Problem
How can I insert tags into a Fees Word template? For example, I would like my template to have the client's identifier and the partner identifier as a reference. How do I add these tags to the template?
Resolution
To add tags in a Word template, there are two stages:
  • Select the tags in the ‘Tag Selection’ screen.
  • Add the tags to the Word template itself. Select the tags in the tag selection screen The ‘Tag Selection’ screen opens at the same time as the Word document template. At this point both screens can be used simultaneously to create and save the template. The ‘Tag Selection’ screen has two main functions:
  • To choose which tags are available to merge into the letter template from the database,
  • To save the template once it has been written. To select the tags in the ‘Tag Selection’ screen:
