Email a Purchase Order or Subcontract


To send a purchase order or subcontract by email.  


You can email a purchase order or subcontract to a downstream contractor when you want to share the accepted scope and Schedule of Values (SOV).  When selecting a recipient, you can choose any user from the project's Directory tool. However, keep in mind that in order to log on or view the purchase order or subcontract in Procore, the recipient must have the appropriate access permissions to view it.
