Disable the Procore Change Reason Pop-up in MS Project


To disable the Procore Add-in on MS Project that prompts you to state a change reason whenever a change is made.


When you sync an MS Project programme to Procore Drive, any changes you make in MS Project will automatically be synced to Procore Drive and Procore upon clicking Save. By default, Procore will ask you for a change reason when changes are made so you and your team can keep track of why changes to the programme were made, by whom and when. If you would like to disable this prompting by Procore, you can disable the Add-in in MS Project. However, the changes to the programme will still be synced.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Programme tool; access to the project's MS Project programme that is synced to Procore.
  • Additional Information:
    • Important! Keep the Procore add-in online to view programme changes in the Programme Changes report in the Reports tool. The report will not gather data unless a user enters information into this pop-up.
    • Uninstalling the Procore add-in from MS Project will require a full uninstall and reinstall of Procore Drive if you want to reinstall the add-in.


You can either disable it temporarily or uninstall it permanently.

To disable the Add-in temporarily
  1. Open MS Project on your computer.
  2. If it is available, click the Add-ins tab.
    Note: If this feature is not available, skip to here.

  3. Click the Online button above the word "Procore".
    Note: This will disable the comment popup add-in until you enable it again by turning it to online again.
