I've built a form with a repeating section. The repeating section has numerous data fields that users fill out with information about nonconforming products. This will include things such as product lot numbers, a unique identifier to look up the incident, and identifying information about the nonconforming products (i.e., the nature of the non-conformance, the quantity which is non-conforming, etc.).
My users have requested for me to build a way for them to generate a short PDF report based upon the information they have input; however, they don't need all of the info from the repeating section.
I had hoped to be able to do this using jsPDF. However, I'm finding it less malleable than I would like for my needs. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions.
Any help would be appreciated! I've been lurking for a while and gotten a lot of amazing tips from here. The community is truly fantastic.

Hi there Brandon!
You can do this with the Document Generation action. It will intelligently build tables or rows for you based on the amount of data in your collections / repeating section. If you're in O365, it's already there - if you're On Prem, some assembly is required:
Using Document Generation is pretty easy. You can have multiple templates and use conditions to choose which one. The variables / items / tables are built into Word as an App Add-On and show up in a panel on the right. Getting your first table done is always a bit tricky, but happy to help with that.
Thanks for the reply Rhia!!
I'll need to get in touch with the IT group on site to see what's involved with setting this up. I wasn't aware this feature existed. That's fantastic.
