 In Beta
This information is intended for Procore customers participating in the Subcontractor Invoice Beta program. For details about this release, see Financial Management: (Beta) New Admin View for Subcontractor Invoices
If you have the generally available version of subcontractor invoices, follow the steps in Review a Subcontractor Invoice as an Administrator instead of the ones below.


To approve or reject the line items on a subcontractor invoice as an invoice administrator using the project's Invoicing tool. 


If you are responsible for managing your project's subcontractor invoices and ensuring the invoices you receive are accurate, you have the ability to approve or reject the invoice line items individually. To navigate to the subcontractor invoice in Procore, your Procore user account will need to be assigned the appropriate permissions. Once those permissions are assigned, you can navigate to the invoice using either the project's Commitments tool or the project's Invoicing tool. This tutorial shows you how to review your project's invoices using the Invoicing tool. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • To review a subcontractor invoice as an admin from the Invoicing tool, 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Commitments tool. 
      • This page details steps that are performed in the project's Invoicing tool.
        • Access to invoices with the Invoicing tool is managed by the permissions assigned to users on the Commitments and/or Prime Contracts tool. 
      • If you are a collaborator (for example, an invoice contact for a subcontracting company that is performing work for a general contractor managing your contract in Procore), your ability to perform invoice-related tasks is determined by the project team that controls these settings for your Procore user account: 
        • Your user account's permissions on the project's Commitments and/or Prime Contracts tool.
        • Your membership on the 'Private' list of a specific prime contract, purchase order, or subcontract.
        • Your designation as an 'Invoice Contact' on a prime contract, purchase order, or commitment.
      • To learn more about permissions for specific tasks that can be performed with the Invoicing tool, see Permissions: Invoicing.
  • Additional Information:
    • Invoice administrators can review line items on any invoice and are NOT limited to reviewing only most recent invoice. However, it is important to keep in mind that rejecting a line item will NOT change the value of the invoice.
