Example: Creating a Customer Invoice with Docs Builder

Let's say you run a small business and need to create invoices for your clients. Docs Builder makes this process a breeze.

1. Template Setup

You've created a Google Docs template for your invoices. It has special placeholders, denoted by double curly braces, like this

Customer Name: {{CustomerName}}
Invoice Number:  {{InvoiceNumber}}
Amount Due: {{AmountDue}}

2. Board Data

In your board, you have an item for a recent transaction:

Name : John Doe
Invoice : INV-001
Amount : $1000

3. Automatic Replacement

When you use Docs Builder, it automatically takes this information and puts it into your template. So, it replaces {{CustomerName}} with John Doe, {{InvoiceNumber}} with INV-001, and {{AmountDue}} with $1000.

4. Generated Invoice

The result is a complete invoice that looks like this:
Customer Name: John Doe
Invoice Number: INV-001
Amount Due: $1000

5. Save and Send

You can then save this invoice and send it to your client, all within

Can I edit the generated document after it's created?

What types of templates can I use with Docs Builder?

Docs Builder supports templates stored in Google DocsTM. These templates can include text, tables, images, and other standard Google DocsTM elements.

Setting up a template is easy! Simply create a Google DocsTM file with placeholders that correspond to the data you want to pull from your board. These placeholders will be automatically replaced with actual data when you generate a document using Docs Builder.

Can I use dynamic data from my board in the templates?

Yes, absolutely! Docs Builder allows you to use dynamic data fields from your board. These fields will be used to replace the placeholders in your template with real-time information.
