    • General Information
      If custom fields for drawings have been added to the project, you may see additional fields in this section. Any information filled in for these custom fields will be specific to the revision, meaning any changes will not appear on other revisions for the drawing. See What are custom fields and which Procore tools support them?
      • Drawing No.: Edit the drawing number to coincide with your records.
        Note: Any specified drawing number must be unique. You will not be allowed to create a duplicate drawing number.
      • Drawing Title: Edit the drawing's title.
      • Discipline: Change the discipline of the drawing to organise it into a different category on the Drawing Log page. You can also double-click the field to choose from a list of your default and custom disciplines.
      • Obsolete: Mark this checkbox if you want to mark your drawing as obsolete.
        Note: This action will remove it from the current drawing set, but will not delete it. For more information on obsolete drawings, see Mark Drawings as Obsolete.
    • Versions
      • Revision: Edit the drawing's revision number or letter.
        Note: Procore will automatically number the revision as the next number in the sequence, but you can also change it to a letter.
      • Drawing Set: Edit the drawing's set. This will move the drawing into the set in the set view. Additionally, you can edit the drawing set's information such as its date and title. For more information, see Configure Advanced Settings: Drawings.
      • Drawing Date: Edit the date the drawing was created as defined on the drawing itself.
      • Received Date: Edit the date you received the drawing.
      • Status: You cannot change the drawing's status from this page. You can publish drawings from the set view. See Publish Drawings. You cannot unpublish drawings once they are published
  5. To save changes made to fields in the 'General Information' section, click Update.
    Changes made to fields in the 'Versions' section are automatically saved when clicking out of the field.

    Note: If you moved drawings to another area, the following occurs:
    • A banner appears at the top of the page confirming that the drawings were moved.
      If one or more drawings has the same drawing number as a drawing in the existing area, you are prompted to confirm the drawings on the review page.
    • Email notifications are sent in the following scenarios:
      • If more than 50 drawings are being moved at one time, you will receive an email when the drawing move is complete. 
      • If drawings were unable to be moved, you will receive an email with one or more error messages.
