Create the ability to markup spec sections just like drawings. Many markups apply to both drawings and specs.
We wanted to take a minute to share more as this request is our top rated and we’re so grateful for the continued input that each of you provided. At Procore, our vision is to improve the lives of everyone in construction. Building software to improve the lives of all roles within construction is so important to us and we continue to pursue this every day. The opinions each of you share here is critical to helping us understand if we’re heading the right direction. So, thank you!
We know this will be a very valuable feature and this is something that we’re actively working towards. There is some underlying technology that we need to improve before we feel confident to deliver a feature like this at the scale of supporting various roles and project types in construction. So while we may not yet be able to update this ticket to “Started” quite yet, know that we are working towards making this functionality available.

The initial suggestion for this was made in 2014...

I would also like to request this to be a priority. I agree with Kyle Park's comment. It's also a waste of time to dig through RFIs just to make sure your spec wasn't affected.
Josh Smyser commented
This needs to be a top priority!
Giuseppe Iuliucci commented
Almost at 2 years since this was originally requested. This needs to be made a priority.
Craig Hanus commented
It would be helpful if this ticket could be prioritized, and moved to 'Started' in 2021. Please @Delia Garcia.
Will Pritikin commented
Joining the push here — this would be great to get in ASAP!
Kirk Paul commented
Can we expect this update 2021?
Kyle Park commented
This needs to be a feature available in Procore, and should be a priority. Downloading individual specification sections, marking up in Bluebeam and then reuploading is just a huge waste of time.
Ryan Perryman commented
Your competition has this capability, would love to see Procore add it!
Shiloh Kerr commented
This is a core feature that should be implemented on Procore. Markups to specifications is a crucial means of keeping a record of changes for the field. PLEASE PRIORITIZE!
Derek Westfall commented
This would be incredibly helpful. I like to be able to call attention quickly to items that I know the field will need to reference on a regular basis (i.e. insulation specs & hanger/rod sizing).
Edy Bianco commented
This would be so helpful for our Project Teams and simplify our processes just surprised not yet implemented.
Kristian Arellano commented
We need this ASAP
Colleen Atves commented
This needs to be #1 priority.
William Carpenter commented
Mark up tool for specifications.
- highlight, commnet and link sections
Afsoon Manavi commented
This is a very useful tool and we need to get it prioritized. Not sure how busy Procore dev department is but this should be looked at again.
Steven Geisler commented
We should have the same abilities in the specifications that we have in the drawings.
David Vo commented
Agreed! Contract Documents are Drawings and Specifications.
Kent Madsen commented
Markup Tool for Spec Book needs to be developed. I want to be able to highlight, underline, add changes made by the addendums or RFI's, highlight what products were submitted, etc.
Isaiah Unruh commented
I think it's worth mentioning that there are multiple facets to why this is so critical. Out "contract documents" for a project are primarily the plans and the specs (among other things). If we can only mark up one and not the other, how can we say our as-builts are complete? Additionally, while you can download the spec section, mark it up, and reupload it, that only leaves "dumb" markups with no links. This means two things: 1. The person viewing the markup is only getting half the story, not the whole RFI. 2. Not every RFI can be properly linked. This is a huge quality control problem. We should be able to run the report that shows all RFI's that are not yet linked to an item and it should be empty if we are up-to-date. However, since we can't link to spec's, we have to be satisfied with some RFI's staying unlinked. This needs to be prioritized.
