Maybe you’ve run into a project where your client has a HR department that gathers applications from job seekers, or you need a way to generate and populate documents online, or any other application that would require a user input to be transformed into a PDF.
There’s no better way to achieve that than using Elementor alongside Gloo‘s new PDF Generator.
This is because Gloo has extended Elementor‘s unmatched design capabilities to make them work with PDFs as well. You can now create Elementor templates and use them as templates not just for pages, but for PDFs as well.
You can fill in these PDFs using any amount of fields from the Elementor form this Form Action is selected on.
The PDF Generator essentially prints the user input from the form’s fields into an Elementor template and then generates a PDF using the selected template as layout for the document.
This means that all that is required to start generating PDFs is a template mapped to the respective form fields where you’d like the information to show up. This can be easily done by filling out your template with prepopulated information as needed, and then pasting each form field’s shortcode where you’d like its data to appear.
With that done, paste the template’s shortcode into the corresponding field inside the PDF Generator’s menu, in the content tab of your form.
You can use a repeater to add multiple items and fill in different templates with the same information, useful if different people or departments need different styling to process their PDFs.
You can even let users sign their documents using the Signature Field, which was designed on purpose to work with this feature.
