Delete Spec Sections from the Admin Tool


To delete project spec section number and descriptions from the Admin tool.


Instead of the steps below, most Procore customers now use the Project level Specifications tool to manage specs on a project. For details, see Specifications. However, Procore customers do have the capability to manage specifications with the Project level Admin tool, when Specifications is not an active tool on the project. See Add and Remove Tools on a Project. For customers who manage specs in Project Admin, use the steps below to delete a spec section. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' on the project's Admin tool.
  • Additional Information:


  1. Navigate to the project's Admin tool.
  2. Click the Spec Sections sub tab from the list of Project Settings in the right pane.
  3. Mark the tickbox next to each spec section number and description you wish to delete.
