Hello,
I have a worpdress site, there I have a page with a formidable form which stores the entries and emails the result to a certain recipient. I now need to get it to generate a pdf of the entry and send this pdf to the recipient, how can I do this? The form also includes possibility to add attachments and i would like them also delivered to the recipient.

I have your plugin installed in wordpress, but cant find out how to use it...

Hi,

The steps you must follow:

1. Create E2Pdf Template that is connected to needed form. (screenshot 1). Template can have as pre-uploaded PDF with fields as can be created from scratch via Drag&Drop UI.

2. Map e2pdf fields/objects to needed fields of Formidable Form. It can be done via "Right Mouse Click" (on field) -> "Map Field" or you can fill value directly with "Right Mouse Click" -> "Properties" -> "Value" with Formidable Forms shortcodes. (screenshot 2).

3. Insert [e2pdf-attachment id="1"] to generate attachment or [e2pdf-download id="1"] to generate download link to mail body, where 1 is the ID of your "E2Pdf Template". (screenshot 3).

You can also check some examples on our YouTube channel here.

P.S. It will depend on your form settings to send other (non E2Pdf) attachments as E2Pdf must not affect it anyhow.

Hi,

Unfortunately attachments inside PDF is not yet supported. We have this option in our "roadmap" already, so this feature will be added in future. We expect to add it till the end of 2019.
