The ability to generate and attach a .pdf document to an e-mail generated by an Visualforce Page e-mail template is fairly straightforward using the <messaging:attachment renderAs="pdf"> capability.  However, this method generates a .pdf file from whatever is contained between the <messaging:attachment> and </messaging:attachment> tags.


My problem is that I already have a .pdf document stored in a Documents folder in SFDC and I want to automatically attach that document to an e-mail generated by a Visualforce Page template without the user having to go through the  the document selection and attachment process.  I don't want to have to re-generate the document, just attach it.


Any ideas?

Hi All,

I'm the Product Manager for packaging here at salesforce.com.  We're currently working on a feature that would allow fields and objects to be removed from managed packages.  This is a popular request and something we're hoping to deliver very soon, but we need your help.  Please respond to this post with any thoughts around this topic.  I've included a few questions to get the conversation going:

  • Why do you want to remove these?  No longer used?  Customers didn't like them?  Replace with a new field?
  • When you deprecate a field/object, what should happen for existing customers?  New customers?
  • Would you have to remove all usage of a field/object in your app before you can deprecate it?  What happens if you've included the field in another formula field, etc?  
Thanks for your time and input!
