Improve your productivity with the Print Creator add-on. With the new feature, Print Creator not just enables users to automate the form creation process, but also keeps a record of the PDF file within the database.
Previously when you wanted to save a PDF file, it was done by manually saving the file onto your local drive once, then uploading the file onto Kintone. Clicking the Output button created a preview of the file in a new browser tab, which had to be printed as a PDF file in order to save it on your computer.
When generating and saving a PDF file onto Kintone, you are saving the record in a PDF file onto Kintone’s database rather than outputting the PDF file onto a computer or an external network.
Start off by dropping down the “Select-the Field to Save” tab and selecting the field of saving the file to “Attachments”
After selecting Attachments, the third drop-down window pops up to select the settings in which the PDF documents will be saved. Notice how the text in the orange button changes from Output to Save.
Here you can choose the file name by selecting one of the preexisting categories from the reference database as the title.
After you successfully saved the record within Kintone as a PDF file, you will be able to access them by clicking on the link.
Bulk save documents
Another powerful trick is to use Print Creator to bulk save multiple records resulting in multiple PDF files saved at once.
You can easily check the Created PDF and other attachments to each record under the Attachment column.
Voila! Now you’re powered with the knowledge to use Print Creator and up your productivity!
