Dynamic content in email attachment

We have a working eCart and need to email the shop administrator a despatch note at the same time as they get the transaction confirmation.

So far we have successfully created a despatch note page with shipping and item details (no prices) for this purpose in the administrator's customer order history and we also separately send an invoice/confirmation email on a successful transaction. What would be ideal is to email the despatch note as an attachment so the packers receive an email, print it off and pop it in the order.

I could't find a tutorial or forum post on creating dynamic attachments for adding to UE.

Any pointers?

don't create the dispatch note as an attachment, instead, you should send the dynamic information directly in the email.


Universal Email will allow you to send dynamic information as part of the email body, this information can come from the cart, a record or a form.

We HAVE created the despatch note as dynamic information directly in the email. We have also created a despatch note as a page in his admin section. Both work fine.

What the client wants is to email the dynamic information as an attachment to his packing department so when it's opened in say Word it doesn't have the header information email programs create (EG from, to, subject, date etc).

When the attachment is printed it will look better for inclusion in the packaging as a despatch note for the customer.

The page in the admin section would be a good solution when printed but the cleint doesn't want the packers to have to go into the website's admin section. He wants them to just receive an email ready to print and pack.

to add it as an attachment, you would first need to save the information as a physical file on the server.

You would need to hand code the php logic to save the dynamic information into a file on the server, then attach that file to the email.

None of the webassist extensions will do this for you. this is not a supported feature.
