Understand how to send generated PDF file & Google documents to your recipients.

Table of Content:

  1. Send PDF/document to static recipients
  2. Send PDF/document to dynamic recipients

For starters, you will need to switch mode to ‘Generate & send document/PDF‘ if you haven’t.

In this mode, you can set up document/PDF generation and add recipients to send them the generated files.

1. Send PDF/document to static recipients

In this guide, we will suppose that you already know how to set up a file template via Document & PDF tab (it is similar to ‘Generate PDF/document‘ mode).

Supposed that you have finished setting up & adding the file template to the add-on, you can go to ‘Recipients‘ tab by selecting Recipients on top of the Configuration menu:

You can also scroll down to the bottom of the menu and click ‘Switch to Recipients’:

In the ‘Recipients’ tab, click ‘Add static email‘ to add a static recipient’s email on the add-on. It will create a blank where you can enter a specific email address:

After that, click ‘Receive PDF‘ to see the drop-down and select which type of file your recipient can receive, including:

  • Receive PDF: meaning the recipient will receive the generated PDF only.
  • Can view document: meaning the recipient will receive the generated Google Docs only.
  • Can edit document: meaning the recipient will receive the generated Google Doc and be able to edit this document directly.
  • Can comment document: meaning the recipient will receive the generated Google Docs and be able to comment on this document.

Finally, click ‘Save.

2. Send PDF/document to dynamic recipients

First, it is highly recommended to create a question in which your respondents can enter their email addresses (or select an email address if it is a multiple-choice question).

This question should be set as Obligatory (*) and it has Response validation as Text and Email address:

Next, click the “Add dynamic recipient” button of the add-on:

Similar to adding static email, a dynamic field will appear above the buttons for you to select the question which asks the respondent to enter/select an email address. In the example above, we have a question called ‘Your Supervisor‘. 

Finally, select which file type this dynamic recipient can receive by choosing an option from the drop-down below the field. These options are similar to the static recipient section:

Finally, click ‘Save‘.
