Create a Custom Time Type


To add a custom time type for use with timecard entries.


By default, Procore includes several default pay types (i.e., Regular Time, Overtime and so on) for use on a timecard entry (see Create a Timecard Entry or Create a Timesheet). If your organisation utilises additional pay types, you can create custom time types to then select from in the Time Types drop-down list. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' level permissions on the company's Timecard tool.
  • Default Time Types:
    • Regular Time
    • Double Time
    • Exempt
    • Holiday
    • Overtime
    • PTO
    • Salary
    • Holiday


  • Your company's Procore Administrator must request to enable the Company level Timecard tool in Procore.


  1. Navigate to the company's Timecard tool.
  2. Click the Configure Settings icons-settings-gear.png icon. 
  3. Scroll to the 'Time Types' section.

  4. Do the following:
    • Type: Enter a new time type in the box provided. 
    • Abbreviation: Enter an abbreviation for the time type in the box provided. 
    • Available? Keep the checkbox marked if you would like the pay type to appear in the "Time Type" drop-down menu when entering a timecard entry. 
  5. Click Add.
    This adds the new time type to the list. Your new time type(s) are now available for use in the "Time Type" drop-down list in the Timecard (see Create a Timecard Entry) and/or Timesheets (see Create a Timesheet) tools.
