Adding Attachment Name To PDF



I have a sheet that, once a submission is submitted via a form, a PDF document with all columns written is generated containing all the information that was submitted.

Is there a way to add a row in the PDF that will list the name of an attached attachment?

    I have a Smartsheet that allows users to post attachments:

    I also have a PDF document setup that will auto-populate a PDF document with the results of each submission to the sheet:

    E.g. if someone makes a submission with an EDMS ID of '12345', a PDF will be generated that will show the column next to EDMS ID filled with '12345'. I was wondering if there was a way to take the attachment(s) that a user adds to their submission, and have the attachment title(s) automatically populate next to the Attachment Name field.

    Please let me know if you require any further clarification.

    Hi @Benjamin O'Leary

    No, there currently isn't a way for Smartsheet to read attachment names and automatically pull that into cell data in the row.
