Convert Approved Word Doc into PDF

Hi everyone, 

 

I just want confirmation if this is something we can automate or not. 

 

I'm trying to build a document library automation in Sharepoint. Basically, what I want done is when selected users check in the document in the library and it gets approved, it will be converted to pdf and the pdf copy is moved into another library that's publicly accessible to all our staff. The word doc stays in that library for future editing. 

 

Is this possible?

 

Thank you!

Yes this is possible using the word online business Connector https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/wordonlinebusiness/

 

You can use the Convert Word to PDF

You can also use the sharepoint connector : Create File Action to save generated PDF in another sharepoint Library.

 

Hope this gives you an idea!

Hi Mira, 

 

How does this happen after approval? I get the convert part, but the convert after approval part is what I'm not sure of. 

 

Thanks!
