Complete a Commitment Contract with DocuSign®


To complete a purchase order or subcontract with DocuSign®.


After you create a purchase order or subcontract, Procore users with a DocuSign® account can prepare a DocuSign® envelope for the commitment and send it to the appropriate recipient to request a signature. When you successfully send a document out for signature, the status of the commitment changes to 'Out for Signature'. 

If you are the recipient of a signature request, you do not need a DocuSign® account. However, if you do have a DocuSign® account and the email address matches the email you use in Procore, a copy of any documents you sign will be saved in your DocuSign® account. After all of the required signatures are collected in DocuSign®, Procore changes the status of the commitment to 'Approved.'
