    Notes:
    • You must work with your Procore Integration Implementation Specialist to add divisions prior to setting up Viewpoint Vista integration.

Unsupported Features

The following features are not supported at the current time.

  • The Viewpoint Vista integration does NOT support Procore vendor types. 
  • The use of the SPACE in cost codes. Whenever a phase code includes a SPACE, it is imported into Procore with an underscore (_) character.
  • Non-sectioned cost codes (e.g., '1234567' where the first part of the cost code does NOT denote a division). Similarly, you must also have a Standard Cost Code List.
  • Cost code structures using both a dot (.) and dash (-) delimiter scheme. (e.g., 01-20.05).
  • Non-use of categories. Categories must be enabled and a standard category list must be used.

Common Questions

  • How do Procore and Viewpoint Vista connect?

    The two systems connect with the Ryvit Service. This is a lightweight Windows service that is installed in your environment during the implementation process. It utilizes the HTTP Secure (HTTPS) protocol and an internal Representational State Transfer (REST) API to:

    • Authenticate and verify user access permission.
    • Securely package and synchronize data between Procore and Ryvit Service.
  • How often can I sync data between Viewpoint Vista and Procore?

    When your company has enabled the ERP Integrations tool and configured it to work with Viewpoint Vista, automatic synchronization occurs once every hour by default. The auto-sync schedule cannot be changed. 

    To learn about the types of data that is synced, see What data is synced between Vista Viewpoint and Procore? 

  • Who can authorize what? 
    Within Procore, any data exports to Viewpoint Vista must be approved by your company's designated accounting approver(s). Your company's Procore Administrator decides which users in your organization have accounting approver privileges and must submit a request to your Procore point of contact to enable this option for each approver.
