ADD MARKUPS AND PERSONAL STAMPS TO SUBMITTAL PDF ATTACHMENTS IN PROCORE (09/02/2021)
Procore has released updates to the PDF viewer in the project's Submittals tool that allow users who have the current Ball In Court responsibility for a submittal to add markups to the submittal's PDF attachments in the Procore web application. See Review Submittal PDF Attachments. Users can also upload one or more personal stamps that can be used in addition to the markup tools provided by Procore. See Manage Personal Submittal Markup Stamps.
NEW SUBMITTAL CONFIGURATION SETTING FOR SUBMITTAL ATTACHMENTS SENT IN PROCORE EMAILS (09/02/2021)
Procore has added a configuration setting in the project's Submittals tool to allow submittal attachments (added in the submittal's General Information or in a workflow step) sent in Procore emails to be downloaded without requiring email recipients to log in to Procore. If the setting is configured to allow recipients to download the attachments without logging in to Procore, the submittal attachment download links will expire after 14 days from the notification email's sent date. See Configure Settings: Submittals Tool.
