Edit a Submittal Package


To edit a submittal package using the Project level Submittals tool.


submittal package is a container that stores one or more submittals. Typically, a general contractor creates submittal packages that list all of the individual submittals specific to a particular trade or subcontractor. For example, one might create a submittal package to contain all of the plumbing-related submittals in a commercial building project.

  2. Click Packages.
    This reveals the Submittal Packages page.
  3. Locate the submittal package that you want to edit and click Edit.
  4. In the 'General Information' area, update the following fields as needed:
    • Title. Enter a descriptive name for the submittal package. 

    • Spec Section. Denotes the corresponding section from the project's specifications book (a.k.a., spec book). See Where do the selections in the 'Spec Sections' drop-down list in the Submittals tool come from?

    • Number. The submittal package number. 

    • Description. Informative details, notes and/or actions that describe the submittal.

    • Title. The descriptive name that best summarizes the information in the submittal. 

    • Private. Indicates privacy settings for the submittal. When a submittal is marked 'Private', it is only visible to users with 'Admin' level permissions on the Submittals tool, users in the Submittal Workflow, and members of the submittal's Distribution List. Users with the 'View Private Submittals Associated to Users within Same Company' granular permission enabled on their permissions template can also view a submittal marked 'Private' if another user in their company is associated with the submittal. See Mark a Submittal as Private.
