Combine PDFs with Data Routing

For those of you have been using our Data Routing feature, we have launched a new feature that allows you to combine the PDF documents that have been created from your routing rules.  This feature will still send the individual PDF documents in your notifications, and we will return the combined PDFs in 1 file to the browser stream.

It is pretty easy to get this all setup – you only have to do 2 things.  The first is indicating which documents in your Data Route that you want to include in this combined PDF.  For each of your rules (where you define which documents to send data to) you will see a checkbox labeled “Included in combined PDF” – you will need to check this box.

To activate this feature on your Data Routing calls, you need to add an optional parameter (download=1) to the URL.  For example:


The download=1 flag (like in the Merge URL) indicates that you want the PDF returned/downloaded to the browser stream.  For those of you using the Formstack integration, you will notice that there is now an option to immediately redirect the user to the PDF when you are using a Data Route.

We are pretty excited about this feature – it opens a lot of doors for creating some really nice work flows for your business.  Please let us know if you have any questions!
