Send an Invoice to Accounts Payable in Portfolio Financials

 Note
The information in this tutorial applies to accounts with the Portfolio Financials product in Procore with the 'Send to Accounts Payable' feature enabled. Reach out to your Procore point of contact for more information. 

Objective

To send an invoice to Accounts Payable (AP) from the Contract Room in Portfolio Financials.

Background

The 'Send to Accounts Payable' feature in Portfolio Financials allows you to send invoices that have been submitted and approved in Procore directly to your accounts payable address. Accounts Payable (AP) addresses are set up on a per-building basis, meaning all invoices submitted on projects within a certain building will be sent to the same AP address. If you are interested in setting up this feature on your Portfolio Financials account, please reach out to your Procore point of contact to help get you started.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Limited' access to the project or higher.
      Note: Users with 'Limited' permissions must have access to the contract, or access to the relevant Invoice Room. 
  • Additional Information:
    • If you have the 'Consolidate Approval and Send to AP' feature enabled, you can approve and send your invoice at the same time. See Consolidate Approval and Send to AP  in the Steps section to follow the relevant steps. 

Prerequisites
