Add Custom Segments to the Project Budget Code Structure

Objective

To add new Company level custom segments to your Project level budget code structure

Background

When your company's Procore Administrator adds new custom segments to your Company level WBS, it is automatically added to your existing project's 'Available Segments' list. These new Company level segments are greyed out and unavailable, to show have not been added to the project's budget code structure. If you want to add that new Company level custom segment to your project, it can be added both before or after you've created budget codes on the project. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' level permissions on the Project level Admin tool. 
  • Additional Information:
    • When a new segment is added to the Company level WBS, Procore adds it to the 'Available Segments' list. 
    • To create a project budget code using that segment, you must add it to your project's budget code structure. 
    • You can add a Company level segment to your project's budget code at any time, before or after you've created budget codes on the project.

 Tip
Did you know you can customise the budget code descriptions for your project? Customization is useful when your team wants to create two or more descriptions for a single budget code. Customization can also improve the readability of your codes on financial line items for your end users.
