Search for Items Within a Project Using Procore Search


To search for items within a project using Procore Search.


Procore Search provides a single, consistent search experience across tools in a project. Instead of needing to search separately within each tool, you can search for items across an entire project to quickly locate the information you need. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Read Only' level permissions or higher on the project's Home tool. 
      Note: You can only see search results for items that you have permission to view. 
  • Additional Information:


  1. Navigate to the relevant project in Procore. 
  2. Click the Search bar in the Procore header or use the keyboard shortcut CTRL+K (for PCs) or CMD+K (for Macs).
    Note: If you are already in a specific tool, the search bar defaults to searching that tool specifically. See Filter Search Results by Tool below to see how you can add tool filters to broaden your search.
  3. Begin typing your search term in the search bar.
    Relevant results will begin displaying in a list. If your search term appears to be a typo, search results will be shown with a replacement term. However, you can click the link next to 'Search instead for' to run the search with your original term. 
    Typeahead searches (including partial searches) are supported for many tools. See What information is searchable using Procore Search? to view a list of the information you can search for.
