To close an observation on your Android mobile device and inform all responsible parties that the work has been completed and accepted.


Once you have been assigned an observation, you will get an email containing all the 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 on a computer or mobile device to change the status to 'Ready for Review,' telling the creator that they can now review the completed work. This article details how to complete this action on an Android mobile device.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions: 'Admin' users can close any observation. 'Standard' users can close observations that they've created.
  • This asset or item can be viewed or edited in offline mode if it was previously viewed and cached on your mobile device. Tasks performed in offline mode sync with Procore once a network connection is reestablished. 


  • The status of the observation must be set to 'Ready for Review.'
