I posted in the ideas about my desire to have Page Designer integrated with the Interface Designer. I would like the employees at my company to be able to work within the Interface and generate letters for our clients through PDFs that are exported to the desktop.
I know there are so many third party solutions to document generation, but I was wondering if it is possible to create a script that would be activated by a button in the interface to generate a letter that will save to the users desktop using one of the third party solutions.
There are several third party services that can create pdf files. Most can upload the pdf file to an attachment field. In order to get a file onto the user’s local computer, either the user would need to download it, or you would need to send it to a service that syncs files to the local computer, such as Dropbox.
Scripting does not have the ability to write files to the local computer.
Too bad. I would like to use one of the third party services. Not sure which is the most cost effective or user friendly. But I would much prefer if any of these extensions would work within the Interface Designer as well.
