To respond for a request for action on a submittal as a subcontractor on a construction project (i.e., to upload attachments and respond to a general contractor's request for action on a submittal).
If the general contractor for a construction project assigns you to 'Submitter' role in a submittal workflow, it means you will be required to perform an action on a submittal. For example, you might be required to upload drawings, plans, or other documents as attachments to the submittal, in order to fulfill the submittal requirements and then proceed with the design review.
Typically, submittals in Procore are created by a submittal manager (however, the submittal manager role can be reassigned). That person names the submittal item and then completes the basic data entry on the submittal. That person also designates members of the project team as either a 'Submitter' or 'Approver' on the submittal workflow.
If you are designated as a 'Submitter' (typically, a subcontractor), Procore will send you an automated email message, with the subject line 'Action Required on a Submittal', to alert you that the general contractor requires your response on the submittal.
Depending on the specific requirements of your agreement, you may be required to upload attachments (i.e., documents, drawings, plans, etc.) to the submittal, which will later be sent to the design team for review and approval. To assist you with this process, the email notification (see illustration below) contains a View Online link. It may also contain attachments that you might need to download and review before responding to their request for action.
