Create Course Category Action

Create Course Category Action

OVERVIEW

The "Create Course Category" action creates a new course category in your Pluto LMS based on information provided in the trigger.

SETTING UP A "CREATE COURSE CATEGORY" ACTION

Step 1: Set up your trigger, e.g. "New Row in Microsoft Excel."



Note: The trigger may need to provide the category name of the new category that your zap needs to create in your Pluto LMS.

Step 2: Select (1) Pluto LMS as your action app and (2) "Create Course Category" as your action event, then (3) choose your connected Pluto LMS account from the drop-down list. 



Step 3: To set up your action you can manually enter the category name of the new course category that your zap must create in your Pluto LMS. 

Note: For a more dynamic zap (that can create various new course categories) you can select the corresponding field from your trigger data source that will provide the category name of the new course category that your zap must create in your Pluto LMS. 



You can now scroll down and click on "Continue" to proceed to test your action and switch on your zap or add additional action steps.
