Document templates

You can use the functionality of the Document templates to automatically generate documents in Spin CRM, such as: Contracts, Commercial offers, Invoices, etc.

How to prepare document template

If you already have the document you want the system to generate automatically, open your document in the editing system. Find the places in the text where the data should change automatically – let’s say Name and Surname, company code or name, enter values for the variables. The values of the variables can be found here:

1.Click on System settings;
2.Click on Document templates;
3.Select which module you want to upload the template to and click the Add template button;

4.In the form that appears, on the right, you will see a table called Template variables;

If the text requires you to automatically enter today’s date, enter $ {current_date} in that space, so if you are about to generate a document, that date will automatically be filled with today’s date.
