Create a Potential Variation (PV) with DocuSign®


To create a Main Contract Variation with DocuSign©.


If you have a DocuSign© account, you are able to track the status of a signed document in Procore. You can receive, review and return their signed contracts online, at any time and from any Internet-enabled device.

If you do not have DocuSign© enabled, see Enable the DocuSign© Integration on a Project.

Things to Consider


For projects not using the Change Events tool

  1. Navigate to the project's Main Contracts tool.
  2. Click + Create Potential VAR.
  3. Mark the Sign with DocuSign© checkbox.

  4. Fill out the related fields. See Create a Potential Variation (PV).
  5. Click Complete with DocuSign© at the bottom of the page.

    1. Enter your DocuSign© email address.

    2. Click Continue
    3. Enter your password.
    4. Click Log In.
  7. Once you are in DocuSign©, Procore's contract PDF will pre-populate as a document in DocuSign©, or you can choose to add your own document. 
  8. Upload documents by doing one of the following:
    1. Upload
    2. Use a Template
