Combining multiple files/attachments

Hi, friends!

I’m looking for suggestions on the best method to combine multiple attachments within a record.
Essentially I need a button/formula/automation for each row in my table to act as Adobe’s “Combine Files” function in Acrobat.

I use miniExtensions and they have an app to combine multiple attachment field into one, but they are still separate files whereas I need to merge them all into one.

Is there an Airtable or Integromat function that can perform this task?

Thanks in advance!

Airtable doesn’t have such a feature, and frankly I’d be surprised if one was ever added. It makes sense for something like that to be in Acrobat because its focus is document display and manipulation. Airtable is a database application, and document attachment support is mostly there for storage purposes, and somewhat for display, but I don’t see the attachment system ever supporting editing of attachments.

Integromat might have something like this, but I rarely go into Integromat any more (I was mostly using it to automate things that Airtable can now handle internally). Maybe @ScottWorld knows something?

Hi @Taylor_Johnston!

Yes, @Justin_Barrett is correct that this can be done with Integromat.

Integromat can automate the process of merging multiple PDF files (or merging any type of image files) into a single PDF file with its CloudConvert integration. See link below.

p.s. If you have a budget for your project and you’d like to hire an expert Airtable consultant & Registered Integromat Partner to help you set this up, please feel free to contact me through my website at ScottWorld.com.
