Integration by Procore: Accept or Reject a Project for Export to Viewpoint® Spectrum®

Objective

To accept or reject a new project created in Procore as an accounting approver. Upon acceptance, the project is then exported from Procore and added to Viewpoint® Spectrum® as a new 'Job.' 

Background

If a user sends a Procore project to the ERP Integrations tool for acceptance by an accounting approver, the approver has the option to 'Accept' or 'Reject' the project for export to Spectrum as follows:

  • Accept. An 'Accept' response exports the project from Procore and creates a new 'Job' in your Spectrum system. 
    OR
  • Reject. A 'Reject' response removes the project from the ERP Integrations tool's 'Ready to Export' list and places it into an editable state in the project's Admin tool for updating (see Add or Edit General Project Information).

If there is at least one (1) item awaiting accounting acceptance in the ERP Integrations tool's 'Ready to Export' view, users who have been granted the privilege detailed above will receive one automated email notification perday (e.g., with the Subject Line "ERP Integrations Daily Summary) until all of the in the 'Ready to Export' view have been accepted or rejected.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Standard' or 'Admin' level permission on the ERP Integrations tool.
      AND
    • The person's account must be granted the 'Can Push to Accounting' privilege in the Company Directory. To request to enable this privilege, submit a request to your Procore point of contact. This must be enabled for you by Procore. 
  • Prerequisites:
  • Additional Information:
    • To export a project from Procore, it must include these required fields: Division, Custom, Price Type, and Taxable (must be YES or NO).
