  4. Complete the following fields:
    • Sign with DocuSign©

    • Variation #
      Accept the default contract number, enter a new number for this contract or create a custom numbering scheme for this contract and future contracts.
       Note
      • If you plan to create multiple variations, Procore automatically assigns new numbers in sequential order. For example; 001, 002, 003 and so on. 
      • To use a custom numbering scheme, enter any set of alphanumeric characters and Procore automatically assigns new numbers in sequential order using your custom scheme. For example, enter HCV-1, HCV-01 or HCV-001. 
    • Date Created
      Shows the date and time the HCV was created. You cannot change this date.

    • Title
      Enter a title for the HCV.
