Configurable Budget Snapshots

The Configurable Budget Snapshots report provides you with a way to create a list that multiple budget snapshots in Procore’s reporting tool. The report lists each budget snapshot on its own row. It does not show variance. This report sources its report columns from the budget snapshots that have been create on your Procore projects. This report requires you to first create a budget snapshot. For instructions, see Create a Budget Snapshot 

USE CASES

Use Procore's custom report feature to create a custom financial line items reports to compare your project's budget snapshots.  A budget snapshot is a picture of your budget in its current state and snapshots can be taken at different times during a project's lifecycle. For example, your project team might take a budget snapshot at the end of each month or after a forecast update. Using budget snapshots lets you analyse how your budget changes over the course of a project and you can enhance that ability by creating a financial line item report to compare your project's budget snapshots. 

How to Use

Financial Line Item Details

The Financial Line Item Details option lets you extract a log of all of your financial line items for every line item type, whether it’s a forecasting line item, Bill of Quantities (BOQ) line item on a commitment or a Potential Variation (PV). This report is similar to clicking an amount in the Budget tool as it shows one (1) line per transaction or BOQ line item and has only one (1) amount column.

 Important
To view this report option, all of Procore's Project Financials tools must be enabled on your Procore company account. In addition, you must be your company's Procore Administrator

Use Cases

The Financials Line Item Details report provides an alternate way to see individual transactions without having to go to each individual item in the financial tools.

Example
If you are a main contractor, use this to provide your project owner with a list of all contingency or allowance use. This report shows the amount deducted from Contingency or Allowance budget codes. Since Contingency or Allowance use typically results in a net £0 main contract potential variation, the amount used from Contingency or Allowance cannot be accessed from the Main Potential Variation log.
  • Provides insight into Unit/Quantity data (Quantity, Units & Unit Cost) per cost code for Unit/Quantity based contracts and variations.

  • Produces a list/log for the Financial Mark-Up amount per Main potential variation in one place.

How to Use

In this report, Procore recommends including every type of financial line item in a log format. This means, to properly use the report, you must use bring in the 'Type' field to use as a report filter (for example, filtering the report by forecast line items, payment applications and so on.)

  • This report enables users to see each individual line item for any given cost code.

  • This report doesn’t include data from the ERP Integrations tool. 

Financial Line Item Summary

Adding the Financial Line Item Summary option to your custom report includes a summary of your financial data at the cost level and enables you to report off of your financials alongside other Procore data. This report is similar to the Budget tool, where there is one (1) line item per cost code + cost type and there are different columns with different amounts.

Use Cases

  • Construction executives can analyse their financial data for each cost code, so that they can see their costs and/or billings across their entire portfolio.

  • Owner clients can utilise the project square footage (entered in Admin tool) and calculate their Budget or Cost amount per line item per square foot.

How to Use

  • This report summarises financial information for each individual cost code. The best way to use this report at the company level is to always group by Project Name first. This will enable you to get an accurate aggregation of SUM, MIN, MAX, AVG on currency fields.  

  • This report also is best used with calculated columns. For example, Direct Costs + Payment Applications would potentially give you the Job to Date Costs.

  • This report includes main contract amount per cost code, payment applications per cost code and pay applications, making it easy to tie other financial items.

  • This report doesn’t include ERP data yet.
