Workflow rule to download PDF attachment to local device

Currently, I created a workflow to send an email with PDF attachment. It would be better if PDF attachment can be downloaded to local device with a workflow rule. Thank you.

I think what you might want has been covered in this post.

I managed to use workflow to save PDF file in default drive and save the filename with β€œ.pdf” in one column of my table [Installation File]. The column type is β€œFile”. I also learnt from Marketing Docs Sample. However, when I clicked image to view the PDF file in my app, I got 404 error. What did I do wrong? Please advise. Thank you.

More than likely there is a mismatch in the path of where the file is saved and where AppSheet is trying to retrieve it. Double check the paths you are using and confirm your understanding of where AppSheet will be looking for the file. It may not be as you think.

I set the path in my table under [Installation File] column as shown below.

Then I set an action to open the file as shown below.

I checked the path few times. It was correct. What did I do wrong? Please advise. Thank you.

After I removed β€œ/” from the path. The problem was solved. Thank you.
