Delete Segment Items


To delete a segment item that is being used in a budget code from your company's Work Breakdown Structure (WBS).


You can only delete segments from your company's Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) if that segment has NOT been added to a project's budget code. After your project users add a budget code to one of Procore's Project Financials tools, you can no longer delete segment items. This is because segments are tied to the budget codes in your financial data.  

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' level permissions on the Company level Admin tool. 
  • Additional Information:
    • After a segment item is used to create a budget code on a project, it cannot be deleted. However, you can Deactivate Segment Items
  • Limitations:
    • For customers using Procore's Field Productivity tools
      The default segments in WBS are compatible with icon-external-link.png Field Productivity. Custom segments are NOT yet supported. To learn more, see Why can't I create WBS custom segments?
    • For customers using the Company level ERP Integrations tool
      The default segments in WBS are compatible with Procore's ERP Integrations tool. However, some integrations do NOT yet support custom segments. To learn more, see Things to Know about your ERP Integration.
    • For customers who have independently developed or purchased a third-party solution to integrate with Procore
      To take advantage of the custom segment capabilities associated with WBS, any existing API integrations that you have independently developed or purchased to interact with Procore must be updated to support Procore's new WBS API.
    • Custom Segments are NOT supported with the ERP Integrations tool.
