Create Deficiency List Items with Quick Capture from a Drawing (iOS)


To create deficiency list items on a drawing using the Quick Deficiency feature on the Procore iOS app.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Read Only' level permissions or higher on the project's Drawings tool.
    • 'Standard' level permissions or higher on the project's Deficiency List tool.


  • Your iOS device must be configured to allow the Procore app to access the device's 'Camera', 'Microphone', and 'Speech Recognition' features. When you open Quick Capture for the first time, the Procore app will automatically prompt you to allow it to access these features. If you denied the Procore app's access to these features, see Apple's Control Access to Hardware Features on iPhone icon-external-link.png for more information about manually configuring these features.
  • Your iOS device must have the 'Dictation' feature enabled. See Apple's Dictate Text on iPhone icon-external-link.png.
