Making PDF Documents with Zapier

DocRaptor's HTML-to-PDF API makes it easy to convert HTML into a PDF document on Zapier, especially with our hosted documents add-on.

Step 1: Create a Trigger

You'll need some kind of trigger event. For this example, we'll use Zapier's Forecast app:

Step 2: Add the Webhooks by Zapier App

Use Zapier's built-in Webhooks app and select the POST action:

Step 3: Setup the DocRaptor API Call

For the URL, use "". Make sure the Payload Type is set to "json". All the data options follow DocRaptor standard API parameters.

The only required parameters are "type", "document_content", and "hosted". You can optionally defined "hosted_expires_at" and/or "hosted_download_limit":

Leave all these options on their defaults:

Click Continue and give everything a quick test.

Step 4: Do something with the PDF

That's all! From there, you'll have an awesome PDF and you can put it wherever you want. For this example, we'll post the forecast our chatroom:
