(Beta): Modernized Experience for the Prime Contracts Tool

To provide you with a modernized interface and optimizations to improve your ability to create and manage contracts more efficiently, Procore will start releasing a Beta version of a new Prime Contracts experience. The new beta experience will gradually be made available over the coming weeks to companies using Procore's Project Financials tools. Users will also be able to switch between the current experience and the beta experience of the Prime Contracts tool until it is released for general availability. During the beta, you can also provide Procore with your feedback about the experience.

The modernized experience also lays the groundwork for additional enhancements to the Prime Contracts tool in the future. For this release, the updates include:

  • A new experience for creating, editing, and viewing a prime contract. Procore has redesigned the Prime Contracts tool's user interface to make it easier to create, edit, and view a prime contract and its Schedule of Values (SOV)  A new card layout improves how information is organized and allows you to create and edit contracts more efficiently. You can also expand and collapse sections. The SOV has been moved from its own tab to the General tab and you can choose to update it in wide-screen mode or using the more convenient, narrow-screen view. Procore has also redesigned the attachment controls, to allow you to upload documents from your computer or network and to attach items from other Procore tools.
  • Updated tabbed pages on prime contracts. Procore has also updated the Change Orders, Invoices, Change History, Financial Markup, and Advanced Settings tabs on prime contracts.
  • Compatible with the new custom fields and configurable fieldsets release. The new beta experience is designed to work with Procore's recent custom fields and configurable fieldsets release. To see a list of fields that are now configurable with the Prime Contracts tool, see Which fields in the Prime Contracts tool can be configured as required, optional, or hidden?

The new beta experience will be available to all Procore customers who have purchased Procore's Project Financials tools. This includes companies that are using one of Procore's integrated ERP systems
