Background

The Transmittals tool lets you keep a record of project information that has been sent to others via fax and shipping. When you create and send a transmittal, all of the transmittals information is captured and stored with your Procore project, including the names of the sender, recipient, and relevant dates. For example, perhaps a user's email system is down and the only way to send an official response is via fax or a phone call. In such cases, transmittals can be used to properly keep track of these correspondences inside of Procore for historical record and audit purposes.
