- Submit a form with name, date, signature and PDF coversheets
- Webhook to Integromat
- Adds signature, etc to the PDF
- Merges it with other PDF uploads from form
- Store it or send it anywhere
Hey. Very nice indeed. Thanks for the heads up. FYI best way to handle the date is to lock the format with a Glide template column and pass that through to Integromat (same goes for numbers with units etc).
Until this, I’ve used external means to transact PDF-based contracts between clients…this is now going to be added to the Admin section of our app! The signature ability is ideal too!
Thanks for making the demo!
I ended up using an inline Integromat conversion:
This is pretty cool.
Looking at PDF.co it supports form fill. You may be able to create/use form fields to populate the data and avoid the trial and error frustration with X,Y positioning
Indeed! The document I used was just a run-of-the-mill PDF I created 5 min prior to the demo. I’m sure there’s a more elegant solution in there.
Pass a third “GMT”/“UTC” parameter in case you pass the original Glide’s date/time from a datetime picker, otherwise it would show some weird conversion based on your Integromat timezone settings.
Yeah. I had some issues with this in an app with global users. That’s why I template it first in Glide then send that over to Integromat. In those famous words “It’s the only way to be sure”.
Date formatting is such a PITA.
When I used to use those ridiculously overcomplicated scenarios for CSV exports (remember that one I showed you?), I was forever fighting Integromat to try and get dates formatted the way I wanted. I’d define a data store field as a date type, and Integromat would mangle it. So then I’d try defining it as a string, and something else would break. ARRGG!! The nice thing about the new way - building the CSV in Glide - is that all of those problems instantly melt away, because Integromat doesn’t have to format anything
Good stuff! Appreciate everyone’s input on this.
Happy Cake Day!
