Fill an already created PDF form

Hey All,

I searched through the forum looking for this and I couldn’t find anything that I needed.

I am looking to have a pdf (predesigned) filled with information from bubble.

Here is the scenario.

This app is a school management software and I am looking to generate Certificates and Transcripts.

With the Certificated, I want them designed and then filled with information from the students profile. Things like Name and Graduation Date.

With the Transcript I want it to list all of the courses they attended and name and graduation date.

All of this information will populate into an already designed Certificate and Transcript. What I do not what to do is turn a page into a pdf.

Does anyone know how I might go about finding this out. I looked at ConvertAPI I looked at SelectPDF and both are page to PDF.

Please Help!!! lol.

All the best,
Benjamin

Hey, that looks perfect, I’m wondering if there are any other services out there that might be less expensive. I can have a plugin built, but $50 per month is too much to pass on to any of my clients.

Does anyone know of any other companies that might be less expensive, or any other solution?

Hi @ben4,

You can create your own fillable PDF within bubble. Here are the steps:

  1. Insert the bubble image element on a page
  2. Upload your PDF file into the bubble image element - you’ll now be able to see a preview of the PDF file within bubble’s editor
  3. Add in text boxes / things that overlay on top of your PDF
  4. Purchase / rent a PDF creator app like @ZeroqodeSupport’s PDF Creator to save your new filled PDF
    a) Ensure that you setup the page dimensions correctly (i.e. A4 / Letter) - follow the guidance / steps

Let me know how that works for you.
