 Note
The Steps below are only supported when your company's Procore account is using the ERP Integrations tool with Sage 300 CRE® or Viewpoint® Vista™.

Objective

To enable the job cost transaction syncing setting on a Procore project for companies using the Procore + Sage 300 CRE® integration.

Background

If your Procore company account is integrated with Sage 300 CRE® or Viewpoint® Vista™, you have the ability to import job cost transaction data from your ERP. Once imported,  the values of those transactions can be viewed in the 'Direct Costs' column on a budget line item in a Procore project. In addition, users who are assigned the appropriate granular permission can also click the values in the 'Direct Costs' column in the budget tool to open a window showing detailed information about the item.

  • Add a 'Direct Costs' source column to your Procore project's budget view
    Provides authorized users with the ability to add a 'Direct Costs' column to your project's budget view. 
  • Track ERP costs in a Procore budgetOnce the 'Direct Costs' column has been added to a budget view, project users with access permissions to the budget can view the lump-sum totals from the job cost transactions as a value on a budget line item. The value in this column shows your project's 'Direct Costs' total for the types and statuses selected in the column configuration. To learn more see Add the Columns for Job Cost Transaction Syncing to a Budget View for ERP Integrations.
  • View direct cost transaction detail on a budget line item.
    Project users with the 'View Direct Cost Detail' granular permission enabled on their permission template can click the hyperlink in the Direct Costs column of a budget line item to open the direct cost's details in a popup window. This granular permission is located in the 'Budget' area when configuring a permission template.
