Configure the Default Privacy Settings for New Commitments


To configure the default privacy settings for new commitments created with the project's Commitments tool. 


When you create a new commitment in the project's Commitments tool, Procore's default setting is to place a checkmark in the 'Private' box. This ensures the commitment is only visible to users with 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Commitments tool. Most Procore users choose to keep this default setting. 

If you have 'Admin' level permissions on the Commitments tool and want to change the default behavior, you can configure Procore to create new purchase orders and subcontracts that are NOT private. However, your project users will retain the ability to apply privacy settings on individual commitments that they create and edit.

    • 'Admin' level permission on the project's Commitments tool.
