What are App Configurations and how do I work with them?

Background

Apps you install in Procore companies are managed using App configurations. This article defines what an App configuration is and how Procore company administrators and project users can create and manage them.

App Configurations Explained

Apps you install in a Procore company must first be configured in order for Procore project users to access the extended functionality those Apps provide. An App can either be configured at the company level for access by users in all active and future projects, or at the project level with customized project-specific settings. App developers may define custom properties, or configuration fields, that can be used to tailor the operation and behavior of an App to the specific needs of a given company or project. For example, a project site camera App might require a camera ID number as a required App configurable field in order to associate the proper image feed with a particular project. Each App configuration includes a user-defined title along with values for any required or optional configuration fields as defined by the App developer.

After an App is installed, company administrators use the Company Admin tool to create an App configuration that applies either globally to the entire company, or to one or more projects specifically. Global App configurations apply the same settings to all active and future projects in a company. Project level App configurations apply settings to individual projects or to multiple projects within a company.

Creating App Configurations

 Important!
Note that project users, regardless of their permissions, are allowed to create project level App configurations, but are not allowed to edit or delete them. As a company administrator, you can elect to prevent all project users from configuring Apps in projects. Please reach out to your Procore Customer Success Manager to enable this setting.
