Submittals: Integrated PDF Markup for Submittal Attachments

Procore has redesigned the attachment viewer in the project's Submittals tool to provide users with enhanced markup capabilities. Prior to this update, users who wanted to apply markups to an attachment were required to download the attached file, open it a third-party markup program (i.e., Adobe® Acrobat® or Bluebeam® Studio), and then upload the revision with the markup to a submittal. 

With this new feature, users who are in the submittal's workflow (or users who have been granted 'Admin' level permission on the project's Submittals tool), will have the ability to add markup and stamp submittals in Procore. 

How do I get an early access preview of this feature?

If you are a Procore client with sandbox account, an early access preview of the new Integrated PDF Markup is now available on any company account with 'Sandbox' in the title. This gives users an opportunity to test the new features before deploying the feature to your production account. If your company does not have a sandbox account and you would like to have the feature enabled on another test project, please contact your Procore point of contact. 

Why is this important?

In response to user feedback, this feature also provides the following features and benefits:

  • Ability to upload a customizable company stamp. Users can now upload and apply your company's official stamp to shop drawings and other PDF attachments. 
  • Ability to add a blank page to the PDF Document. Users can now add a blank page to the beginning of the PDF document, likely for comments and stamps. 
  • Eliminate unwanted extra PDF download/upload steps. Users no longer have to take extra steps of downloading files in order to add markups. 
  • Eliminate the need to use third-party markup applications. Users can now open and apply markups directly to a PDF file without leaving the Procore web application.
  • Single source of information. Users can see the most current changes to the attachment via our new Attachment Manager to ensure the project team is working off the same document.
