To change the status of an observation so that its creator knows that the work has been completed and is ready for review.


Once you have been assigned an observation, you will get an email containing all relevant details you will need to complete the work associated with resolving the issue. Once you have completed the work, you will log into Procore to change the status to 'Ready for Review,' telling the creator that they can now review the completed work. 

Things to Consider


When the ball is in your court on a observation, you will get an email notifying that you are required to respond. 

  1. From the email, click Link: View in Procore. 
    Note: You can also respond to an observation in Procore by navigating to the Observations tool and clicking View next to the Observation to which you want to respond.

  2. Once the observation is open Procore, respond to the item by clicking Change Status to notify the observation's creator that the work is ready for review. Additionally, you can Add a Comment without changing the status to provide or request additional details.
