The task is to create a web application to automate the process of generating PDF files and presentations.
To understand this task clearly, download the PDF "Automation Workflow Process Layout Specials" and review the steps, at the same time, as you go through the instructions below.
The project is to create a web application that allows us to upload CSV/Excel files, select properties and finally generate custom PDF files.
The PDF "Automation Workflow Process Layout Specials" includes the steps that we will go through to create custom PDF files.
Step 1: We should be able to upload CSV/Excel files into the web portal.
Step 2: We should be able to select from 2 different layouts.
LAYOUT 1: Portrait for Monthly Specials, Flyers..
LAYOUT 2: Landscape for presentations.
In this project we will only discuss the steps of Layout 1. Layout 2 will be an extension for this project at an additional fee.
Attached you will find a sample of our previous monthly specials---> PDF File name: February Specials.
We need the EXACT same layout structure (Check attached --->PDF file name: Layout Structure)
The layout is comprised of a:
1. Header image
2. Main title
3. Category title
4. 9 products (images with text) / 3 products per row
5. Footer image
Step 3: We should be able to select a single or multiple categories.
Sub-categories will be pre-checked and automatically displayed after selecting the category.
Moreover, in this step, we should be able to select properties and set a date range.
Step 4: We should be able to select and input a % value for the ATP.
Step 5: Similarly, in this step, we should be able to choose 1 of the options to display price lists.
Option 1: Displays a set of prices (price AA, A, B, C, D, Discount, FOB China Selling).
Option 2: Displays 2 sets of prices: The original and discounted prices.
Again, each set has the same values. We should be able to select multiples prices.
Step 6: Finally, we should be able to click on a button to Generate/Export PDF.
NOTE: ATTACHMENTS: We will provide you the banner, footer, excel sheet and 9 product images (to run a test application).
After the project is complete, we should be able to upload banners, footers and edit images on our own.
