Purchasing Request Form in Smartsheet
I want to produce a purchase request form in Smartsheet and I'd like to bounce a few ideas off the community. Please see the attached sample of what's used now.
Originally, I was hoping to use Document Generator to map the fields of a fillable pdf to a Smartsheet grid and then have people fill in this PDF to populate the Smartsheet. If I understand correctly however, data only flows one way from Smartsheet to the PDF and not vice versa. Can you confirm?
I could possibly create a form in Smartsheet, but it would certainly not look as presentable as this Excel sheet does. Are there any other mapping solutions to produce a form similar to this for people to fill out?
Are there any APIs (like Zapier) that might have similar functionality to what I am seeking?
How do other purchasing teams utilize Smartsheet?
Any advice you have would be truly appreciated. Thanks.
