To accept or decline an 'Invite to Bill' as an progress claim contact.


After creating a new billing period, an progress claim administrator can send an 'Invite to Bill to the progress claim contact on a commitment. The invite reminds the contact to submit their progress claim by the Open billing period's due date. The subject line reads "Project Name: User Name has invited you to bill." Progress Claim contacts can then accept or decline the invite. 

Missing your 'Invite to Bill'? Progress Claim contacts can create new progress claims in Procore. See Create a Subcontractor Progress Claim.

  2. Look for the email message with the subject line, " "Project Name: User Name has invited you to bill."

    • Billing Period. The date range for the Open billing period. 
    • Invited By. The name of the sender. Typically, this is the progress claim administrator.
