Configure Job Titles for Workforce Planning

Objective

To create job titles for Workforce Planning.

Background

Job titles help you organise your workforce. Depending on the task you are performing, you can find and filter people by job title. You can also use job titles to assign people to project roles for specific projects.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions
  • Job titles are ordered in filters in the same order that they appear in 'Job Title Settings'.
    Note: Procore recommends arranging the order to reflect your levels of seniority or chain of command.
 Tip
  • Set up your job titles as you would when building a labour plan. Job titles should be granular enough that you can easily assign the correct resource, but not so granular to have job titles that you never request.
  • You can add an hourly rate to a job title which allows you to manage cost using job titles instead of individual people.
