Is there any way to send a standard PDF to have it assigned to a Custom Object and not use an EmailHandler?

Use Case -

  • Email is generated with PDF, can customise the generation to include anything we want (eg. Salesforce ID) in the subject
    • Email is sent to SFDC email
    • PDF is attached to record, with lookup to Customer Account

Any way this is possible without using an email handler?(code)


  • I have investigated using Email to Salesforce, but this doesn't allow to custom objects, good suggestion to use flow below.

I can't think of a way to do this without a handler, though you might be able to use Email to Salesforce and then use a flow or process builder to move/copy the attachment that's created to the relevant custom object.

  • Ok great, I hadn't thought of using Flow... I'll investigate.
