Create a new object in your Procore account.
This action can be used to execute most Procore API calls that use an HTTP POST request and take a single object (rather than an array of objects) as input.

Suppose you want to create a new Incident in Procore based on data from a completed Incident form in GoFormz. To do this, you might start with a Form Completed trigger, then configure a Create Object step as follows:
In this example, we first construct the
apiPath as described in Procore's Create Incident API documentation, using the "ProjectId" field from the completed form to fill in the required
project_id path parameter. Then we fill the
event_date fields of the Procore Incident with corresponding values from the completed form. Note that all of these parameters can be found in the Body Parameters section of the Create Incident API documentation. Finally, for the
event_date input we specify:

America/Tijuanatime zone, telling Procore that the event happened in the US Pacific time zone.
