To compile a backup that includes all PDF attachments for one or more progress billings.


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