Compile Payment Application Backups


To compile a backup of default payment application PDF and all of its PDF attachments for one or multiple payment applications.


An payment application backup lets you generate a single PDF that contains a PDF copy of each individual payment application that you select. This feature saves valuable time so you don't have to manually export multiple payment applications or compile those downloads into a single PDF. Instead, Procore does this work for you.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Commitments tool.
      • User permissions are NOT managed in the project's Invoicing tool. Instead, the Invoicing tool is designed for users with 'Admin' level permissions on the Main Contracts and/or Commitments tool. 
      • If you are a collaborator (for example, an payment application contact for a subcontracting company that is performing work for a main contractor managing your contract in Procore), your ability to perform payment application-related tasks is determined by the project team that controls these settings for your Procore user account: 
        • Your user account's permissions on the project's Commitments and/or Main Contracts tool.
        • Your membership on the 'Private' list of a specific main contract, purchase order, or subcontract.
        • Your designation as an 'Payment Application Contact' on a main contract, purchase order or commitment.
      • To learn more about permissions for specific tasks that can be performed with the Invoicing tool, see Permissions: Invoicing.
  • Additional Information:
    • If DocuSign was used and the DocuSign© workflow is complete, all versions of the PDFs will include the DocuSign© version.
