Complete a Head Contract with DocuSign®


To complete the signature process for a head contract with the DocuSign® integration.


If you have a DocuSign® account, you can connect your Procore head contract to DocuSign® tool to manage the signature process. This lets you and your head contract's signatories receive, review and return contract signatures online—at any time and from any Internet-enabled device. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • To initiate the DocuSign® signature process, 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Head Contracts tool. 
      To sign a Procore head contract with DocuSign®, you do NOT require access permission to Procore's Head Contracts tool. A PDF copy of the head contract is available in DocuSign® for review.

Sign into DocuSign

  • At the DocuSign® login page, enter the email address for your DocuSign® account.
    If you don't have a DocuSign® account to complete the sign-in process,  see How do I get a DocuSign® account?

  • Click Continue.
  • Enter your password.
  • Click Register In
    The head contract and any attachments appear in the 'Add Documents to the Envelope' section.  
  • Optional: If you want to upload additional documents, you have these options:
    • Upload
    • Use a Template
    • Get From Cloud
      If you upload additional documents to DocuSign®, those documents are only added to DocuSign®. They are NOT added to Procore. 
  • In the 'Add Recipients to the Envelope' section, the 'Architect/Engineer' and 'Owner/Client' designated in the contract are automatically added to the envelope as recipients. 
    If your project has implemented a custom form for your project's Head Contracts tool or if you want to add more recipients to the envelope, you can add them using the options in DocuSign®. Keep in mind that these recipients are NOT added to Procore, they are only added to DocuSign®. 

  • Click Next.
  • Review the signing fields in the DocuSign® envelope. By default, Procore adds these fields for each recipient named in the Procore version of the head contract:
    • Signature
    • Date Signed
  • Click the Send button at the top or bottom of the DocuSign® page.


    Procore sends the head contract to the named recipients to collect their signatures. Recipients do NOT require a DocuSign® account. See Do I need a DocuSign© account? However, they do need to agree to the terms of the DocuSign® Electronic Record and Signature Disclosure. After a recipient signs the contract, a copy of the signed contract is sent to all signers.

    When all of the signatures are completed, the following banner appears across the top of the head contract. You have these options:

    • View. This lets you view the contract. Click the Export link to download the contract to your web browser's Download location on your computer. 
    • Edit. This lets you edit the contract. Register back into your DocuSign® account to modify the envelope in DocuSign®. 
    • Withdraw. Click OK at the confirmation message to delete the signed contract from DocuSign®.
