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.
markup on specifications
Create the ability to markup Specifications with linked RFI information. (Similar to how drawings are updated.)
Currently, no changes appear in Specs until a new bulletin is issued, leaving subcontractors in the dark as to the most up to date approved changes to the spec in question.
This can cause confusion and errors in the field.

Needing to be able to markup Specifications the same as drawings. It wold be helpful in clarifying certain items in the specifications being viewed.
Kimberly Hambacher commented
We want to make a change to Specifications in response to an RFI but do not have the ability to markup Specs like we can with Drawings. At this time, making these types of changes to Specs, we would have to edit the document outside of Procore and then re-upload it.
McKenzie Lewis commented
Specifications get modified via RFI's - this happens all the time, yet you cannot mark-up specifications on Procore, this was a gap our company identified prior to signing on with procore (over a year ago) and I have yet to see any action. Not having this feature gives the wrong perception of procore to many users, please get going on this enhancement.
Connor Koppang commented
Please have a similar markup feature for specifications as you do for drawings. The ability of highlighting specification sections and marking up with notes would be fantastic. It would also make those small specification updates much easier (instead of printing and scanning back in).
Daniel Rossi commented
The ability to mark specification for changes like you would with drawings. Linking Instructions or documents to the specification.
Alison Owens commented
Allow markup tool in Specifications Tool - this would be great for posting addendum that may make changes to specifications.
Sarah A. commented
We often receive updates on our specification however do not always receive a new specification sheet. So we are left with having to make notes/markups on the originals and this information is usually received through a CM Clarification. If would be great if we can actually link Clarifications to Spec markups.
Keith Leonard commented
It would be helpful to be able to add markups to the specifications such as RFI changes, ASI's or other documents just as drawings can be marked up. Sometimes RFI's do not pertain to a drawing sheet but are related to something in the specs.
Jesse Bluhm commented
The Mark-Up Tool needs to be available for Specifications similar to the Drawings.
Part of the General Contractor’s contract obligation is to maintain and create “As-builts” as we progress through the project. This means maintaining and posting RFI’s on both specifications as well as the drawings. This is a critical function and hopefully can be integrated with the next Procore update.
The user needs the ability to cloud specification sections (similar to clouding drawings) and link them to RFI's so that when a future user logs onto Procore and looks up specification they will see the clouded areas and recognize that an RFI has been generated regarding that particular spec section.

Client would like the ability to markup a spec section so they don't have to upload revisions for each change that the architect makes.
Brian Lancaster commented
Add capability to markup specifications similar to the way you can markup drawings.
Daniel Williams commented
Please include the ability to bookmark specification pages.
The option or capability to mark-up specifications similar to the drawings. Add text, lines or strike through text. this would be handy if you have an addendum issued by the architect that does not come with a fully updated PDF. If they correct one line in the specs you should be able to mark-up the spec to reflect that information for all persons associated with the project to see.
Mark-up in Specifications-
Would be great to have mark-up capability in the Specifications tool. Often times, Architects issue addenda during the bidding period that only reference changes to specific verbiage within a spec section; or will replace only one page of a spec section. Ideally, we'd like to be able to mark up the spec as stated in the addenda or replace single pages within the Specifications tool in Procore. Currently, we would have to make those changes in Bluebeam or another program and then upload the modified pdf as a revision.
Be able to mark up specifications with links to RFIs/documents similar to the capabilities in drawings.

Markup specifications the same as drawings
Gary Walker commented
In order to mark up specs is an essential task since you should have the ability to mark up all contract documents. Currently the way that you have to mark up the specs is to make the red lines in blue beam and then re-upload that particular specification section that was marked up.
Justin Murray commented
Please implement there is not an intuitive way to link an RFI to a Specification.
