Objective

To send an upstream progress claim to your Procore project's upstream collaborator by email. 

Background

After creating an upstream progress claim that bills against a client contract, funding or head contract, you can send a copy of the progress claim's 'Detail' tab to your upstream collaborator to review. Once reviewed, your collaborator can then reply directly to that message to indicate that they have approved your progress claim for payment (or to supply you with a reason for rejecting your progress claim). To ensure that your collaborator's response is captured in writing, Procore saves all replies to your outgoing message's 'From' address in the Emails tab on the progress claim. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
  • Additional Information:
    • Clicking the Email Progress Claim button sends a copy of the progress claim's 'Detail' tab to the designated recipients.
    • The data on the 'Configurable PDF' tab of the progress claim is NOT provided with this email message. 

Steps

  1. Navigate to the Project level Invoicing or Progress Billings tool. 
  2. Click the Owner tab. 
  3. In the table, locate the progress claim that you want to send. 
  4. Click the Progress Claim # link to open it. 
    This opens the progress claim in your browser window. 
  5. Click the Email Progress Claim button. 
    This launches the 'Forward Progress Claim #[#] for Head Contract #[#]  - [Billing Period Start - Billing Period End]' window in the Emails tab of the progress claim.

  6. Complete the following fields:
    • To. Enter the name of the person you are requesting payment from.
    • CC. Enter in names of people you want to be copied on the email thread. Your name appears in this field by default. 
    • Private. Mark this checkbox if you only want the progress claim to be available to the progress claim administrator and those named in the To/Cc fields.
    • Subject. This field will populate with the number of the progress claim.
    • Attachments. Attach any related documents or files.
    • Message. Include an additional message regarding the progress claim. 
  7. Click Send.
    A YELLOW 'Communication Created' banner appears to confirm the outgoing message has been created and added to Procore's outgoing email queue.
     Note
    • A record of your outgoing message is saved in the 'Emails' tab on the progress claim.
    • Any messages sent to the 'From' address on your outgoing message are automatically saved in the progress claim's 'Emails' tab. This provides your message recipients with the convenience to use the reply feature in their email program. It also captures your collaborator's approve or reject responses in writing.
