What do we need to consider before allowing downstream collaborators to submit progress claims in Procore?


Before providing your downstream collaborators with permission to submit progress claims for their commitments on your Procore projects, your company's Procore Administrator and project teams should decide if allowing collaborators to submit their own progress claims is the right choice for your company. Questions to ask include:

  • Do you want to save your team time and effort by allowing your downstream collaborators to submit their own progress claims in Procore directly?
  • Do your downstream collaborators have an employee or representative that you can designate as an progress claim contact

If you answered Yes to the questions above, review the Answer below to learn more about your team's options for creating progress claims in Procore. 


Don't want your downstream collaborators submitting progress claims in Procore? If your team prefers to collect paper or digital progress claims from downstream collaborators outside of Procore, simply provide one or more project team member(s) with the required user permissions so they can Create a Subcontractor Progress Claim on Behalf of a Progress Claim Contact.


To help your team decide who can submit progress claims in your Procore projects, review the information in this table.

Who do you want to create the progress claim? What is this person called in Procore? Does this person require access permissions to the Project level Commitments tool?  Is this person's access permissions to our project's commitments and invoicing data limited?  Learn More
A designated employee or representative of our downstream collaborator(s).  Progress Claim Contact 

See What is a progress claim contact?
No. You must explicitly designate this person as a progress claim contact on each commitment. This grants the user access to view data and submit progress claims for specific commitments in a project. 

Yes. To view a commitment and all of its corresponding progress claim data, you must designate a progress claim contact on each individual commitment in your project.

An employee or trusted team member is granted the required user permissions on the Project level Commitments tool.  Progress Claim Administrator Yes. 'Admin' level permissions or higher on the Project level Commitments tool. This grants the user full permission to view all commitments and any progress claim data, on a Procore project.  No. This person can view all of the commitment and progress claim data on the project(s) to which they have been granted access permissions.
