How to Integrate an Individual Form with Procore Documents

A standard integration is a connection between your form and your account on the other site made easy with GoCanvas Integration Options. When you integrate an individual form, a PDF of every submission of that form will be sent to your Procore account to be stored there. To integrate an individual form, follow the steps below:

  1. From your Forms page, select the hyperlink or the gear icon associated with the form you wish to integrate with your Procore account. Forms_Page_Form_Settings_Access.png
  2. Under Form Settings, find Integration Options and select the Settings button.Form_Settings_Integration_Options.png
  3. Activate under the Procore icon.Integration_Options_Procore.png
  4. A dialog box will come up for you to authorize the integration with Procore.Integration_Options_Authorize_Procore.png
  5. Login to Procore with your credentials to authorize GoCanvas to use your account.Procore_Login.png
  6. In the next dialogue box, you will need to select:Procore_Form_Integration_Setup.png
  • A Procore Company that submission PDFs will be uploaded to;
  • A Procore Project that submission PDFs will be uploaded to. 

OR

  • A Company based on value from Submission* to dynamically place your PDFs in a different Company based on the value entered in one of the fields inside your GoCanvas form;
  • A Project based on value from Submission* to dynamically place your PDFs in a different Project based on the value entered in one of the fields inside your GoCanvas form;
  • Then identify a Folder for the PDFs to be stored inside Procore. 

Note

If you have already authorized access to Procore, it will direct you to the next step. Otherwise, you will be notified that your authorization with Procore was successful.

The default path will be /GoCanvas/your-form-name/ but simply placing a ‘/’ will store your files at the root or top level inside Procore and not in a folder. This means it will be stored in a folder named after your form which is in a folder named GoCanvas. You can change the path to whatever you would like. 

You also have an option of creating folders based on a value in the submission. If you leave Folder based on value from Submission (optional) blank the PDFs will all be stored in the folder chosen above. If you choose a field then the PDFs will each be put in a folder titled by the value of that field in the submission.

For example, if you choose a date field, and have five submissions with the value of that date field being 6/13/22, all five of those submissions will go into a folder called 6/13/22 inside of the folder you specified above.

Once you've set these, Save. GoCanvas is now integrated with your Procore account.

How to use Procore with Reference Data 

By connecting with Procore, you can use your Directory information as Reference Data in GoCanvas. Reference Data allows you to auto-fill fields in your forms, which reduces the need to type information on a mobile device and saves your mobile workers time. This also ensures that your users are provided the most up to date business information. 

In order to use your Procore data source as reference data in GoCanvas, you will need to authenticate your Procore Account with GoCanvas. Your authorized credentials will be kept confidential. GoCanvas will not have access to your Procore password. We will only know that you have provided us authorization to have read only access to your Procore files and data.

  1. Navigate to the Reference Data & Images page. Reference Data from Procore can only be added from this page. To add reference data, select Add Reference Data.RD_I_Add_Reference_Data.png
  2. Import your information from Procore by selecting Import data from Procore and Next.RD_I_Import_Procore.png

    Note

    If you have already authorized access to Procore, it will direct you to the next step. Otherwise, you will be notified that your authorization with Procore was successful.

  3. Select a data source: Companies and Projects or Directory, and then Import. If you need to change the account that the reference data is drawing from, select Change Account in the upper right corner of the page.RD_I_Procore_Data_Source.png
  4. The data source you selected will be the file name for your reference data.RD_I_Upload_Data_from_Procore.png
  5. Entering a Description is an optional step that we recommend for keeping your files organized in GoCanvas which appears on the Reference Data & Images page.
  6. If you selected Directory as your data source in step 3, then select the Procore Project OR leave blank to use the Company level Directory.RD_I_Upload_Data_from_Procore_Directory.png
  7. After saving, you will see all uploaded files on the Reference Data & Images page. Icons denote whether the file is from Procore or a CSV file will be visible at the start of each file row.                                                                                                                                                         RD_I_Procre_Icon.png
  8. If there are any changes to the Procore data source, simply select the file name on the Reference Data page, then select Re-Upload Data to automatically update the file in GoCanvas.RD_I_Procore_Re-Upload_Data.png

Please Note

If authentication with Procore has expired, you may need to reauthorize and reselect the needed file.
