Create Coordination Issues on a Drawing


To create coordination issues directly on a drawing in the project's Drawings tool.


If your account uses the Coordination Issues tool, you can create issues from the Coordination Issues tool in Procore, the Procore plugin in Navisworks®, or directly on a drawing in the Drawings tool. See Create a Coordination Issue. Creating coordination issues on a drawing is an efficient way to create issues and it also helps to ensure that teams have access to both the issues and drawing in one location.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • ‘Standard’ or 'Admin' permissions on the project's Coordination Issues tool.

  • Additional Information:
    • When you create a new coordination issue on a drawing, the markup will automatically be published to the drawing and will be viewable to users with access to the Drawings tool. 
    • After creating a new coordination issue on a drawing, a snapshot of the area of the drawing is added to the coordination issue and the drawing is added to the 'Links' section of the coordination issue. This allows users to easily reference the original drawing when viewing the coordination issue from the Coordination Issues tool.
