Email Direct Costs


To email direct costs from the Direct Costs tool to those who need to be aware of the details of the item.


The email functionality on the Direct Costs tool allows you to send the details of a direct cost to team members' email inbox. This might be helpful if team members would like a copy of the direct cost outside of Procore or if you'd like to begin a private discussion about the direct cost with a single person or group of people.
