New Company Level Granular Permissions for Viewing and Managing Directory Information (7/12/2020)
Procore has added new granular permissions to allow users with 'Read Only' and 'Standard' level permissions on the Company level Directory tool to view and manage user and company records.

New PDF Summary of Company Permissions Templates (4/12/2020)
