This guide will give a detailed overview of every section and tab that you can find in your Procore to SharePoint integration. This is applicable for both one-way and two-way syncs.

In this section you will see a list of added projects and the size of synced data on the right.
In this section you will find all of your active projects, their Id's and last synced time.

This is the email you signed up with to access the integration portal on integrations.syncezy.com
This is the email associated with the Procore account you connected.
This is the email associated with the SharePoint account you connected.
Enabling this option will send you an email to the SyncEzy-Email about the sync status.
The Procore-SharePoint sync does not allow special characters in the naming. Enabling this option allows us to replace these Special Characters in the Procore Photos tool Album names from # % * : < > ? / \ | ~ " to Hyphen '-'. You may face errors while syncing if you add any of these special characters in Procore or SharePoint and if this option is disabled. This feature works for the Photos tool only as Procore itself cleans up the special characters for the Documents tool whereas in the Photos tool, they allow special characters.
Enabling this option will allow you to delete files from both systems if you delete it from one. If you delete a file from Procore, it will delete it from SharePoint. If you delete a file from SharePoint, it will delete it from Procore. If this option is disabled, deleted files will not be synced and you will have to manually remove it from the other system. You can of course increase or decrease the limit. Once the limit is hit, the sync will not delete any more files and the sync will email the administrator with the path of the files not deleted. The Sync deletes limit will reset after 24 hours. (Please note that the 24-hour deletion limit reset is based on the file deletion time, which means the 24-hour starts from the time you have deleted the file). The important thing to note is that, currently this feature works within the "Documents" tool only. For "Photos" tool you will need to manually delete the files from both sides.
Please note: For example, if this feature is enabled and your sync delete limit is set to 25 in 24 hours and you have deleted 100 files from SharePoint, the deletion of 25 files only will be synced back to Procore. This means those 25 files only will be deleted from both the applications (you are syncing your deletes). However, the deletion of the remaining 75 files will remain unsynced in Procore unless those files are deleted manually from Procore. These 75 files will be shown as unsynced when you check the File Manager in your SyncEzy Integration Portal. To avoid this we recommend you to increase the Sync Delete limit to 10000 or more. The deletion limit can be changed in the Details menu.
This setting is to give a custom name to your integration. Click on the pencil icon to edit and click save when you are done. You can enter 70 characters maximum
In the Data view tab, you can view data related to the Procore to SharePoint sync. You can also export them as an Excel spreadsheet.
You can view the sync status in this tab - success or failure. The sync runs every day and you will be able to see when it starts and when it completes.
Under the File Manager tab, you can view your files in both Procore and SharePoint.
Here is an overview of the File Manager menu, based on the screenshot below.
1 - This is a dropdown list of all the projects you configured and added to the integration.
2 - Select whether you want to view Documents or Photos and press Search to load the results.
3 - This is a link that will take you directly to the Project URL in Procore.
4 - This is a link that will take you directly to the SharePoint location you associated with the Procore project.
5 - This button will allow you to sync ONLY the files and folders in the navigated level. Child and parent files/folders will not sync when this is pressed.
6 - The left side is a list and count of all files and folders in the Procore Project.
7 - The right side is a list and count of all files and folders in the SharePoint location.
8 - The green tick marks indicate that the files/folders are synced and matching between both systems. If it is not matching or synced, it will appear with a red cross and the text in either the Procore or SharePoint side will be greyed out.
This section is basically for Support Users and Developers only to investigate issue within the integration.
In this tab, you can view a log of errors by the project. This is useful in case you want to know why the project may not have been synced.
Simply choose the project from the dropdown and it will populate the errors. If there are no errors, nothing will be populated.
The Configuration tab is where you will add your projects from Procore and select the location in SharePoint you want to sync it to. We have four methods to configure the projects.
2. Auto Sync
4. Folder Sync
1. Click on the "Add Project to Sync" button
2. In the window that pops up, choose your Procore company first
3. Select the Procore project from the list
4. In Project Tools, select whether you want to sync Documents, Photos, RFIs or all.
5. On the right hand side, select your SharePoint Site.
6. Navigate to the folder you want to sync to. (It is recommended to create a folder in SharePoint with the project name so it will be easy to identify the folder when selecting the location, as given in the screenshot below) Note: There will be a red text saying "You can't select this location" if you have selected an invalid location.
7. Click on "Select this location" to sync your Procore project files to the desired location.
8. Click on Add Project when you get the message "Path selected successfully".
Once the project is added, it can take anywhere between 1 hour to 48 hours to sync it fully, depending on the size of the project. You can view the sync status in the "Sync Status" tab
. It will show you that the Initial Sync has been initiated and then it will show you that it is completed.
Auto Sync method allows you to sync all your newly created Procore Projects to the SharePoint location automatically. Please note that this feature will only work if you have checked the box against "Enable Auto Sync". With enabling Auto Sync only new projects will be auto-synced, so if you have existing projects to sync you can use "Show Advance Configuration Options" checkbox to sync them. Please note that if you wish to disable auto sync you will need to navigate to this tab again (Configuration > Add Project to sync > Auto Sync) and remove the checkbox to disable Auto Sync.
If you do not wish to enable Auto Sync you can simply select the Project location in SharePoint and then select the existing projects to sync to that location through "Show Advance Configuration Options" .
You can also select and configure multiple projects to the same location with this option as this it will create folders with the Project name in your chosen SharePoint location. Once you have added the Projects, your projects will be added and visible under the configuration tab within 30 seconds.
CSV method allows you to download a sample file and then you can add the details of your projects as shown in the screenshot above. You can add details of multiple projects and it will configure the project once you upload the file to our portal.
The formatting is strict, so you will need to enter the data exactly as it is presented in the sample project file. If there are any errors, they will be shown when you are uploading the csv file.
This method allows you to sync multiple top level folders from your Procore project to chosen SharePoint location. This method is for those who do not wish sync the whole project but like to sync one or multiple folders to SharePoint. You can add those folders by selecting the checkboxes and the folders will be synced to the SharePoint location. Currently, the Folder Sync method sync the Documents tool only. Please note that only top level folders can be synced with this method. Please Note: If you would like to initiate the first sync from SharePoint then please click here and follow the given instruction before you configure your project with above methods.
