To create a direct cost (an invoice, expense, or payroll).
Direct Costs are costs that are incurred that are not associated with commitments such as general conditions and self-performed work. The different types of direct costs that users can create in Procore are invoices, expenses, and payroll. Invoices are received from a vendor and is a cost not tied to a commitment with that vendor. Expenses are used to track costs that are allocated from the company to the project, for things such as computers, phones, internal equipment rental, etc. Payrolls can track monthly payroll costs, and classify these costs by cost codes so that the payroll amounts reflect each month on the budget. Users will see the direct costs they create in the "Direct Costs" column in the budget for that line item (as long as the status is not 'Draft').
