Autofill presentations Sun Mar 10, 2019 12:18 am • by CCPRW
Hi all,

Nice to see there's a forum for questions regarding Hazel. I'm relatively new to using it (mainly use it for keeping a clean desktop so far :)) but I already like it a lot.

I just had an idea. My first thought is this couldn't be 'solved' with Hazel, because I think it mainly auto moves files, but maybe I'm overlooking something and it actually is possible via Hazel.

I would like to achieve the following:
Someone fills in a question in an online form (haven't decided which one yet, but Typeform looks pretty good) and then that answer gets auto-filled in a pre-made presentation. That presentation is then automatically transfered into a PDF and that PDF is send automatically to the given e-mail adress (in the same online form).

My toughts so far:
1) Online form (like Typeform) could autofill a Google Spreadsheet
2) A Google Spreadsheet coudl autofill a Google Presentation (I think, not sure yet)
3) I need something to autogenerate a PDF out of the Google presentation
4) I need something to autosend that PDF in an e-mail to the given e-mail address

Do you have any idea on how to achieve this?

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Seeing as this is all online, I think you'll need to use something else. Maybe IFTTT can do it (https://ifttt.com).
