Search for Items Within a Project Using Procore Search


To search for items within a project using Procore Search.


Procore Search provides a single, consistent search experience across tools in a project. Instead of needing to search separately within each tool, you can search for items across an entire project to quickly locate the information you need. 

Things to Consider

    • 'Read Only' level permissions or higher on the Project Home tool. 
      Note: You will only be able to see search results for items that you have permission to view.
