    Access to the "form report" pdf file thru zappier

    Asked by rogero on June 20, 2016 at 10:41 AM

    Hi,

    I am using your form to submit new projects. When a new form is sent I use zappier to create a new project in ProWorkFlow. I have set up so that the files my client attaches to the form is saved in my dropbox. I can attach these files to the project by using the forms field. The problem I am having is that I would like to attach the "form report" pdf file to the project but that file does not have a field in the form that I can refer to in zappier. Uny suggestions on how to get this to work?

     

    Thanks, Roger

    If I understood you correctly, you would like to be able to get the PDF of the submitted data and save it in your project.

    If that is true, you could build your own link to the PDF.

    To do it base it on the following:

    https://submit.jotform.com/server.php?action=getSubmissionPDF&sid={id}&formID={FormID}

    Where the {FormID} would be replaced by the ID of your form.

    For example, if you were connecting the following form:

    jotform.com/form/1234567890 then the form ID would be 1234567890.

    The {id} would be the submission ID. This is generated when the submission is created, so this is the only part that would change each time, however once the form hits Zapier, your email notification is sent, or webhook fired, this is already available as {id}.

    Hope this helps :)
