About Custom Fields

custom field is a page element that can be added to a supported Procore tool to allow your end users to enter additional information to capture business-specific information. While most of your company's construction management tasks can be performed using the standard fields that come with a Procore tool, some organisations have specific information requirements that require the addition of custom fields.


Some examples showing how your company can work with the Custom Solutions Team to add custom fields to a Procore tool or a custom tool:

  • A calendar control to capture a project due date. 
  • A checkbox to indicate whether or not a condition is present or absent. 
  • A drop-down menu to select the name of a single person. 
  • A drop-down menu to select multiple team members.  
  • A text box to capture the duration (in a number of days) for a document review. 

Available Field Options & Types 

The following table describes the field, field type and function of each option that are supported by the Custom Solutions Team when adding custom fields to Procore tools.

  • Functionality extending beyond the field options and types listed below cannot be added at this time. This includes the ability to add tabular data using a line item generator.
  • To learn about other limitations related to custom fields, see What are the limitations of custom fields?

1 For best results, we recommend that clients request custom selectors (e.g., drop-down menus), instead of custom radio buttons. This preserves screen space when there are more than two (2) options to select from. It also allows you to add selections to the menu in future requests.

Supported Procore Tools

Currently, the Custom Solutions Team can work with you to add custom fields and create custom forms in the Procore tools listed below. These fields can also be added to custom tools built by the Custom Solutions Team. See Get Started with Custom Tools.

  • Customizations are supported only on individual items. An item is an individual object created by an end user with a Procore tool. Examples of items are a subcontract, tender package, change event, commitment variation, defect item, RFI and so on. 
  • Customizations are NOT supported on list pages or reports. A list page is a primary area for displaying a Procore tool's data and is reserved for performing actions on specified records, such as editing and viewing forms. In Procore, an example of a list page includes these tabs: ItemsList, and Recycle Bin.  
Alphabetical List of Tools Custom Fields can be added to these items: Custom Forms can be created for these items:
