If Lead Docket has been set up for Vinesign, and you are sending your documents from within Lead Docket, templates can be made more easily customizable with the inclusion of Lead Docket custom merge codes.
Lead Docket merge codes can be added into a Vinesign template and, when the template is sent from within Lead Docket, the merge codes will fill automatically with the information from that lead. This can be used to automatically fill information like client names and contact information, so the client doesn’t have to.
To set up these templates, begin in Lead Docket. Go to Manage > Document Templates in the left side menu, and then click on the Field Map button.
You will see the list of merge codes in Lead Docket. Find the merge code you would like to add to the template and copy it, including the brackets.
In the Design page, click + Text Field in the Signer panel to create a custom field.
In the Field Properties panel on the right, paste the merge code into the Merge Code field. Save the template.
Repeat this process for any other merge codes you would like to insert in the template.
Once you’ve added all desired merge codes into the template, don’t forget to save the template. Since this template can only be used when sent from Lead Docket, it is suggested that you indicate this somewhere in the template’s name to differentiate from those templates which do not include merge codes. For example, you might have “Lead Docket Welcome Letter” and “Welcome Letter.”
Once you’ve saved your template with all desired merge codes, just send the template from within Lead Docket as normal to have the fields fill out automatically.
