Complete a Commitment Contract with DocuSign®


To complete the electronic signature process for a commitment using the Procore + DocuSign® integration.


After you create a purchase order or subcontract, Procore users with a DocuSign® account can prepare a DocuSign® envelope for the commitment and send it to the appropriate recipient to request a signature.

If you are the recipient of a signature request, you do not need a DocuSign® account. However, if you do have a DocuSign® account and the email address matches the email you use in Procore, a copy of any documents you sign will be saved in your DocuSign® account. After all of the required signatures are collected in DocuSign®, Procore changes the status of the commitment to 'Approved.'

    • If the data exists in the Procore application, the signature boxes show the recipients 'Role' in the contract process. In the illustration below, the roles are Main Contractor or Subcontractor. If your company has implemented one of Procore's language or point-of-view dictionaries in your environment, the roles that appear may be different. To learn about Procore's languages and dictionaries, see What languages are available in Procore? and What tool names and terms are different in Procore for main contractors, owners and speciality contractors?
