Send Multiple Subcontractor Payment Applications to DocuSign®

If you have 'Admin' permission to the Commitments tool, you can also use the project's Invoicing tool to send payment applications to DocuSign® in bulk.

  1. Navigate to the project's Invoicing tool.
  2. Click the Subcontractor tab.
  3. Mark the check boxes next to the payment applications to bulk send to DocuSign® . 
  4. Click Send to DocuSign®
    Note: If the Send to DocuSign® button is greyed out and unavailable, hover your mouse cursor over the button. A tool tip appears to inform you of the reason. Typically, it is because the commitment does not have an 'Payment Application Contact' assigned to it. See Add Payment Application Contacts to a Commitment.

    The selected payment applications are sent to DocuSign® . You will see a success banner at the top of the page when complete.
    • When sending payment applications in bulk, the DocuSign®  integration only sends payment applications to the individuals listed as 'Payment Application Contact(s)' on the contract in Procore.
    • Some DocuSign®  features are NOT available when using the bulk send option. For example, adding or removing documents, adding recipients and so on.
    • To use the unavailable DocuSign®  features, follow the steps in Complete Subcontractor Payment Applications with DocuSign®.
