Add a Project to a Program


To add a project to a program (also referred to as a project group) that has been created in your company's Procore account.


A project is a construction effort with a defined start and end date with specific goals and objectives that, when obtained, signify completion of the project. A program is a group of related construction projects that provide your organization with benefits from managing projects as a group, over managing projects individually. There are countless ways to organize your company's projects into programs, such as:

  • Region. For example, you might create programs for the four (4) regions of the U.S., such as 'Northeast', 'Midwest', 'South', and 'West.'
  • Sector. For example, you might create programs for the different construction sectors, such as 'Buildings', 'Infrastructure', and 'Industrial.'
  • Project Management. For example, you might create programs for 'Internal Projects' and 'External Projects'. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • To add projects to programs, 'Admin' level permission on the project's Admin tool.
    • To view programs, Access permission to the project
      'Read-Only' level permission or higher on the project's Programs tool. 
  • Requirements:
    • A project can only be associated with one (1) program. It cannot be assigned to multiple programs. 
  • Additional Information:
    • To see which projects are currently assigned to a program, navigate to the company's Admin tool. Then click the "+" icon to the right of the program name. The "Projects Assigned to this [program name]" section will appear with a list of assigned projects.
    • When you add a new program, it will only show up in your company's Programs tool once a project has been associated with that program.
