Update Project Cost Codes for Export to Viewpoint® Spectrum®


To update a project's cost codes and cost type assignments in preparation for export to Viewpoint® Spectrum®.


If your company has enabled the ERP Integrations tool and a user has added a new project cost codes to the Spectrum Standard Cost Code List, a user must send those updates to the ERP Integrations tool so the changes can be reviewed by an accounting approver.

Important! Before you can export any contracts or contract change orders to Spectrum, you must always update the project's cost codes first. 
The accounting approver then reviews the new cost codes and category assignments in the ERP Integrations tool and then updates the codes as described in the steps below.  

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • 'Standard' or 'Admin' on the company's ERP Integrations tool.
    • The person's account must be granted the 'Can Push to Accounting' privilege in the Company Directory.
      Note: To submit a request to be granted this privilege, your company's Procore Administrator must submit a request to your Procore point of contact. This privilege can only be granted to individuals by Procore. 
  • Prerequisites:
    • At least one new cost code has been added to the ERP-synced project in Procore. 
  • Additional Information:
    • If a new cost code that already has a different category assignment in Procore is approved/updated, both category assignments will be tied to the cost code.
    • Existing cost code descriptions in Spectrum will not be overwritten. For example, if the cost code already has a description in Viewpoint® Spectrum® that's different from the Standard Cost Code's description that appears in Procore, the cost code's description in Spectrum will stay the same.
