Can you please provide me with a guide from start to finish as to how to implement your solution?
Automation of the e-mail being send is the key meaning that as soon as the User clicks on the “Place Order” button in my App… the e-mail with the newly generated Pdf attachment should be send to a specific e-mail address.
Unless you telling me that my “Place Order” button should be replaced by the PDF Generator API button… I then connect all the actions over to the PDF Generator API button…???
But where and how does the Webhook come in to send the mail?.. sorry, I’ve never worked with Webhooks before… hence me asking you for a guide to implement your solution accordingly!
My struggle is getting the Order Items of my Order to display correctly.
In Integromat/Make or Zapier, to trigger the scenario/zap we monitor the Orders Collection(Adalo) for when a New Order is created… this then triggers the PDF Generator API and populates the Template with values from the current Order being placed… then sends an e-mail with the generated PDF as an attachment.
My problem is no matter what I try, I can’t seem to figure out where the Order Items fits into the hierarchy flow to then generate a complete PDF of the Order with all of it’s Order Items(Image, Description, Qty, Price) listed in the Order, line for line as they appear in my App.
Thank you for the Tutorial… I’ve worked with theAdaloGuy(Nathan) before and that Video originated from the request that I discussed with him… it solved the generating of the PDF whilst in the App with a click of a button…
My problem is the Automation of the PDF Document and sending it to a recipient of choice via a email attachment or in the email body itself…
Nowhere in this Tutorial does Nathan cover the use of Zapier or Integromat/Make to achieve the above automation process.
I applaud his Guide/Tutorial as I actively use it in my App as we speak, but someone has to physically click the “Generate PDF” button, then the PDF opens in a Browser window, from there only are you able to download or print the PDF… and only then are you able to share it via email or other platforms…
Like I said, I’m after what most of the Online Shops do when you order online, the minute you complete your Order, you receive and email with your complete Order attached in the email(PDF), sometimes they even include your Order Items in the Body of the email for immediate referral.
If i understand correctly the soluttion is simple, instead of you write in the button “generate PDF”, just put “continue”, in a post buy screen and the use the call back url generated (the one in the lower input in that video) and then send that to integromat with a webhook, and this way you can do everything else that you want.
My ideia is that you run this in the background, without the user sees it using the magic text
