Overwrite Program

Overwrite Current Program with New Program

Project programs cannot be edited in Procore. They must always be updated in the third-party software program (e.g., Microsoft Project, Asta PowerPoint, etc.) and then uploaded into Procore again. 

Important! Uploading a project program update overwrites the existing program and permanently removes the previous program's Change History from the system. 

  1. Click Overwrite Program in the right pane. 
  2. Under the Overwrite Current Program with New Program area, complete the following:
    • Click the Choose File button. 
    • Navigate to the program file on your computer or network. Then click Open
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Update.
    The 'Program Uploaded, processing should start soon' message appears. Your program is placed into a job queue and the system updates the program on a task-by-task basis. Depending on the number of jobs in the queue and the size of your project program, the overwrite process may take some time to complete. You can continue working in Procore during this process (Note: To confirm that your upload is complete, click the links in the View By menu to view the program changes). 
    Important! While the program is being updated, it is recommended that you do not attempt to upload another program update. Doing so will add a second job to the queue and jobs will be processed in the order they were uploaded into the system. 

Clear Current Program

  1. Click the Clear Program link to navigate to the Clear Program page. 
  2. Click Clear Program.
    Note: This will permanently delete the program currently uploaded to the project and remove all program change history, along with any links between tasks and other Procore data. See Delete Current Program.

Program Settings

Upload Project Program Files

  1. Select the Program Settings link on the right side of the page.
  2. Select the drop-down menu next to Program Data From.
  3. Click one of the following options:
    • File Upload via Procore Drive
    • File Upload via Procore Documents
      • ImportantEnter the exact or partial name of your program file in the "Program Filename Pattern" field. For example, you would enter "Construction Program.mpp" into this field. Uploaded files into documents matching this exact filename pattern will be automatically updated into the Program tool.
        • You can also utilise special characters to identify partial filename patterns. For example, if you prefix your program file with the date (e.g. 07-26-17_Construction Program .mpp), you can use the asterisk (*) symbol to denote that piece of the filename that will change. For example, you would enter *_Construction Program.mpp into the Program Filename Pattern field.
      • Tip! When multiple users are accessing the program file and you're making changes to the file from the Documents tool, it is recommended that you check out the file so the team members don't overwrite your program changes as you're uploading.

Program Changes & Variation Requests

Program Sidebar

  • Enable Calendar Item Creation: Mark the checkbox if you would like users with 'Standard' level permissions or above to create calendar items on top of the integrated schedule. These calendar items can be published to everyone on the team, or they can be personal and only visible to the person creating them. See Create a Calendar Item.
  • Enable Filtering by Person: Mark the checkbox if you would like users with 'Read-only,' 'Standard,' or 'Admin' level permissions to be able to filter the calendar by a person associated with tasks. You may not want to enable this if your tasks are not assigned to users in Procore.
