Conditional Pdf Generation
Only generate the Pdf document if a certain field is in the affirmative. I.e., I only need a Pdf if it is a new application, therefore, I have a field named "New App". If "New App" is "Yes" then generate the Pdf file.
same if you need pdf created fx as Invoice after Approving initial Dheet ( fx invoice number generated and added after approval)
