Merge documents to PDF


The 'Merge documents to PDF' flow merges upto 10 documents into a single PDF document. 

Use the Merge document array to PDF action to merge more the 10 documents or where the files for merge are dynamically set.

Please refer to the Supported Document Types articles for a complete list of the different file formats / document types which are supported for conversion.

Default Parameters

The default 'Merge documents to PDF' flow action parameters are detailed below:

  • PDF Filename: The filename to assign to the resulting PDF document (including file extension).
  • Filename *: The filename of the file to be processed (including file extension).
  • File Content *: A Base64 encoded representation of the file to be processed.

Please refer to the Obtaining the 'File Contents' Parameter article for guidance on how to obtain the 'File Content' parameter ready to provide to an Encodian flow action. 

Operation Count

The final merge operation count is determined using the following calculation:

Merge Action (1) + (No. of Documents Converted to PDF) = Total Operation Count

For example, merging 48 PDF documents;

1 + 0 = 1

For example, merging 48 non-PDF documents which are also converted to PDF before merging:

1 + 48 = 49

For example, merging 612 documents of which 9 are also converted to PDF before merging:

1 + 9 = 10
