Create a Transmittal

Objective

To create a transmittal using the project's Transmittals tool.

Background

In Procore, a transmittal is a record that acts much like a packing slip to record the documents, drawings, goods, materials, samples, supplies that are transferred between entities on a project.

Using the project's Transmittals tool, you can create a record of project information that has been sent to others via fax and shipping channels. When you create a transmittal and email a copy of it to your recipients, all of the information is captured and stored with your Procore project, including the names of the sender, recipient, and any relevant dates. For example, perhaps a user's email system is down and the only way to send an official response is via fax or a phone call. In such cases, you would want to create a transmittal in order to keep track of the correspondence, so a historical record is available for audit purposes in Procore. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission
    • To create a transmittal, 'Standard' or 'Admin' level permission on the project's Transmittals tool.
    • To be added to the 'To' or 'Cc' fields of a transmittal, the person must exist in the Project Directory (see Add a Person to the Project Directory).  

Steps

Create a Transmittal

  1. Navigate to the project's Transmittals tool.
    The Transmittals page appears. 
  2. In the top right corner, click Create Transmittal.



    This reveals the New Transmittal page.
  3. Continue with these steps:

Add General Information to the Transmittal

  1. In the New Transmittal page, scroll to the 'General Information' area:



     
  2. Complete the data entry as follows:
    • Number: Procore automatically assigns numbers to new transmittals sequential order. You may change this number as desired. However, duplicate numbers are not permitted.

    • Subject: A descriptive subject for the transmittal.

    • To: Select people or distribution groups from the project's Directory. This action assigns the transmittal to the named individuals. If you choose to click the Create and Email button (or 'Save and Email' if you are an 'Admin' user editing an existing transmittal), the system will automatically email a notification about the transmittal to the recipients. 

    • CC: Select people or distribution groups from the project's Directory. This action carbon copies the transmittal to the named individuals. If you choose to click the Create and Email button (or 'Save and Email' if you are an 'Admin' user editing an existing transmittal), the system will automatically email a notification about the transmittal to the recipients.

    • Sent Via: Select Attached to attach an item from Procore to the transmittal or Under Separate Cover. If you select Under Separate Cover, you can also select one of these options: Email, US Mail, Hand Delivery, FedEx, UPS, DHL, Express Mail, Fax, and Other

    • Private: Mark this checkbox to hide the transmittal from everyone except 'Admin' level users, designated users in the 'To' and 'Cc' fields, and members of the default distribution group (see Configure Advanced Settings: Transmittals).

    • Submitted For: Mark the checkboxes that correspond to the reason the transmittal is being submitted. You have these choices: Approval, Your Use, As Requested, Review and Comment, or Further Processing.

    • Action as Noted: Mark the checkboxes that correspond to the desired action. You have these choices: Out for Signature, Approved as Submitted, Approved as Noted, Submit, Resubmitted, Returned, Returned for Corrections, Resubmit, Due By, Received, Received as Noted, and Sent Date. (Note: It is recommended that you work with your project's management to define the proper use for each of these default actions in your environment).
