    Hello!
    I’d like to know if is there any way to store the generated pdf url.
    When a PDF is ready I get a url like this:
    https://mysite.com/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=wpfx_generate&form=bnq62&dataset=42&layout=1000&inline=1&filename=john+smith&key=22e77405ed635f344102ef8db6ff0733

    Is it possible to store this in the database? Or in a secondary database?

    THis way I could allow users to re-print their PDF, or regenerate the filled PDF whenever they need.

    THanks!

    PDFs are not ‘stored’ they are created when the link is clicked, then the PDF may be saved wherever the user decides. PDFs can be also be recreated at anytime by using the shortcode and the Formidable entryID for the user’s entry.

    Let us know if you need more assistance setting up the shortcode to recreate PDFs.

    We remain at your service.

    Thanks. I’d appreciate a lot your help to do it.

    I guess a text field could be created in the form, with the shortcode and the ID.

    Is that right?

    Sure, we’d be happy to help. First, let’s understand your specific need;
    1. Are users logged in to WordPress?
    2. How many different PDFs will each user be able to re-download/re-print?
    3. Is there currently a page on the site that users will access to re-download/re-print
    4. Do admin users have a need to download/print any of the user’s PDFs?
