To change the Ball In Court (BIC) person on a submittal using the project's Submittals tool.
In Procore, being designated as the Ball In Court (BIC) person indicates that an action is required by the designee. For example, when you first send out a submittal for approval, the members of the first group in a submittal workflow are automatically assigned the 'Ball In Court' responsibility. When all required members of that group submit a response (e.g., Approved, Approved as Noted, etc.), the 'Ball In Court' designation proceeds to the next group of approvers in the submittal workflow's sequence. The designation changes in sequential order until all required submitter(s) and approver(s) have submitted their response. Note: The 'Ball In Court' concept is also used with the project's RFIs tool (see RFIs).
If an approver or submitter in a submittal's workflow needs to change a response that they already sent (or that was input on their behalf), a user with 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Submittals tool needs to first move the Ball In Court back to the approver or submitter.
Things to Consider

- 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Submittals tool.
NoteThe following tutorial references a version of the Submittal Workflow table that may not be available in your current Procore experience. See Change the Ball in Court on a Submittal (Legacy View) for information on how to perform this task if your Submittal Workflow table looks different than the version referenced below.
- Navigate to the project's Submittals tool.
- Click View next to the submittal you want to change the Ball In Court (BIC) for in the Items list.
- In the 'Submittal Workflow' table, click the vertical ellipsis (⋮) and click Set Step as BIC at the end of the numbered row above the user's name or group of users' names that you want to make the current BIC.
This moves the BIC assignment to the selected user or group of users and updates their response to 'Pending'.
