Create a Change Event from an Instruction


To create a change event from an instruction in Procore.


If you have issued an instruction that leads to a change event (see What is a change event?), you can create a change event from the Instructions tool. When you create the change event, information from the instruction is automatically added and a link to the instruction is added to the 'Origin' field of the change event.
