      The segments and items that you can select on your Procore project are unique to your project's specific WBS. Contact your company's Procore Administrator if you require assistance with creating a budget code for your environment. 
      • Segments. Depending your project's WBS, you will have between two (2) or up to thirteen (13) 'Segment' drop-down lists. Select the segment items from each drop-down list to define your budget code. 
      • Description. Under the 'Description' section choose one (1) of these option buttons:
        • Concatenated. Select this option button to use Procore's default concatenation method for your budget code. This method concatenates the description for each segment item using a period (.) as a separator.
