About Subcontractor Progress Claims (Legacy)

 Legacy Content

This page details the legacy subcontractor progress claim experience. A modernised experience is also available. 


To provide Procore users with information about subcontractor progress claims in Procore. 


In Procore, a subcontractor progress claim originates in the Project Commitments tool. Before you can create a progress claim, your project team must create a commitment for the project, establish a billing period and decide which internal users and/or external collaborators will be granted permission to submit new progress claims.

A Subcontractor Progress Claim is a request for payment submitted by a business or individual who has entered into a binding agreement with another contracting party. In Procore, a subcontractor progress claim is an equivalent term for a payable progress claim.
