Is it possible to have UE convert email to pdf before sending to recipient?

I want to know if it is possible for UE to convert a submitted form into pdf and sent to the recipient?

UE doesn't include functionality to create .pdf files... it can send attachments though, so you could use something like PDFLib to create the pdf and use universal email to send the pdf once it is created.

Hi Ray,

once the form is submitted is the PDF created on the server and attached to the email to the recipient? How do i achieve this?

Here is an article about creating pdf files in php: generate-pdfs-php/

In terms of getting it sent by UE, just add the path of the created pdf file to the attachments tab.

Thanks Ray, sounds pretty straight forward.

Yup indeed, I agree with Ray. You can create PDF files rather than convert email to pdf. As far as I know, I have never tried to convert email to pdf before. I am even not sure whether my PDF converter can do this. But I am sure that creating PDF directly can be much easier. You can google it and have a try. I hope you usccess. Good luck.



best regards,
Arron
