in the List of Automatic Followers by Tool section below.
- Users become followers of a conversation if they are mentioned in a message (using the @ symbol on your keyboard or @mention button). See Mention a User in a Conversation.
- Users with permission to view an item can become a follower by clicking the Follow button for that conversation.
List of automatic followers by tool
ImportantThe list of Followers does not update for changes made to the Assignee, Distribution List, etc. after a conversation is created. If these roles are modified and you would like to add other users as followers, you can mention them in the conversation to automatically make them followers.
