DocRaptor's HTML-to-PDF API makes it easy to convert HTML into a PDF document on Zapier, especially with our hosted documents add-on.

Step 1: Create a Trigger

You'll need some kind of trigger event. For this example, we'll use Zapier's Forecast app:

Step 2: Add the Webhooks by Zapier App

Use Zapier's built-in Webhooks app and select the POST action:

Step 3: Setup the DocRaptor API Call

For the URL, use "https://docraptor.com/docs". Make sure the Payload Type is set to "json". All the data options follow DocRaptor standard API parameters.

The only required parameters are "type", "document_content", and "hosted". You can optionally defined "hosted_expires_at" and/or "hosted_download_limit":

Leave all these options on their defaults:

Lastly, make sure you have a DocRaptor account and insert your API key followed by a pipe character "|" (it's normally above the backslash) with no spaces as the Basic Authentication key:

Click Continue and give everything a quick test.

Step 4: Do something with the PDF

That's all! From there, you'll have an awesome PDF and you can put it wherever you want. For this example, we'll post the forecast our chatroom:
