I have created a template and mapped all corresponding fields from the Formidable form into their locations on the PDF. I am looking for a way to do a bulk download of all the entries and have them mapped to the PDF file. From what I can gather this seems possible, but I am not sure how to begin this processMarch 12, 2019 at 9:31 am #21019adminKeymaster
Bulk download is not an option with PRO2PDF, however, you can create a Formidable View to list the entries and use a PRO2PDF shortcode to include a link to download each PDF.
Our other plugin, E2Pdf, has a [e2pdf-save] shortcode that may be used in conjunction with a Formidable View to automatically save each PDF to the server. Soon, E2Pdf will offer a bulk download solution – PRO2PDF will not. PRO2PDF templates can be migrated to E2Pdf here.

hi i can create the list of entries from Formidable View.
however, clicking on the entry to the detail page is empty. I’m assuming i will need to “use a PRO2PDF shortcode to include a link to download each PDF.” ..
is there a way this can be automatically done? Because i don’t expect to update each new entry with a new shortcodeApril 29, 2020 at 9:51 pm #30256adminKeymaster
Using the PRO2PDF shortcode in Formidable Views and changing the dataset parameter to dataset=[id] will automatically populate each result with the entry’s EntryID.
You can use the shortcode in the view that lists entries, or on the view’s detail page.
Create a new forum post if you need additional assistance or if we did not answer your question, please provide a more specific use case.
NOTE: “Automatic download” of a list of merged PDFs is not possible.
