Mass PDF generator

Post by Ocasio » Tue Jan 14, 2020 2:11 am

Hello, I am generating 500 PDF from a .csv table that I am inserting in form fields. I have two questions about it.

Do I need to first create 500 "empty" files? I always do it but there should be an easier way since its one form repeated 500 times.

Is there any way to rename all output documents based on a form input? I want each one to have as a filename a specific form data. For example, inside the form "employee_number=2828" then the output file "2828.pdf"

Hello Ocasio,

Creating 500 empty files should not be necessary, so long as you are not overwriting the original "empty" file you should be able to reuse it. As for dynamically naming the output based on form fields, currently this is not possible.

Kind regards,
