Below are the notable changes to the project's Direct Costs tool in 2020.
Improved Search now includes the Direct Costs Tool (14/9/2020)
Procore has updated its search capabilities to provide users with more powerful and efficient search results. Procore's project search now looks at the Vendor field for matches and has new type-ahead search capabilities. See Search for Items Within a Project Using Procore Search.
Consistent & Custom Units of Measure (31/3/2020)
If your organisation uses a Unit of Measure (UoM) that is not already in Procore's Unit of Measure Master List, you can add a custom unit of measure. For example, you might want to add the unit of measurement: gallon (gal) to give your users the ability to add items for fuel and/or liquid costs in one of Procore's Project Financials tools. With this update, you'll greater flexibility and improved consistency, particularly for users in specialised trades who require additional units of measure. See Add a Unit of Measure to the Unit of Measure Master List.
Removed Sidebar from Direct Costs Tool (26/2/2020)
As part of a larger design effort to progressively remove the right sidebar from all Procore tools, Procore has removed the side bar from the Variations tools. To learn more, see Direct Costs: Removed Sidebar from Direct Costs Tool.

To provide you with a more modern and consistent data-entry for financial line items, Procore has released an enhanced experience for these Project Financial tools: Change Events, Commitments, Direct Costs, and Prime Contracts. For details, see Project Financials: Enhanced Financial Line Item Experience.
