This table shows the differences in tool names (bold) and terms across the point-of-view dictionaries for Project Financials. These dictionaries are available in US English only. The default dictionary is designed for main contractors, which means that you will need to work with your Procore Administrator at your company and your Procore point of contact to access the other dictionary options.

To manage the rows and columns in a subcontractor payment application's Bill of Quantities.
If you want to show, hide, group, sort or size the columns in the 'Bill of Quantities' table in the project's Commitments tool, there are a variety of operations you can use to organise the line items on your payment applications.
Things to Consider
- Group by Menu
- Bulk Edit a Bill of Quantities
- Manage Table Settings
- Manage Columns
- Overflow Menu
Group by Menu
A Group by menu is available when viewing and editing a payment application's Bill of Quantities. With these options, you can choose how the system groups your line items in the Bill of Quantities. By default, the Commitment Lines and Variations option is selected. You can add and remove any additional options as desired.
TipHow do I show/hide columns that I've selected as grouping options? When you add an option to the Group By menu, Procore automatically adds the column to the right side of the table, unless that column is already configured to show in the Bill of Quantities. To show or hide columns, apply the ON/OFF controls described in Configure Columns.
To organise your Bill of Quantities data, you can click the grab bar on the left side of each option (see 1 and 2 below) and drag the option into the desired position to modify the hierarchy of item groupings in the BOQ table. To remove any options from the payment application, click the close (x) icon next to a single option or simply click Reset.
When applying the menu options, its important to note that the groupings in the Bill of Quantities do NOT impact the layout of the payment application's PDF export files. Any settings you apply to one contract's payment application, do not change the settings on another contract's payment applications. However, any options you set do remain in effect between user sessions on the selected contract's payment applications.
Bulk Edit a Bill of Quantities
You can bulk edit the percentage values to apply to selected line items on a subcontractor payment application's Bill of Quantities. To open the Edit panel, select the line items and then click the Pencil icon. The fields in the Edit panel are available when you update the latest payment application for a commitment. The bulk editing options detailed in the table below are only available when a payment application is in the Draft or Revise & Resubmit status. Any options you set will remain in effect between user sessions on the commitment contract's payment applications.
The first step is to select one (1) or multiple line items using the options illustrated above. The following table describes your options in more detail.
