View our Pricing & Plans for a detailed list and comparison of features available in each plan.

The Create ZIP File task allows you to quickly and easily combine and compress multiple workflow documents into a single .zip file that can be sent via email, exported as a document task, or accessed directly from the Docubee dashboard.

Include a variety of documents in your ZIP file – documents generated in the workflow, uploaded to the workflow, or combined in the workflow.

Additionally, Docubee’s ZIP files attach signing certificates to included documents when appropriate, ensuring that your data is secure, organized, and easy to manage.
