Assign Resources to Microsoft Project Users


To use the project's Programme tool to assign users from the Project Directory to Microsoft Project resources on tasks on an imported MS Project programme. 


In Microsoft Project, the Gantt Chart view lets project managers assign 'Resources Names' to tasks on a project programme. The 'Resource Names' corresponds to the name of the person who is responsible for completing a project task. 

If your project has integrated Procore's Programme tool to work with one of the supported versions of Microsoft Project, the 'Resource Name' information in your project programme will be uploaded into Procore with any programmed tasks that includes named resources. See Integrate a Microsoft Project Programme Using Procore Drive.

After your Microsoft Project programme is uploaded successfully, you can use the project's Programme tool to update the resources imported with your programme by assigning 'Resources' to specific project users using the Steps below.  

Once the resources in your Microsoft Project programme are assigned to the appropriate Procore users, any programmed task with a 'Resource Name' in Microsoft Project will now have a Procore user name associated with it. This gives the the 'Programme Work Log' in the project's Site Diary tool the ability to display the name of the Procore user who is assigned to complete the work. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' on the project's Programme tool.
      Note: To view or edit information on the Permissions Table page for the Programme tool, 'Admin' permission to the project's Directory tool is also required.


  • Prior to uploading the Microsoft Project Programme, ensure the programme includes resource assignments on the project's tasks. For instructions, see the Help System for your version of Microsoft Project. 
  • Before you can complete the steps below, you must upload a MS Project Programme to the Programme Tool. See Integrate a Microsoft Project Programme Using Procore Drive.
