Mark Drawings as Obsolete


To mark drawings as obsolete instead of deleting them from the Drawings tool. 


Procore's "obsolete" option in the Drawings tool allows users to signify that certain drawings in their project are out of date or otherwise not relevant to the project's current set.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' permissions on the project's Drawing tool.
  • Additional Information:
    • When a drawing is marked as obsolete, you will still be able to reference it, but it will no longer be visible in your project's current set. 


  1. Navigate to the project's Drawings tool.

  2. Click the Info button next to the drawing you want to open.
  3. In the 'General' section, click Edit.
  4. Mark the checkbox next to Obsolete.
  5. Click Update.
    The drawing will now have a red banner with a warning that the drawing has been marked as obsolete.
    Note: The obsolete drawing will no longer appear in the 'Current Drawings' set, but it will be listed in its original drawing set(s), with a gray, italicized title. Obsolete drawings can be accessed from the 'All Sets and Revisions' page.
