Import a ProEst Estimate for the Budget SOV

Objective

To import a project's Budget's Schedule of Values (SOV) into Procore by uploading an exported XML file from ProEst.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Budget tool
  • Prerequisite:
    • The Import ProEst XML field will only appear in the Procore application when the Budget is unlocked.  See "Unlock a Budget" in the See Also section below.
  • Additional Information:
    • By default, Procore's ProEst integration is not turned on and enabled for new Procore accounts.  To enable ProEst, your company's Procore Administrator can submit a request to your company's Procore point of contact. 
    • Project data is not synchronized between Procore and ProEst. If you make any changes in ProEst, you must upload those revisions to Procore.
    • If you need assistance with the import process, send an email request to imports@procore.com.
