    Great Automation. We use it to add the cost center for new tickets by incoming e-mails.

    PDF View + Automation are very powerfull plugins. These tools allowed me within a few hours of work to automatically email to my clients PDFs containing key information about my projects, such as custom fields data and even screenshots of google maps dynamically integrated into my Jira issues ! Support is also nice and very effective.

    Really a great Plugin. We are using it for saving Issues as a PDF an directly attaching it to the same issue. The support is also very fast and helps a lot.

    This is a great plugin and we highly recommend. We are a highly regulated organization and must provide documentation to auditors all the time. This plugin allows us to create PDFs of our Issues to provide as evidence. The automation in the plugin saves us time from manually generating these canned reports.
