Create a Potential Variation from an RFI

If your company's Procore Administrator has enabled Change Events in the Company Admin tool and added it to your Procore project's 'Project Tools' menu, you will NOT be able to create a potential variation from an RFI. Instead, your configured workflow requires you to follow these steps: Create a Change Event from an RFI.


To create a potential variation from an RFI in the project's RFIs tool. 

Things to Consider


  1. Navigate to the project's RFIs tool.
  2. Select the RFI from which you want to create the potential variation.
  3. Click Create Potential VAR.
    • The Create Potential VAR button is only visible and available when the prerequisites above have been satisfied.
    • The RFIs information is used to populate the fields in the potential variation. 
  4. Add or edit information as needed.
  5. Enter a description.
  6. Add an existing variation request, create a new variation request or do not attach a variation request.
  7. Add a change reason, who the request was received from, if there is a program impact, location, who a reference is and any attachments. You can change the site change, paid in full and void options now or later.
