Create a Co-ordination Issue in the Model Viewer


To create a co-ordination issue from the side panel of the model viewer.


When you notice a co-ordination issue while viewing a model in Procore, you can create an issue directly from the Issues side panel without needing to navigate to the Co-ordination Issues tool. Your current view of the model is automatically added as a snapshot, and the new co-ordination issue can be viewed and opened from the side panel or Co-ordination Issues tool.
