Forward a Correspondence Item by Email


To create an email that contains information about a correspondence item and send the email to other Procore users from the Project level Correspondence tool.


The email functionality on the Correspondence tool allows you to send an email outside of the emails that are automatically generated such as when a correspondence item is created. See Who receives correspondence item emails and push notifications to learn more about automatic correspondence emails.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Standard' level permissions or higher on the item's correspondence type.
  • Additional Information:
    • You can only email the correspondence item to a user that exists in the Project Directory.
    • If a person is missing from the list, ask your project administrator (i.e. a user with 'Admin' permissions on the project's Directory tool) to add the user.
      Note: The newly added user does NOT have to accept the invitation to join the project before they become a selectable option in the person list.
