Send a Commitment to ERP Integrations for Accounting Acceptance

Objective

To send a commitment to the ERP Integrations tool to be accepted for export to the integrated ERP system by an accounting approver

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • 'Admin' permissions on the project's Commitments tool.
  • Prerequisites:
    Before you can send a commitment to the ERP Integrations tool, it must satisfy these prerequisites:
    • ID Number. Must be fewer characters that the limitation set in Yardi Voyager®.
      Note: Your Procore integration implementation specialist can set this limitation within Procore itself, so that your users are restricted from surpassing it. If this has not been configured, then there will be no length limitation in Procore, only that in Yardi Voyager®. 
    • Title. For Yardi Voyager®, the title must be 35 characters or less.
      Note: You cannot save a commitment that does not meet this criteria.
    • Start Date. For Yardi Voyager®, you must enter a Start Date for the commitment.
      Note: You cannot save a commitment that does not meet this criteria.
    • Contract Company. Must be linked to a synced Yardi Voyager® vendor. See Link a Yardi Voyager® Vendor to a Procore Company.
    • Status. For subcontracts, the status must be set to 'Approved' or 'Complete.'
    • Schedule of Values (SOV). Must include at least one (1) line item, and all line items must contain Yardi Voyager® cost codes.
  • Additional Information:
    • If desired, you can configure your default settings to use your Procore Contract Number for an exported commitment's Yardi Voyager® ID field. If enabled, the Yardi Voyager® ID will auto-populate with the Procore Contract Number, however, the value can still be edited (Note: Enabling this setting requires 'Admin' level permission on the ERP Integrations tool. See Configure General ERP Settings).
    • Typically, the project manager sends a commitment for accounting acceptance and another user (typically an accountant who has been granted the 'Can Push to Accounting' privilege will then accept the commitment for export to the ERP system or reject it to return the commitment to an editable state in the Commitments tool. 

Steps

  1. Navigate to the project's Commitments tool. 
    This reveals the Commitments page.
  2. Locate the desired commitment and click Edit

    For companies using the ERP Integrations tool, color-coded icons and ribbons appear in relevant areas of Procore. This visually highlights your system's ERP integration data, to help you quickly identify its current state.

  3. Modify the commitment as needed.
    (Notes:
    • Make sure your specified values do not exceed the Yardi Voyager® character limits for each field.
    • Important! Before you can export a commitment from Procore to Yardi Voyager®, it must satisfy the following requirements: 
      • ID Number. Must be fewer characters that the limitation set in Yardi Voyager®.
        Note: Your Procore integration implementation specialist can set this limitation within Procore itself, so that your users are restricted from surpassing it. If this has not been configured, then there will be no length limitation in Procore, only that in Yardi Voyager®. 
      • Title. For Yardi Voyager®, the title must be 35 characters or less. Longer entries must be shortened in Procore before they will be sent to Yardi. 
      • Contract Company. Must be linked to a synced Yardi Voyager® vendor. See Link a Yardi Voyager® Vendor to a Procore Company.
      • Status. For subcontracts, the status must be set to 'Approved' or 'Complete.'
      • Schedule of Values (SOV). Must include at least one (1) line item, and all line items must contain Yardi Voyager® cost codes.

    Click Send to ERP.

    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, it's 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. 
    • The system sends the commitment to the ERP Integrations tool and locks it in the Commitments tool (i.e., to prevent users from editing it) before the accounting approver can review it:
      • Contract Company. You cannot edit the company.
      • Title. You cannot edit the commitment's title.
      • Status. You cannot edit the status of the commitment.
      • Default Retainage. You cannot edit the percentage value in the commitment.
