Create a Custom Submittals Report


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


There are common reports that are used on all projects and some that are project specific, either due to the uniqueness of project, owner, or project team managing the job. There are also personal reports that project engineers and project managers use to meet day-to-day business goals that should not be shared and visible to all members of their team. Procore's custom submittal reports functionality makes it easy to organize your submittals into relevant reports for your both personal use as well as for company or project-specific needs.
