What is your role in the invoicing process?

When using the Progress Claim Management tools in Procore, only an progress claim administrator or an progress claim contact on a commitment can create a subcontractor progress claim

For progress claim Administrators

An progress claim administrator has these options to create progress claims: (1) Send an 'Invite to Bill' to provide progress claim contacts with the ability to submit their own progress claims in Procore, or (2) Gather digital or paper progress claims, outside of Procore, and create them yourself in Procore. With the first option, you must provide an external collaborator with access permission to the Project level Commitments tool and add that person as progress claim contact on a commitment. With the second option, no external access permissions are required.

For progress claim contacts

After an external collaborator is granted progress claim contact permissions, they have these options. If invited to bill, a contact can (1) accept the invite and submit a progress claim before the Open billing period's due date, or (2) decline the invite without submitting a progress claim. Progress Claim contacts who don't receive an invite, also have permission to create new progress claims for their commitment for the Open billing period in the Project level Commitments tool. 

  • As a progress claim contact, always confirm the appropriate steps to use with the party that contracted your services before submitting your progress claim in Procore
  • Progress Claim administrators do NOT always choose to add progress claim contacts on a project's commitments. Some progress claim administrators prefer to gather digital or paper progress claims (outside of Procore). Once collected, they create progress claims in Procore on the contact's behalf.
