    Display (render) all file types in Submission PDF

    Asked by amhomelife on May 30, 2014 at 03:14 PM

    Hi,

    I have numerous occassions when people need to upload different file type formats (doc, docx, pdf, etc.) I want those items to be displayed on the final pdf just like photos are.

    Is this possible? We would like to send one cohesively completed pdf with all information that was submitted.

     

    Thank you.

    This is not currently possible. I have attached a feature request ticket to this thread, but we cannot provide any ETA at this moment. It might be really hard to implement requested feature, since EXCEL, DOC, PDF and other files are not native for browsers. In theory, we will need a system to read these files by some server engine and then include them to the PDF output. I believe it will not be that easy as it sounds.

    We will let you know if we have any updates on the ticket.
