Financial Management: Q1 2023 Release
This announcement provides information about updates to Procore's Financials Management tools in Q1 2023.
Quarterly Product Release Webinar
In the Q1 2023 edition of Procore's Quarterly Product Release webinar, our product experts provide you with a closer look at the new features.
To learn more about the new features for the Q1 2023 update, see below.
Bulk Create Commitment Change Orders
To reduce the hours spent grouping multiple lines to create multiple change orders across commitment contracts, Procore is adding the ability to create commitment change orders in bulk to the Change Events tool. This is helpful when a change event impacts multiple commitment contracts and allows users to bulk-select multiple change event line items to create commitment change orders across multiple commitments.
After initiating the bulk creation process, Procore generates the new change order(s) and places them into the 'Draft' status. It's important to leave the page open until the automatic creation process is complete. To learn more, see Bulk Create Commitment Change Orders from a Change Event.
Record Changes to Production Quantities in Change Events
For companies using the Project Financials and Workforce Management tools with the Procore Labor Productivity Cost Budget View you can log any additional production quantities or hours associated with your change event line items. This is helpful when project owners request out-of-scope design changes after your project's budget is locked.
To enhance the user experience, Procore is relocating the 'Production Quantities' tab to the change event create/edit page. To learn how to update production quantities in the new card, see Record Changes to Production Quantities in a Change Event.
Prevent Budget Changes and Potential Change Orders on the Same Change Event Line Item
For customers using Project Financials and who have completed the migration to the new budget changes feature from the legacy budget modifications feature, Procore is adding a new setting to prevent change event line items from having both a revenue impact and budget impact. When the new setting is turned ON, you can restrict a change event line item so it can only be associated with one other financial object at a given point in time — either a budget change or a prime contract change order.
To learn about the new setting, see Prevent Budget Changes and Prime Change Orders on the Same Change Event Line Item in the Configure Settings: Change Events tutorial.
Keeping Change Objects in Sync
For Procore customers using the Change Orders tool, Procore is adding a new option that lets users create a change event line item from a line item on a change order's Schedule of Values. See Create a New Change Event Line Item from an SOV Line Item. This provides users with multiple ways to Link a Schedule of Values Line Item to a Change Event Line Item to ensure that your project's related financial objects remain in sync.
In addition, when change events are linked to change orders they will now have the ability to edit those change event line items as long as the change order is in an ‘editable state’. When users update a budget code in one of Procore's Project Financials tools, Procore automatically updates that budget code on corresponding financial line items, as long as those line items are in an editable state. To learn more, see How are financial line items and budget codes updated across change objects?
Migrating to Budget Changes From Budget Modifications
For customers using the Financial Management tools, Procore introduced a new Budget Changes feature on October 16, 2022. Budget Changes eliminates reliance on the Prime Contracts tool by allowing you to implement workflows and approvals to guide the budget change process. Budget Changes resolves customer-reported issues with legacy Budget Modifications and harmoniously connects with the Change Events tool to create one place to track and manage all impacts of change across your project.
Work Breakdown Structure Enhancements
Procore is enhancing its Work Breakdown Structure feature to provide users with 'Admin' level permissions on the Project Admin tool with the ability to deactivate project-level budget codes (see Deactivate Budget Codes on a Project). This prevents team members from assigning unneeded or unwanted codes to your project's financial line items. You can also reactivate codes as needed. See Activate Budget Codes on a Project. In addition to these updates, Procore is also adding the ability to edit your project's budget code descriptions. See Edit Budget Code Descriptions on a Project.
To learn more, see Work Breakdown Structure: Activate & Deactivate Project Level Budget Codes.
Updated DocuSign Banners
For companies using the Procore + DocuSign© integration, Procore is refreshing the user-facing banners in Procore to provide users with an improved experience. This includes adding a new Refresh button to several banners to give users with linked DocuSign® accounts the ability to send their own refresh requests. This synchronizes Procore with the most current information available from DocuSign®. After submitting a refresh request, users must wait five (5) minutes before performing another refresh.

New Procore + QuickBooks® Online Connector
|With Procore + QuickBooks® Online, you can align project management and accounting using Procore’s seamless integration with QuickBooks® Online. Synchronize cost data for all of your projects in one location, standardize your accounting processes, and take your business to the next level. To learn more, see QuickBooks® Online: Detailed Data Mapping.
Import Prime Contracts with Project Financials + CMiC Connector
For customers using the Project Financials + CMiC, users can now import Potential Change Items (PCIs) created in CMiC into Procore. This eliminates time and effort spent performing double-entry in both systems and integrates the data with Procore's Prime Contact Change Orders (PCCOs).
