I have an API call that returns a PDF document, however, the document doesn’t have a file type. Is there any way to change the file type to pdf to be attached to an e-mail?
When it comes through now in the e-mail it just looks like:

Please post screenshots with details about how your Zap steps are configured in order for us to have more context, thanks.
Perhaps the document may not be done generating.
Per the PDFMonkey API: https://www.pdfmonkey.io/doc/api/generate-a-document/#the-document-object
You may have to add a Delay then re-query for the finished document.
There’s no need for a delay as the document is produced as seen in the test section.
How do I convert the file type to PDF
You may need to customize the file name and file extension:
I just pushed a new version of PDFMonkey that now accepts the meta key for direct generations too.
From a test I have done, Zapier seems to be picking up the name correctly and the attachment has the right name in the email I received (at least with Email by Zapier).
To clarify a bit on the direct generation thing. It’s a PDFMonkey feature that does exist but is undocumented as it’s considered unstable in terms of endpoint behavior (meaning we could change the way this endpoint works over time).
I hope this answers the issue in the proper way
Yay! 🎉Thanks so much for the update and clarification,
@PDFMonkey. We love to see it and it’s very much appreciated! 🤗
That worked great, thank you
