“I haven’t got round to fully using the plugin just yet but done some extensive testing and everything works really well and as advertised. It’s simple to use and the form fields on a PDF are filled in with ease. I personally create the PDF documents with PDF Pen Pro for Mac and the fields are recognised perfectly with this plugin. The ability to have a dynamic short code allowing the instant download of the currently completed formidable form is fantastic and in my testing works brilliantly. The small amount I’ve spoken with sales / support was excellent with a quick response.”

“I bought this plugin a few days ago, and it does exactly what it’s suppose to do. Because of the format differences between USA and EU, there was a little setback, but the support stepped it up and worked their magic, so now everything works flawlessly. I would absolutely recommand using their services.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the plugin work with multisite installations?

Yes, the plugin works with WordPress Multisite (WPMU) – site limits still apply. Do not activate the plugin from the Network Plugins page, rather each site on the WPMU must activate the plugin individually.

Is support offered for the free version?

Yes – standard user support is available through the support forum or purchase a key code for premium level support.

Does the plugin create PDF files?

Not at this time. Currently the plugin populates pre-made PDF form fields with mapped data from Formidable Form and FormidablePro form fields.

Future plans include adding HTML to PDF capabilities. Subscribe for updates.

About the Plugin

Originally designed and coded in 2013 out of a need to print dynamic PDF documents from WordPress forms, Formidable PRO2PDF provided the automation necessary for a small insurance agency to produce more business, with the same number of employees.

Today, this Add-on Plug-in for Formidable Forms provides the entire WordPress community with a cost free method of creating dynamic PDF documents – without programming or coding – with one simple shortcode.

With the ability to merge all Formidable Form fields into Adobe PDF Form text, checkbox or radio button fields, this plug-in also integrates email attachment functionality with Formidable Form’s Email Notification Actions. Allowing site visitors to send flattened or editable PDF’s to preset or dynamic email addresses based on user input – and with a signature too!

Since the May 2015 public release of this plug-in, ongoing development has been driven 100% by user input. From adding a Word .docx output, to dynamically naming the PDF file attachment, new feature requests and support questions have been the driving force for development. If this plug-in does not work as needed for your project, don’t hesitate to ask for help, and if at all possible, we’ll design it to work for you too.

We remain at your service! – Formidable PRO2PDF
