How to generate and download multiple documents at one time in PHP or MODX
Posted on 2016-10-06
I have a course booking site where students and agents are able to book courses.
The agents are able to book a course on the student's behalf.
Student 1 - booked direct
Student 2 - booked via agent 1
Student 3 - booked via agent 1
Student 4 - booked via agent 2
Student 5 - booked direct
Student 6 - booked via agent 2
Student 7 - booked via agent 3
After the course is finished, I need to generate invoices to each agent who has booked a student on that course.
What I would like to be able to do is to click a button and 3 Word or Excel invoices are generated and downloaded. (one for each agent)
I would prefer if they were not downloaded as part of a zip file, as I think this will confuse the admin staff (and owner :-) )
Is there a way to do this, either in MODX or PHP?
Thanks in advance.
