Frequently Asked Questions

Can I link Groundplan to more than one Simpro build?


You can only have your Groundplan Account linked to one Simpro URL. If you have more than one Simpro URL requiring Quotes to be sent to, you will separate Groundplan Accounts for each URL you wish to use.

However, Groundplan can connect to multiple companies with a single Simpro URL if you have a multi-company Simpro build.

Can I switch between Simpro URLs on my Groundplan?


All data pulled through from Simpro Groundplan is based on IDs. By disconnecting one Simpro URL and reconnecting to a different one, you will have data problems, including Measurements not sending across to Simpro correctly.

Can I have more than one Groundplan Account linked to the same Simpro URL?


Each Groundplan Account can be connected via the Integrations Tab.

Why can't I see the “Integrations'' tab?

Only Users who are Administrators can see the Integration Section. Please have your Administrator connect Groundplan with Simpro.

Can I share Projects outside of my organsiation?


However, when sharing Projects with another organisation also using Simpro, only Prebuilds and Catalogue items from your connected Simpro account can be pushed correctly to your Simpro Quote.

Simpro items are linked to Groundplan using background ID's.

Any catalogue items or prebuilds linked from a different Simpro URL will not create the correct/expected item in your Simpro Quote.
