Merge PDF

Append a PDF document to another PDF document

Merge given file with given file

pdf.file
merged.file
append.file
merged.mimeType

With this building block you can merge two different PDF documents into a single new PDF document.

You can either pick existing files from your Google Drive or merge files that may have been generated with Ultradox from a template or with PDF documents uploaded from the user of your app.

Use cases

  • Merge Terms of Service to a contract based on customer specific data. This can reduce the amount of templates, if you have multiple contract/ToS combinations.
  • Create a single PDF document out of different source file types, e.g. from a Google Doc and a Word document.
  • Merge attachments of an incoming email into a single PDF document and store it on your Google Drive
  • Let users upload several documents and combine them into a single PDF file

Configuration

Clicking on the bold parts in the title of the building block lets you pick the desired files to be merged from your Google Drive.

You can deselect the picked file by clicking on the x button on the right of the selected filename.

If no file has been picked, Ultradox will load the given file that is stored in the input variable.

 Input prefix

Click on the input prefix button to specify the prefixes for both documents to be merged. This will allow you to merge two different generated or uploaded documents.

Useful combinations
