How to store SmartForms input in a workf...

I suppose you could pass the input as URL parameters, but this feels clunky (especially with a high number of inputs).

Hi all


I need your help please.


I have a smartform which users enter some detail into, the process is then as follows:

Email HR with link to online form

HR inserts some info and submits on form

That info should update a MS Word template

That template should be saved as a PDF and emailed to user to print and sign


I have a problem in that i cant find anywhere were you can "Convert" or "Save As" a word doc to pdf without using sharepoint.

I found this link to another post and got really excited but doesnt work on K2 Blackpearl:
