I know I’ve been pretty quiet on the FetchReport.com front, but it’s only because I’ve been working on a huge new feature that will save you all a lot of hassle. Introducing the FetchReprt PDF Creator (beta).
Currently with most report upload systems you have to upload your report through a separate, web-based system after you’ve converted it into PDF format, and then send your client the link. Well, with the FetchReport PDF Creator, the process of converting to PDF, uploading, password protecting, and sending to your clients are handled with a few clicks of your mouse.
Here are the 5 easy steps:
- Click “Print” in any Windows program (whether it’s Microsoft Word, home inspection reporting software, or any other application).
- Choose FetchReport PDF Creator from the printer list
- Enter the report’s title
- Enter your client’s e-mail address
- Click Upload
That’s it–you’re done. Once the file is uploaded, it is converted to a PDF, password protected, and sent to your client (and anyone else you choose) automatically.
Any feedback is welcome. Again, this is still beta software, so there might be a few bugs. There are two issues that I’m aware of:
- The system does not work on Windows Vista yet (it should be working on Vista within the next 10-15 days).
*]Addresses typed into the “Send To (additional)” field cannot have spaces between the commas (it must be address1,address2 – not address1, address2). This issue should be fixed in a few days.
