Microsoft Power Automate, Logic Apps and PowerApps are great tools for workflows automation. Using them in combination with Plumsail Documents will allow you to ease and improve the work even more.

With help of our Plumsail Documents connector, you can generate documents from complex HTML, Word, Text templates, convert email messages and documents to PDF. If you then need to process these PDF files, or if you just want to handle some preexisting PDF files, it is the right time for Split PDF and Merge PDF actions to come into play.

Merge PDF files

Merge PDF action may be useful in situations when you want to combine different sections of a contract prepared by a few employees, merge multiple attachments from a customer, add a signature page to an existing document and in many other cases.

Below you can see an example flow that gets a few DOCX files from SharePoint, converts them to PDF and then merges these files into a single document.

Please review the detailed description of this case in our documentation.

Split PDF files

Split PDF action can be used for splitting a document into different chunks or extracting a page of a document.

Split PDF action will help you with separating a manual or book into chapters, extracting a specific page from a contract to send it for approval or with sending a portion of a document to a colleague to complete.

In the screenshot below, you can see an example flow that gets a file from SharePoint, extracts a page from it and sends the page by email.

Please, check out the full article with detailed instructions for every step in our documentation.
