Import Viewpoints to the Co-Ordination Issues Tool


To import viewpoints from Navisworks® to the Co-ordination Issues tool using the Procore plugin.


Importing viewpoints from Navisworks® to Procore helps your teams transition from using a viewpoints workflow to using the Procore Co-ordination Issues tool and plugin. Imported viewpoints will be created as issues in the Co-ordination Issues tool so they can be tracked and managed in Procore.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Co-ordination Issues tool.
  • Additional Information:
    • Information from a viewpoint is carried over to the issue created from the import:
      • The title of the viewpoint becomes the Title of the coordination issue.
      • Any comments on the viewpoint are carried over to the Description field of the issue.
      • Any markups on the viewpoint, excluding Cloud markups, are also included on the issue.
    • To prevent duplication or redundant issues from being imported, a folder that has already been imported from through the plugin will not be available as an option to select for another import.
