Hi Frank, we are working to integrate Zappier so you can define actions to be performed on the PDF once rendered.
Good news Isaac thanks! ;) Any ideas about the timeline?
Hi Frank, yes it's in beta mode though, you can try it out here:
There are two triggers, Order Complete and File Upload. Use the order complete option.
Also, what cart framework do you use? Wordpress?
Ok, should work fine.
Please note, the trigger is only called when the order status is set to complete.
Okay great. Since I auto-complete every order ( all paid in advance via paypal etc ), this should do the trick.
Thanks a bunch Isaac!
@Jennifer Adler-Potts: Not sure what you mean with save it - I've created it there and activated it, there's nothing like a save button.
Anyways, although Zapier seems to be pretty good, I decided to code something myself. It fires, as soon as an order gets into the shop, creates a work sheet for the client's operators with all the details needed for the production, download the files from the amazon s3 server and pack all that into a zip file and send it via ftp to the client's wanted destination (hot folder). As the orders are all paid in advance, I can use a hook to the order process and fire my script(s) as soon as the order is retrieved in the backend.
Furthermore I added a REST API call to the created info file which enables the operator to remotely set the order status to "completed" as soon as the print process begins or is completed.
