View Variations

Also available on     


To view all variations submitted from the project's Commitments or Main Contract tool. 


The Variations tool was designed as a viewing tool to provide project team's with a central place to view all of the variations in a project's Commitments or Main Contract tool. While you can view all contracts on a project, you cannot create new variations from the tool. Instead, you create variations by following these steps:  Create a Commitment Variation (CV) or Create a Main Contract Variation (MCV)

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • 'Read-Only' and 'Standard' permission or higher on the project's Variations tool. 
    • Your user profile must also be added as a member of the 'Private' drop-down list on the contract.
      Do you want your subcontractors to be able to see their variations without granting their user account access to the Commitments tool? To do this, you can grant a user 'Standard' access permission to the Variations tool and then add that user as a 'Designated Reviewer' on the Commitment Variation. To learn how, see Create a Commitment Variation (CV).
  • Additional Information:
    • When a user who has ‘None’ permission on the Variations tool is added to the ‘Private’ drop-down list on a main contract, that user can view related variations in both the ‘Draft’ and ‘Void’ status.
    • Users with ‘Admin’ permission on the Main Contracts tool are permitted to view all Main Contracts Variations (MCVs) in all statuses from the Variations tool. 
    • If you been granted the 'View Private Purchase Orders' or 'View Private Subcontracts' granular permission for the project's Commitments tool, those permissions only apply when viewing 'Private' variation data from within the Commitments tool. Please note that granular permissions do NOT extend to the project's Variations tool. See Grant Granular Permissions in a Permissions Template.
