Sync Viewpoint® Vista™ Payments with Payments Issued in Commitments


To sync bill payments made in Viewpoint® Vista™ with the Payments Issued tab in Procore commitments. 


If your company has enabled the ERP Integrations tool and configured it to work with Viewpoint® Vista™, your project's accountants can enter bill payments in Viewpoint® Vista™ against bills synced from Procore and then export those payments into Procore. This feature automatically imports the specified Viewpoint® Vista™ payments into the Payments Issued tab for subcontracts and purchase orders in the Commitments tool. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • To view payments made against subcontractor invoice, 'Read-Only' level permission or higher on the project's Commitments tool. 
    • To change the configuration settings in the ERP Integrations tool, 'Admin' level permission on the ERP Integrations tool. 
  • Requirements:
    • The ERP Integrations tool must be configured for Viewpoint® Vista™. 
    • The Commitments tool must be active on the desired project(s). 
    • The Invoice Tool must be active.  
    • The Payments Issued tab must also be enabled in the project's Commitments tool. 
  • Prerequisites:
    • The subcontractor invoice for which a payment is being made must first be exported to Viewpoint® Vista™. 
  • Supported Items:
    The sync process supports the following payments:
    • Check and Credit Card payments in Viewpoint® Vista™.
    • Full and partial payments in Viewpoint® Vista™. 
    • Changes made to a payment after it is synced. For example, voiding a check. 
  • Limitations:
    • Invoices that were created in Procore and sent to Viewpoint® Vista™ as AP Unapproved invoices are out of scope. 
    • There are no special considerations being made for retainage payments as part of this feature.    
    • Voided payments in Viewpoint® Vista™:
      • When voiding payments in Viewpoint® Vista™ you will be presented with a check box called “Record CM Reference as Void - number cannot be reused“. When NOT checking this box, instead of updating the payment header as “Voided“, Viewpoint® Vista™ will delete the payment (check number) from the database.  If the above box is not checked one of the following actions must be taken to void this payment in Procore
        • Contact Support to request that they unlink the payment from the ERP. Once the payment is unlinked, the user can delete the payment record from Procore. 
        • Manually create an additional an payment record in Procore with a negative amount to cancel out the original amount, and a note stating “VOIDED”. Please note that this is not an update to the original payment, but rather an additional payment record
  • Additional Information:
    • Users cannot edit synced payments in Procore. 
    • Synced payments deleted in Viewpoint® Vista™ are not deleted automatically from Procore. To delete a synced payment, contact support. Include details such as project number, commitment number, and invoice number, as well as details about the specific payment.
