Hello E2pdf team,
I have been using your product for one year with great satisfaction in the employee onboarding system of my company.
I would like to know how to do the following workflow in order to upgrade my system:

1) Employee fills out basic data in Formidable Forms form.
2) Employee uploads documents, such as their passport copy, etc in the Formidable Forms form...
3) E2dpf GENERATES a master pdf file that contains: the page with the data the employee filled up and on another page(s) the files the user uploaded.
Is this something that I can do or code?
Thank you in advance.

Hi,

If you need to show uploaded scanned copies inside PDF it must not be issues with using file upload field with Formidable Forms and E2Pdf image object.

If it will be separate file uploads, you must be able just to create "e2pdf-image" object with value [123 size="full"], where "123" is field id (screenshot 1).

If it will be file upload field which allows multiple files to upload, then it must be applied [e2pdf-format-output] shortcode wrapper to split images and shortcodes will look like (screenshot 2):

1st image:
[e2pdf-format-output explode=", " output="{0}"][123 size="full"][/e2pdf-format-output]

2nd image:
[e2pdf-format-output explode=", " output="{1}"][123 size="full"][/e2pdf-format-output]

3rd image:
[e2pdf-format-output explode=", " output="{2}"][123 size="full"][/e2pdf-format-output]

and so on...

P.S. Keep attention also to allow only image file types. Currently it's supported jpg, jpeg and png image types.

P.P.S. You can also hide pages if it's needed via "Actions" and "Conditions" by checking if value not empty. It must be used same shortcode inside conditions which used to output image. (screenshot 3)

Hello E2pdf team,

Is there any possible way to allow the upload of pdf's (instead of images) on Formidable forms, and make them appear in the final pdf in the e2pdf?

My team currently needs to be able to upload pdf's for the above-mentioned purpose.

Thank you!

Hi,

You must be able allow uploading PDFs via Formidable Forms however it will be possible to output only direct URL to uploaded file, not as "image".
