Make is one of the fast-emerging no-code platforms that let you connect between apps and automate business logic or scenarios by enabling data transfer between them. PDF4me integration in Make takes advantage of this new technology to enable users to automate their document workflows with almost zero code.

HTML pages are documents designed to be displayed in a Web browser.
