I know there is a barcode scanner, but I am wondering if there is a capability to do document scanning to pdf, a bit like having access to the Google Drive Scanning Feature? Thanks Ed

You can take a snapshot and use a webhook and any available REST API - for example, convertapi.com - JPG to PDF API. The API for converting JPG images to PDF files - Convert API JPG to PDF API. The API for converting JPG images to PDF files - Convert API convertapi.com

Thanks! In a sentence or two how do you do that?

With the particular API I referred above, if you want to do a POST using a workflow rule defined as a webhook in AppSheet, it seems you would need to be able to get the image as a base64 encoded string and pass it as part of the JSON body. Do you know scripting or are you looking for a non-script solution?

Either way, you may want to read up on using webhook and zapier at help.appsheet.com
