 Also available on  android-gray-icon.jpg  web-gray-icon.jpg 


To add measurements to a drawing in the Drawings tool on your iOS mobile device.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Read Only' or higher permissions on the project's Drawings tool.
  • Additional Information:
    • Calibrations are per user, per drawing, but shared across devices.
    • Measurements only appear on your personal layer. They cannot be added to the public layer.
    • This action can be performed in offline mode (i.e. when an active network connection is not available on your mobile device) if the drawing(s) have already been downloaded to the device. Tasks performed in offline mode will be synced with Procore once a network connection has been reestablished. 


  1. Navigate to the Drawings tool using the Procore app on an iOS mobile device.
  2. Search and filter for the drawing you want to add measurements to.
  3. Tap the drawing.
Calibrate Your Drawing

The first time you add measurements to a drawing, you will first have to calibrate the drawing. 

  1. Tap the Calibrate tool.
  2. Find a place on the drawing where you know the measurement (e.g. the length of a wall). Tap and drag the calibration to the end of the length.
  3. Enter the length in feet and inches (imperial) or metres (metric).
  4. Tap Save.
    Note: If you ever delete this calibration, all of your measurement markups will still be in place. However, they will be re-calculated when you add in a new calibration.
