    • 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 email an owner payment application to one or more Procore project users. 


You can create an owner payment application that bills against a main contract and then email it to your recipients. If you need to send your payment application to the project owner, this method allows them to view the payment application in your Procore (only they have a Procore user account and you've granted the user access). This proves useful when you want to capture the owner's written approval or rejection reason in writing. Procore automatically stores all replies from recipients in the 'From' address of your outgoing message in the Emails tab of the payment application.

  6. Click Compose Email
    This opens the Compose New Email page.

    • To. Type to search the Project Directory for a list of matching recipient(s).

    • BCC. Type to search the Project Directory for a list of matching recipient(s) to carbon copy. 
    • Subject. This field will populate with the number of the payment application. The subject line is added automatically. You can change it if you want.

    • Attachments. Attach any related documents or files.
  8. Click Send.
    A YELLOW 'Communication Created' banner appears to confirm the outgoing message has been created and added to Procore's outgoing email queue.
    • A record of your outgoing message is saved in the 'Emails' tab on the payment application.
    • Any messages sent to the 'From' address on your outgoing message are automatically saved in the payment application's 'Emails' tab. This provides your message recipients with the convenience to use the reply feature in their email program. It also captures your collaborator's approve or reject responses in writing.
