Create a Custom Submittals Report


To create a custom report using the reporting feature in the project's Submittals tool.


Depending on your access permission level, you can create custom reports that source data from the Submittals tool using the options available in either the Submittals tool or the Reports tools.

Procore's custom submittal reports functionality makes it easy to organise your submittals into relevant reports for your both personal use as well as for company or project-specific needs.With this option, you can create common reports to share with users on all projects or to create reports that are project specific. You can also create personal reports for project engineers and project managers to use to meet day-to-day business goals and you may not want to share those reports with all members of the project team. For details, see Create a New Custom Submittals Report below.
  • Using the Available Report Templates in the Company and Project Level Reports Tool. Procore provides users with access to a variety of report templates for the project's Submittals tool in the Project Management report template category.
