Complete a Commitment Change Order with DocuSign®


To complete the electronic signature process for a commitment change order using the Procore + DocuSign® integration. 


After you create commitment change order for a commitment, Procore users with a DocuSign® account can prepare a DocuSign® envelope and send the Procore document to the appropriate recipient(s) to request a signature.

If you are the recipient of a signature request, you do not need a DocuSign® account. However, if you do have a DocuSign® account and the email address matches the email you use in Procore, a copy of any documents you sign will be saved in your DocuSign® account. See Do I need a DocuSign© account?

    • 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Commitments tool.

  • A PDF copy of the change order is automatically added to the 'Add Documents to Envelope' section.

Add Recipients to the Envelope

To add recipients to the envelope:

  1. Under 'Add Recipients to the Envelope', keep the default recipient blocks, their names, and their email addresses. This data is added to the envelope automatically by the Procore+DocuSign® integration. If the data was specified in Procore, the values in the 'Name' and 'Email Address' fields of the recipient blocks correspond to these fields in Procore:
    • Subcontractor. This is the individual designated in the 'Architect/Engineer' field of the commitment associated with the subcontractor invoice. 
    • General Contractor. This the individual who is designated in the 'Primary Contact' field in the Project Directory for the company designated in the 'Contractor'' field of the commitment associated with the subcontractor invoice. 
      • Want to add, change, or remove recipients DocuSign®?  The options in the 'Add Recipients to the Envelope' section are developed and maintained by DocuSign®. If you change the recipient information in DocuSign®, keep in mind that any changes made in DocuSign® do NOT update in Procore and can lead to unwanted results. To ensure the integration works as designed, Procore recommends keeping the recipient fields that were added by the integration. To learn how to use DocuSign®, Procore recommends reviewing the content on

Preview the Signature Fields & Send the Envelope

The next step is to preview the signature fields on the DocuSign® document. The signature fields correspond to specific roles in Procore. For example, the General Contractor and Subcontractor who are parties on the contract associated with this change order. The Procore + DocuSign® integration automatically adds these fields to the DocuSign® envelope. 

  1. Scroll to the bottom of the DocuSign® document, to view the signature fields. An example is pictured below. 

  2. In the DocuSign® document, leave the signature fields in their default position(s). This ensures the Procore + DocuSign® collection process works as designed.
