Procore

Generate Locations From Drawings (Open Beta)

Objective

Use Procore's Ai-powered Locations feature to automatically generate a tiered list of locations from your project's architectural drawings.

Background

Often, a list of locations for a project is tiered. Tiered locations give users the ability to link different Procore objects (e.g., RFIs, Submittals, and more) to specific locations on a job site. This helps project team members to pinpoint the exact location(s) on a job site where a defect was observed, where equipment will be installed, or where a project change order occurred.

Examples
Let's say your project includes the construction of a parking lot. You might use a location structure like this:

Parking Lot A > Ground Floor > East
Parking Lot A > Ground Floor > West
Parking Lot A > Level Two > East
Parking Lot A > Level Two > West

Procore's Locations feature allows you to automatically generate this list from your project's architectural drawings.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
  • Additional Information
    • Locations must be published to be visible to users with 'Read Only' or 'Standard' level permissions who do not also have the 'Manage Locations' granular permission. Draft locations are only visible to users with 'Admin' level permissions.

Steps

  1. Navigate to the Drawings tool.
  2. Click Create Location Hierarchy.
  3. Select the drawings you want to use to create your list of locations.
  4. Click Submit for Extraction.
    A tile appears in the side menu panel to show the progress of your location extraction.
  5. Once processing is complete, click Review Locations.
    Locations are listed alongside an image of the associated drawing. Check the boundaries shown in the overlay on top of your drawings. Modify the boundaries if needed by clicking the vertical ellipse > Edit > Boundary. Click and drag the points around the boundary to reconfigure it.
  6. After review, click Save as Draft or Publish Locations.
