Create a Snag List Item (Android)

Also available on    

Objective

To create a snag list item using the Procore app on an Android mobile device. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • 'Standard' or 'Admin' on the project's Snag List tool.
      Note: While 'Standard' level users can create snag list items, they cannot assign a snag list item unless that have been granted special permission to act as the Snag Item Manager. 
      • 'Admin' level users have complete control of snag list items and can edit and update any assignee response.
      • 'Standard' level users can view all responses, but can only update their response if they are listed as an assignee on the snag list item.
        Note: 'Standard' level users can only list  'Admin' level users as the Assignee on a snag list item.
      • 'Read-only' level users cannot be assigned a snag list item.
  • Additional Information:
    • Snag list items can be assigned to multiple persons.
    • You will only be able to assign a snag list item to a user that exists in the project's directory. If an assignee is missing from the list, he/she must first be added to the project directory before the user can become a selectable option in the dropdown picker.
    • Once an initial notification has been sent, selected Assignees will receive daily notifications of overdue items via email; email notifications will end after 45 days. 
    • Snag list item types cannot be created when creating a snag list item. Types must be created by an 'Admin' user in the tool's configuration settings before a type can be selected when creating a new snag list item. See Configure Advanced Settings: Snag List.
  • This action can be performed in offline mode (i.e. when an active network connection is not available on your mobile device). Tasks performed in offline mode will be synced with Procore once a network connection has been reestablished. 

Steps

  1. Navigate to the Snag List tool using the Procore app on an Android mobile device.
  2. Tap the Create New icon-create-new-android.png icon. 
  3. Select from the list of templates or tap +Create Punch Without a Template to create a new snag list item.
  4. Tap the following fields to enter the appropriate information:
    • Camera: Take and add a new photo to the snag list item.
    • Attachments: Choose one of the following options:
      • File from device: Choose an existing file from your device. 
      • Photo from device: Choose an existing photo from your device's library.
      • Photo from Procore: Choose an existing photo from your project's Photos tool.
    • Title: If not using a template, provide a descriptive title for the new item. The snag list item's title is displayed as the title in the list view.
    • Snag Manager: Select a Snag Manager who will oversee the item throughout its entire lifecycle.
       Note: If no Snag Manager is selected, Procore will automatically list the item's Creator as the Snag Manager.
    • Assignee: If the template doesn't have a default assignee or if you aren't using a template, select the subcontractor or related contact from your directory to whom you want to assign the item. Assignees will need to have 'Admin' or 'Standard' level permissions to see the Snag List item and receive the email notification. 
      Note: Users with 'Standard' permission on the Snag List tool will only be able to assign 'Admin' to the item.
    • Location: Tap to select a specific location.
    • Final Approver: Select a Final Approver who will have the authority to close the item.
    • Due Date: Select a date from the calendar for the snag list item to be due.
      Note: The 'Due Date' field is automatically populated based on the default number of days specified on the Snag List tool's Configure Settings page. See Configure Advanced Settings: Snag List. The due date also respects which days are set as 'working days' for the project. See Set Project Working Days.
    • Status: By default, the status of the new item is set to 'Open'. To close the item, tap the field to change its status to 'Closed'.
    • Trade: Tap the Trade field to choose from trades added to the project. See Add or Delete Trades.
    • Type: Tap the Type field to choose from types added to the project. To add snag list item types, see Configure Advanced Settings: Snag List.
    • Cost Code: Tap to select an appropriate cost code associated with the new item.
  5. Tap Save and Finish to save your changes and return to the list page or tap Save & New to save your changes and immediately create another Snag List item.
