I am using Drupal 7.12 and Webform2PDF 7.x-3.0. Is there any feature to save the PDF file to server using this module? Or how can I do this with this module? Or is there any other module ?

  • Reading the Modules's documentation is a Drupal best practice. – niksmac Apr 23 '12 at 8:30

No you cannot save it on the server. One way would be to create your own code to grab the pdf with a tool like cURL and save it to the server. You could trigger your code to run every time a webform is submitted throught Rules and Webform Rules. You could issue a feature request to the module developer in case he wants add this fuctionality.

There is also this module: Fill PDF that does what you require. It is quite harder to get it to work with Webforms since you need to build your own pdf form template.

    @Nikhil Mohan Because webform2pdf creates a page that when you visit it renders the pdf at that time. Like I said other modules like Fill PDF give the user the option to save the pdf to the server. Other modules like Views PDF allow you to save the pdf to the server using Rules. This module does not offer this functionality to do it automatically. – Perisdr Apr 23 '12 at 14:54

    @Nikhil Mohan Not sure I understand your attitude. Have you used the module? If there is a way to save the file to the server automatically then please share it as I am also interested. As I said the pdf file does not exist in the server. It is rendered when you request the download pdf page. Please correct me if I am wrong. – Perisdr Apr 24 '12 at 8:26
  • I accept my bad. Thanks for your notification. And i am not a bad guy. – niksmac Apr 24 '12 at 8:28

Have you read the documentation ? It states

The Webform2PDF Drupal module is an extension of the Webform module. It can be used to generate PDF document from the results of a form. The generated PDF document can be attached to the form summary e-mail sent by Webform module, or it can be downloaded from the /Results/ page.

As it can be downloaded it should be in your server. You can access it by typing the URL for sure.

See Webform2PDF Module Users' Guide
