Add a Related Item to a Commitment


To add a related item to a purchase order or subcontract in the Commitments tool. 


In Procore, a Related Item is a link between two Procore objects. It is an option that's available in many Procore tools, such as Commitments, Documents, RFIs, Submittals and Transmittals. For example, if you are creating a submittal, you might add a Procore drawing of the installation location or a photo of the item to be installed as a related item on the submittal. If you are adding a new defect item, you might link a Potential Variation (PV) or a Commitment Variation (CV) as a related item, so the subcontractor can view the costs associated with the defect item. 

You can add related items to a commitment in the Related Items tab of a commitment.  To learn more about related items, see What are 'related items' in Procore?
