Hi @Med,

 

Currently, there is no Autocrat function can be used in Flow. Please consider submitting a request on Flow Ideas Forum so that it might be considered in the future releases:

Re: Autocrat function

Hi, @v-yamao-msft & @GabrielStJohn , 

 

Has anything changed regarding this in the past year?  Or is there an option to achieve a similar result using multiple flows chained together?  

I.e., Could you use this: https://us.flow.microsoft.com/en-us/galleries/public/templates/2be590104bdd11e78896d10a96d3fac3/reco...

and then this: https://us.flow.microsoft.com/en-us/galleries/public/templates/827b37728b634ba89e3e6678ddff334e/send...

so that an email is generated (to a non-sharepoint user/general email address) that links them to a document they can then download/print?  

 

Thanks!

Hey there, @c-bock!

Thank you for following up! It appears that there is still no OOB connector for the service that you mentioned.

Looping in @v-yamao-msft@yashag2255, as they might be able to offer more insight or point out a solution to your scenario!

Thanks in advance!

Happy Flowing!

Re: Autocrat function

Hi @c-bock 

 

Please see the screenshots below:

 

What I am doing is, getting the response from the form and creating an array that contains the question and the response. (Note: I am hardcoding the questions here from the form). 

With this array, I am creating an HTML table and saving this as an html file on OneDrive (this is a temporary file that i am creating). Now with the Convert File action from OneDrive, I am converting the HTML file to a PDF file and creating the PDF file on OneDrive. The next step is to delete the html file and send create a sharing link for the PDF file. In the send emal action, I am sending the URL of the pdf file and I am also attaching the PDF file with the email.
