Answer

What is a 'Distribution Group'?

Once created, end users with permissions to create items in specific Procore tools can add available distribution groups to any To, Cc, Distribution, Default Distribution, Distribution List, File Tracking,  field in the Company and/or Project level tools that support this feature. For example, you might create distribution groups named 'Accountants', 'Foreman/Site Managers', or 'Project Managers' to keep stakeholders informed of tool-specific events (i.e., approvals, distribution of meeting minutes and more). 

In the example below, the end user selects the 'NBI Project Managers' distribution group by name to add the individual members of that group to the RFI's distribution list

What is a 'Distribution List'?

In the example below, the end user adds individuals from the Project Directory to an RFIs distribution list. Users also have the option to add distribution groups to the list.
