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:

That worked great, thank you
Yay! 🎉Thanks so much for the update and clarification,
@PDFMonkey. We love to see it and it’s very much appreciated! 🤗
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
You may need to customize the file name and file extension:
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
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.
Please post screenshots with details about how your Zap steps are configured in order for us to have more context, thanks.
