Convert Google Form responses to PDFs

You can convert Google Form responses into PDF's in a few easy steps. It is simple to create PDFs which contain all kinds of different question responses including images, dates, numbers and text. After you've opened Portant Workflow, select your Google Form, then connect either a Google Slide or Google Doc template, then add question tags to your template and finally select 'Save as PDF', and voila!, you’ve automated Google Form responses into PDFs!

We know how painful and monotonous it can be to copy and paste form responses into documents and then export them as PDFs. That’s why we’ve come to the rescue.

With Portant you can connect your Google Form, click a few buttons and PDFs will be magically generated whenever you receive a response. You can then share the PDFs via customised emails. Just select the options you require and place your documentation on autopilot.
