Today I integrated my URL box plan with GLIDE. All good as explained in the documentation. However, I need URLBox to convert a LINK of my app into a pdf, a variable of course for each user. But it asks me for parameters that I don’t understand, HTML, CSS, etc. I also need it to print the entire page, which is long at the bottom, it represents approximately 5 to 6 pages of a PDF document. How can I correctly configure this action?
You might be able to test out Screenshot API solutions. I did this before, but it’s not straightforward. I have to keep my app as optional sign-in, and give the public URL to the API, but it does work if you are willing to test a bit on the height needed for the screenshot.
Thanks again, RhinDinh. I am building an app for my colleagues, which consists of creating a technical report. I am already solving the way to build this report for users thanks to GLIDE. But the success of my app depends on the data being converted into a PDF report with a variety of formats. I tried with pdf monkey, with url box with docs sprint, but they all end in the same thing, I must create the html document to convert it into pdf, there I am left without resources, because I really don’t know anything about code, I don’t have the experience or the skills. It occurred to me that something very creative was to synchronize my table with an AirTable table that in turn synchronizes with WordPress, because there I can create a template post to my liking, but all that flow is expensive and the synchronization is slow and unstable. For me the real deal would be to find a no-code PDF builder, where I can clearly identify how to link the texts and images of the Glide content. I thank you again for this option, but when I see code I already paralyze, jeje . Thank you
I don’t know much about code, but I do know a little about business, so I’m going to concentrate on finishing my app, before investing in more PDF format solutions. I’m going to check the idea, and let the users validate the solution, and if so, it would be economically viable to invest in a solution to print the reports with many alternatives.
As @ThinhDinh said, it’s doable but creating that template in Google Docs will of course take a bit of time. Also please note that PDF export is limited to 10MB currently, so you’ll have to make sure that the added images are properly compressed / optimized.
