Submittals can be one of the most tedious tasks on any construction site.  Logging, tracking, and reviewing them can take a lot of hours that you might not have.  Thankfully, in recent years, several construction technology companies, like Procore, have launched automated submittal log builders to help ease the pain and increase accuracy.  To make the submittal process even less tedious, Procore recently announced the release of the new Submittal PDF markup, which is free to all users.

As part of the Procore Project Management product, the Submittal PDF Markup tool will now allow users to markup and stamp submittal documents without the use of a 3rd party software, like Adobe Acrobat or Bluebeam Studio. No more downloading the document from the cloud to your computer, opening up the other program, saving it, and then uploading back to Procore.

Inside the markup tool, you’ll have a variety of buttons and keyboard shortcuts available within the markup toolbar, including:

  • Select

  • Draw

  • Line

  • Cloud

  • Highlight freehand and text

  • Text

  • Stamp

  • And many others

In addition to the markup tools and ease of markup, users are also able to upload a customizable company stamp, add a blank page to the front of the submittal for comments, and see an activity feed to track who added markups and when they were added.

Perhaps most importantly, allowing markup within the Procore platform will greatly reduce confusion and the use of out of date documents, much like having the rest of your construction documents uploaded to a project management software does.
