E-mailing a form outside of Workflow

Not applicable
I would like the last step of my Workflow to e-mail attachments (which I can do), and I would like to package the form and data as a PDF and send out as an e-mail.



The purpose is... I would like to send the form and data to a person or persons outside of our firewall that do not have access to Workflow or our Form Server.



Is it possible to package the form and data and send as an e-mail attachment?



Thanks

JRA,



If you have licenced copies of both the Abe Workflow Server and Adobe Form Server then yes what you are asking is possible.



In order to create the PDF w\ Form\Data merged, you will have to call "Agent.createPDF(sData, sTemplate, bIsDynamic)" within a script task in Workflow Designer. ( This assumes that FS is installed on the same Server as Agent ). The online help should explain the function params in detail.



Once you have the PDF you can build a custom mailmsg, passing a fully qualified email address within the Mail.To method, and attach the file as required.

Jon,



Thank you! - that is exactly what I wanted to know. And we do. So it sounds like a snap.
