To approve or reject the line items on a subcontractor payment application using the project's Commitments tool. 


If you are responsible for managing your project's subcontractor payment applications for accuracy, you can approve or reject individual line items on the payment application. In order to perform a review as an payment application administrator, your Procore user account must be assigned the required user permissions described below. After these permissions are assigned, you can then navigate to the payment application using either the project's Commitments tool or the project's Payment applications tool. This tutorial shows you how to review your project's payment applications using the Commitments tool.

  2. Click the Contracts tab. 
  3. Locate the purchase order or subcontract with the payment application in the contracts table. Click its Number link to open it.

  5. In the 'Invoices (Payment applications)' table, locate the payment application to review. Then click View.

        • Comments entered in the 'Leave a Reason Why' box are NOT included in the automated email sent to the payment application contact. However, you can export a PDF that includes a 'Reasons for Difference' table that shows the comments as entered.
      • Press ENTER to submit your explanation for rejecting the line item. 
        • If you have turned the 'Show amounts subcontractors claim' option ON in the Configure Settings page of the project's Payment applications tool, the 'Proposed Amount' column appears.
