Email a Main Contract

Objective

To email a main contract to other Procore users for review and/or approval.

Background

After you create one or more main contracts, you may have a need to share that information with other individuals. Unlike other Procore tools that send automatic email notifications to members of a distribution group or list when items are created, updated or approved, a main contract contains sensitive financial data. To protect that data, main contracts much be explicitly sent to individuals.  

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • To send a main contract by email, 'Standard' level permissions or higher permissions on the project's Main Contracts tool.
    • To be named as a recipient in the To or CC field, you must have a user account in the Project Directory. 
      Note: All recipients named in the To or CC field can view your main contract data in the PDF attached to the email message. 
    • To gain access to a main by clicking the 'View this Contract' or 'View Online' link in the email message:
      • 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Main Contracts tool. 
        OR
      • 'Read Only' or 'Standard' level permissions on the project's Main Contracts tool AND your name must be listed under 'Make this Visible only to Administrators and the Following Users.'
  • Limitations:
    • Unlike other Procore tools, which send automated email notifications to distribution groups or lists, the Main Contracts tool requires you to use the steps below.

      Does your main contract contain attachments that don't want your email recipients to view? If your project team has added attachments to the main contract you are sending by email, be sure to review all of those attachments to ensure you are OK with sending them to your recipients.
