We’re continuing work on the new and improved GroupDocs look and feel. We’re told you that we’re making changes to the GroupDocs dashboard and GroupDocs Viewer, and we’re also changing GroupDocs Annotation. We’re not stopping there. We’re also making changes to GroupDocs Assembly.
GroupDocs Assembly is an app that lets you automate document assembly and automation.
Think of your document as a form that you can use to create several new documents from. You start with a template document. In the template, there are a number of fields that will collect information, for example, name, address, date. (These are straightforward examples but you can use GroupDocs Assembly to create really sophisticated forms and collect all kinds of data.)
In GroupDocs Assembly, associate questions with the different fields. We call this “creating a questionnaire”. When you send the document out, the recipient answer the questions. When all questions have been answered – when the questionnaire is complete – a new document is created. The new document looks like the template but contains all the information that the recipient provided.
GroupDocs Assembly helps you set up documents that you can use again and again to collect information and generate unique documents. It’s convenient, safe and quick. To make it easier to use, we’re improving the interface and adding a workflow to help lead you through the assembly process.
The assembly process follows the same path every time:
- Choose a template.
- Assign questions to fields.
- Build pages.
- Preview and test.
GroupDocs Assembly’s new assembly workflow leads you through the set-up process.
Manage Questions and Preview the Questionnaire
Assigning questions is really easy. Each of the variables are listed and you simply type a question for each.
When the questions have been assigned, preview the questionnaire to see that it looks as expected.
Familiar Drag and Drop
GroupDocs Assembly, like GroupDocs Annotate, benefit from the changes we’re making to the GroupDocs dashboard. You’ll recognise the drop files area, for example. Drop templates there to upload them in an instant.
