Create a Meeting Template

Objective

To create custom meeting templates to use in the Meetings tool of your company's projects.

Background

If you are your company's Procore Administrator, you can create meeting templates for use on your company's projects in Procore's Project level Meetings tool. Creating Company level Meeting templates are the simplest way to create meeting agendas, as it helps your organization develop common meeting templates that work well for your project teams. It also limits the amount of repetitive data entry for members of your project team, by minimizing the need to completely re-enter a new agenda each week. Once your company's meeting templates are created using the Steps below, project team members can use the project's Meetings tool to Create a Meeting from a Template.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' level permissions on the Company level Admin tool. 
  • Supported Fields:
    You can create meeting templates that include the following fields:
    • Meeting Name (This field is required)
    • Overview
    • Attachments
    • Private Meeting
    • Meeting Categories
