What are custom fields and which Procore tools support them?

Answer

Custom fields are additional fields that can be added and customised in the Company level Admin tool for certain Project level tools in Procore through configurable fieldsets. See What are configurable fieldsets and which Procore tools support them?

This functionality is separate from custom fields that can be created in the project's Meetings, Submittals and RFIs configure settings pages.

When creating a custom field, you must select a field type from the drop-down menu (such as Plain Text, Number, Tickbox, Single Select or Multi Select). You can then mark the custom field as Required, Optional or Hidden to control how it appears on projects. See Create New Custom Fields.

 Tip

Interested in building a custom app or integration using the Procore API? Procore's API endpoints respect the custom fields that you create in the Procore web application. All the tools listed in the table below also support custom fields through the API. To learn more, visit the Procore Developers enter at icon-external-link.png developers.procore.com. We also recommend these resources: icon-external-link.png Working with Configurable Fieldsets and icon-external-link.png List Configurable Field Sets
