Convert a Word document to PDF using Document Generation

Jump to solution

I've got a trial version of Nintex for Office 365 and I'm trying to simply convert a Word document to a PDF. Basically a user drops off a Word document they have created into a drop off library, I want it to be converted to PDF and dropped into another library to go through a signing process.

The Document Generation action is very confusing. I don't want to use a template, I just want to convert my document. I also can't see the Convert Document option anywhere.

Does anyone know how to achieve my requirement in Office 365? Am I limited by trial the license?

Kind regards,

Rebecca

Princess Unikitty, from my knowledge, on O365 version is not available the Convert Document (It's for onpremise version).

The "Document Generation" action could create the PDF from a template.

Have a nice day.

There are another commercial products that can convert your SharePoint files to PDF.

Thank you for your response. A shame there's no way to achieve what I need. Templates will work in some of my scenarios but in others the word document just needs to be plainly converted to PDF. Here's a suggestion on feedback site: Update document and convert document controls for Office 365 version – Customer Feedback for Nintex, but they seem to have ignored the simple document conversion option and focused on the generation from templates.
