Below are notable changes to the project's Submittals tool in 2017.
Rollout of New Submittal Workflow for Approvers (12/27/2017)
Procore will begin rolling out a new submittal workflow model to provide your users with more flexibility when setting the approval path for a submittal. This new model prevents project users with 'Admin' level permission on the Submittals tool from having to specifically configure the tool to use sequential approval or parallel approval. With the new workflow model, any submittal on a project can now be created to use sequential, parallel or a combination of both approval models. To learn more, see Submittals: Rollout of New Submittal Workflow for Approvers.
