Add Invoice Contacts to a Purchase Order or Subcontract (Legacy)

 Legacy Content

This page details the legacy experience for the Project level Commitments tool. 


To add an invoice contact to a purchase order or subcontract in a Procore project.


To provide downstream collaborators with permissions to submit new subcontractor invoices in a Procore project, an invoice administrator must add an invoice contact to their commitment. If a collaborator has more than one commitment on your Procore project, administrators can add a different invoice contact to each commitment. Alternatively, your company's Procore Administrator can set a default invoice contact in the downstream collaborator's company record. 

Things to Consider


  • Add a user account for the invoice contact to the Company Directory. If you need to create a user account for the invoice contact, see:
    • Add a User Account to the Project Directory. This automatically adds the user account to both the Project and Company Directory.
    • Add a User Account to the Company Directory. Then complete the steps in Add an Existing User to Projects in Your Company's Procore Account to ensure the user is added to your project. 
      • When adding or updating the invoice contact's user account in the Company Directory, ensure that:
        • The user account in the Company level Directory tool is set to Active.
        • The email address entered for the user account is valid.
        • The 'Send this User Messages' setting in the user account must be turned ON by selecting the Via Email option from the drop-down list.  
      • When adding or updating the 'Contact Information' on the company record's 'General' tab in the Company Directory, the user must be listed in the 'Users' tab to appear as a selection in the Company Directory tool's 'Invoice Contacts' drop-down list.
      • The users that you designate as 'Invoice Contacts' in the Company Directory are then available in the 'Invoice Contacts' drop-down list on a purchase order or subcontract.
  • Verify that the user account is listed in the 'Users' tab of the company record for the 'Contact Company' in the Company Directory. For details, see Add a Company to the Company Directory
  • Enable the 'Notify Subcontractors when Invoices are Approved' setting. See Configure Settings: Commitments.
  • Complete the steps in Create a Purchase Order or Create a Subcontract.
