Create a Custom Project Report


To add a custom report using Procore's Reports tool.


The Reports tool gives users the ability to create, generate and export customised reports. When designing a report, its author can include data captured by specific Procore tools, specify the desired column layout and also define how to group and filter report data. After generating a report, it can also be exported from Procore into Microsoft Excel.
