To create a HC/Client progress claim for a client contract.
An HC/Client Progress Claim is an application for payment, typically submitted by a Speciality Contractor to a Head Contractor (HC) or client to provide an itemized record of the amount due for work performed. In Procore, a HC/Client progress claim is equivalent to an accounts receivable progress claim.
