- Customise descriptions of work for export PDFs and export to an industry-standard or a customised configuration.
The following features are included in this release:
Simplified Create Invoice Page
A new experience streamlines the progress claim creation process. Procore continues to automatically create new progress claims in the Draft status.

The Create Progress Claim page contains these elements.

Simplified Edit Invoice Page
Once created, you'll see a new page layout that organises all the information you'll need to submit to your project's upstream collaborator.
Easy-to-Update Card Layout & New General Tab
A new General tab on the Edit Progress Claim page replaces the existing Summary, Detail, and Configurable PDF tabs in the legacy experience. A new card layout breaks down your progress claim's content into digestible bits to simplify data entry. In the General Information card, new progress claims are placed into the Draft status automatically at creation. Click the Edit button to update the card information. Information includes Status, Progress Claim No., Billing Period, Billing Date, Period Start, and Period End dates.
Convenient Summary Preview
Below the General Information card, an expandable Summary Preview provides a realistic view of the final progress claim. Procore has also added a new Variation Summary table at the bottom of the page, to summarise any additions and deductions on the progress claim caused by variations. See View a Summary Preview of an Owner Progress Claim.
