Attaching file

Attaching file


I have successfully taken people through an on-line contract signing process.
I am successfully sending them an email containing a link to the signed contract.
I am also successfully using File Manipulation to download a copy to my own local computer, for my owjn records.

My preference would be to attach the contract to the email (rather than only providing a link.
However, I cannot find the correct value to put in "Entered Value" of the SendEmail or Universal Email attachments menu.

And I also cannot select the "Submitted File" option in that same menu because no matter what values I put in the Form, that option remains greyed out in Send Email, and so I cannot select it.

Thank you.

I attach the file.

"submitted file" is for when someone has a file upload form field and you attach that file to an email.

Try moving this code above the email code:


$rsAllPresenterData->getColumnVal("PresentersSigningID") ;  
$presenters_signature html_entity_decode(strip_tags($presenters_signature));
$presenters_signature chop($presenters_signature,"<br />");
// $presenters_signature = substr_replace($presenters_signature ,"",-8) ;
$presenters_sign_url html_entity_decode($rsAllPresenterData->getColumnVal("PresentersSigningURL")) ; 
$presenters_email $rsAllPresenterData->getColumnVal("EmailAddress1") ;
$presenters_name $rsAllPresenterData->getColumnVal("Last") . '_' $rsAllPresenterData->getColumnVal("First"); 

// $client = new HelloSign\Client($my_api_key); // already instantiated above, before header
// $signatureRequestId = "d196f6c74248650f89a305d1d7eaa26b";
$dest_file_path $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/presenters/contracts/' ;
$dest_file_name $presenters_name '.pdf';
$dest_file_download $dest_file_path $dest_file_name ;
$dest_file_download html_entity_decode(strip_tags($dest_file_download));
$dest_file_download chop($dest_file_download,"<br />");
// $dest_file_path = substr_replace($dest_file_path ,"",-6) ;
// $client = new HelloSign\Client("fb31abf96d768b94bcd6751d977d1147a81bd7b56643d3444cbc1d54a47d1a93");  
// $client->getFiles('21b750a9c435680f8c14d736a2dba09d7259e313', $dest_file_path, HelloSign\SignatureRequest::FILE_TYPE_PDF) ;
$saved_signature_request_id $rsAllPresenterData->getColumnVal("SignatureRequestID") ; 
// $client = new HelloSign\Client("fb31abf96d768b94bcd6751d977d1147a81bd7b56643d3444cbc1d54a47d1a93"); 
$client = new HelloSign\Client("$my_api_key"); 

// $client->getFiles('c49a4555324716dc387b498502a546638d281d03', $dest_file_path, HelloSign\SignatureRequest::FILE_TYPE_PDF) ; 
$thisiswhattodownload $client->getFiles($saved_signature_request_id$dest_file_downloadHelloSign\SignatureRequest::FILE_TYPE_PDF) ;
                  try {
    $result = $client->getFiles('21b750a9c435680f8c14d736a2dba09d7259e313', $dest_file_path, HelloSign\SignatureRequest::FILE_TYPE_PDF) ;
} catch (HelloSign\Error $e) {
    $error = $e->getResponseObject();
    echo "Exception when calling HelloSign API: "
        . print_r($error->getError());
$downloadable_file "" $dest_file_name ;
$attach_path "../presenters/contracts/" $dest_file_name ;

Then you can add the attachment as <?php echo($attach_path); ?>
