Unfortunately there is no native way to do this with an airtable automation. You can create the pdfs manually using the Page Designer app but this does not integrate with an automation.
Your only option is to use a third party service. I have achieved an automation like this using Integromat. I created a Google Docs Template, generated the documents with an integromat scenario then downloading the doc as a pdf and attached it to an email.
Hello there @forms.ge Michaela from Integromat here :wave:
Since there’s currently no native way of achieving this, I thought I 'd step in to say that you could make this work with Integromat. It’s a no-code platform that lets you connect Airtable to pretty much any other online service and automate all kinds of tasks and processes.
There actually is a pre-made template that illustrates how you could go about doing something like this. The template:
You could build a very similar scenario, adding the step to convert the doc into a pdf file.
Anyway, to check out what the options are when working with Airtable on Integromat, you can check out :arrow_right: the Airtable integration and its features and functionality.
