Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:

  • Additional Information:
    • Whenever you upload specifications to the Specifications tool, Procore will automatically divide your specifications (PDF) into individual divisions and spec sections using OCR technology. See Upload Specifications.
    • You are able to manually create spec sections, but you cannot upload a PDF to the spec section. To create spec sections linked to specification PDFs, see Upload Specifications.
