Basic Variables

You don't need to learn to code, but if you're curious about the code that Documate is inserting in your documents, we tell you all about it in this section. Before you upload Microsoft Word (or .docx) documents to Documate, you need to format the fields so the system can read them.  

Insert simple variable names using double curly brackets

In your Word document, surround your variable name with double curly brackets, with a space between the brackets and the variable name, like this:

{{ VariableNameHere }}    

Example:

Dear {{ FirstName }},  

This is your document dated {{ DateVariable }}.  

Love, {{ LawyerNameVariable }}
