Mark an Observation Type as Inactive


To mark an observation type as inactive so that team members cannot add it to new observations.


By default, Procore offers six categories of observations with specific observation types within each category. You can add, delete, edit and mark as 'Inactive' your custom and default observation types in the Company level Admin tool. See What are the default observation types used for?
