Hi!

I'm creating PDFs with Google Docs and DocsAutomator. When I check the field "generate RMA" AirTable create PDF out of Google Doc and save this PDF to the desired attachent field. Of course the data is from AirTable. And this is easy.

Then I came across one problem, which I think I handeled it okay. If I have two choices that I have to decide and check in a checkbox) I simply created formula field.

So I had two choices "repair" or "servise modification". And I created checkbox field "repair" and "ervise modification". And then formula field for each of these field with IF() function. If the field if checked, it returns checked box, otherwise it returns empty checkbox. And then I connect these two (formula) fields to the PDF. And It worked.

But then I came uppon bigger problem.. if I have many choices to check I don't want to create all these fields plus formula fields for all that fields, if you know what I mean. SpelaU_0-1691669022229.png

Is there any other way to do that? Maybe with a single- or multiselect field? Is it possible that I select all the things (in this example what are the accessories that comes with the product) and then somehow they marked properly in the PDF?

Thanks.

With these accessories (upper) I can choose multiple choices.

I also have similar problem... when I have multiple choices but I have to check only one (for example type of the product):
