Construction Platform Release Notes
Below are notable changes for the Procore web application for the week ending Friday, March 6, 2020.
Permission Template Type Name Changes
Permission template types have been renamed. Company permission templates, which can be assigned to any user on any project, are now called global permission templates. Project permission templates, which can be assigned to any user in the corresponding project's Directory, are now called project specific permission templates.
New Permissions Tool
With the new Permissions tool, you can now create and manage both global and project specific (a.k.a. company and project) permission templates for Project level tools.
No notable changes.
Record Witness Statements on Procore's iOS and Android Apps
Users can now take audio recordings of witnesses stating their first-hand accounts of incidents, using the Incidents tool Procore iOS and Android apps. Playback for the recordings can be accessed within an incident's witness statement section on either of the mobile apps and on the Procore web app. See Add a Witness Statement to an Incident (iOS) and Add a Witness Statement to an Incident (Android).
Updates to Punch List Item PDF Export
Additional fields from a punch list item are now included in a PDF export of the punch list item. See Export a Punch List Item as a PDF.
Real-Time Labor Costing with Field Productivity
For Field Productivity clients collecting timecard entries in the field, Procore has released an update to help self-performing contractors minimize the risks of budget overrun due to labor costs. The labor costing updates provide project manager's with the ability to eliminate wait time associated with inputting timesheet updates. To learn more, see Project Financials: Real-Time Labor Costing with Field Productivity.
Enhancements for Unit-Based Financials
Procore is excited to announce the general release of several new enhancements for unit-based financials. This update, formerly known as the Unit of Measure (UOM) beta program, was tested by beta program participants throughout 2019. These enhancements provide you with the ability to input unit-based quantities on your budget's line items and to automatically calculate the 'Original Budget' amount. See Project Financials: Enhancements for Unit-Based Financials
Consistent & Custom Units of Measure
If your organization uses a Unit of Measure (UOM) that is not already in Procore's Unit of Measure Master List, you can add a custom unit of measure. For example, you might want to add the unit of measurement: gallon (gal) to give your users the ability to add items for fuel and/or liquid costs in one of Procore's Project Financials tools. With this update, you'll greater flexibility and improved consistency, particularly for users in specialized trades who require additional units of measure. See Add a Unit of Measure to the Unit of Measure Master List.
Include Cost Forecast Data in Budget Exports to Sage 300 CRE
For companies that have integrated Procore with Sage 300 CRE®, you can import your real-time actual cost data from Sage 300 CRE® into Procore's Budget tool. This lets project team's leverage their Sage 300 CRE® cost data with the 'Estimated Cost' value in a Procore budget to calculate the budget's 'Estimated Cost at Completion' and 'Forecast to Complete' values. This ability provides your project's accounting team with the complimentary benefit of being able to access Procore's 'Estimated Cost at Completion' and 'Forecast to Complete' values in Sage 300 CRE®. See ERP Integrations: Include Cost Forecast Data in Budget Exports to Sage 300 CRE.
Assign Default Cost Types to Timecard Entries
Users with 'Admin' level permissions on the company's Timesheets tool can now select and assign default cost types to timecard entries. This allows for real-time visibility into labor costs on the project's Budget tool. See Configure Advanced Settings: Company Level Timesheets.
