Objective

To send data from the project's Budget tool to your company's ERP Integrations tool so it can then be accepted or rejected for export to Viewpoint Vista by an accounting approver

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • 'Standard' or 'Read Only' level permission on the Project level Budget tool and the user must be granted the 'Send and Retrieve Budgets from ERP' granular permission on the Budget tool. See Grant Granular Permissions in a Permission Template.
    • 'Admin' level permission on the Project level Budget tool.
      OR
  • Prerequisites:
  • Restrictions:
    • After exporting a budget from Procore to Viewpoint Vista, the import function (i.e., from Viewpoint Vista to Procore) will no longer be available for that job/budget.
    • The ability to unlock the Procore budget (see Unlock a Budget), resend data to Viewpoint Vista, add budget line items, and create budget modifications will be disabled until:
      • The export from Procore to Viewpoint Vista is complete and the exported entries have been manually posted to Viewpoint Vista using its Job Cost function. See your Viewpoint Vista Help system for instructions.
      • The synced data is visible in the Job Costs Report. See View Job Costs Report
        Note: After entries have been posted in the Viewpoint Vista Job Cost function, the data will sync back to Procore according to the set schedule (see View the Sync Schedule Page for Vista Viewpoint).
  • Additional Information:
    • Typically, a project manager performs this task.

Steps

  1. Navigate to the project's Budget tool. 
    This reveals the Budget page. 
  2. In the 'Budget' page, under 'Cost Code Detail', review the budget's line items.
    Note: If your budget contains sub job information, it is listed in the budget 
  3. When you are ready to send your budget to the ERP Integrations tool for acceptance by an accounting approver, click Send to ERP (or, if you've previously sent the budget, click Re-send to ERP).
     
    If you have not sent the budget… If you have previously sent the budget…

Notes:

  • If the Send to ERP (or Re-send to ERP) button is grayed out and unavailable, hover your cursor over the question mark (?) to learn why. Typically, its because the project's ERP data has not yet been synced or because the item does not meet the minimum requirements (see above). 
  • If the Retrieve from ERP button appears, the data has already been sent to the ERP Integrations tool. 
  1. After you sync the budget for the first time, you can also sync an updated Procore budget to Viewpoint Vista:

The system sends the original budget and budget modifications to the ERP Integrations tool where it can be accepted or rejected for export to Viewpoint Vista by an accounting approver.
