  • Hi

    I need in the backend when user see a list of submitted entries to select one of the entry and select a template then download PDF, how I can do that ?

    I am searching now also for a way to save Divi forms data and make it available for the user to edit or delete, I know this does not belong to your support but any help is appreciated.

    Hi,

    If you will be using Formidable Forms – you will need to use Formidable Forms Views: https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/create-a-view/.

    Inside the “View” it must be used E2Pdf shortcodes as: [e2pdf-download id="1" dataset="[id]"]

    * where 1 is the ID of needed E2Pdf Template which will be used to create PDF. So you can generate different links for different E2Pdf Template IDs by adding multiple shortcodes or mix it with some get params and Formidable Forms “if” conditional logic.

    ** The [id] will be converted by Formidable Forms Views to the ID of Entry for which it must be generated PDF automatically so you will need to build correct logic to search and load page with needed entry by view or show multiple entries according Formidable Forms View syntax. E2Pdf can work as with multiple entries views as with single entry view.

    We remain at your service.

    Hi,

    You need to follow documentation for Formidable Forms View: https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/create-a-view/

    Inside the Formidable Forms View you need to use shortcodes EXACTLY as [e2pdf-download id="1" dataset="[id]"] except Template ID “1”.

    * [id] will be replaced automatically by Formidable Forms View to Entry ID depending on View setup.
