Insert tags using the Checkbox Word Add-In

 

What tags can you insert into your Word document using the Checkbox Word Add-In?


The two types of tags that can be inserted in your document include Variable Tags and Rule Tags. Variable Tags simply refer to a reference variable enclosed in curly brackets (e.g. {{TXT2}}). Rule Tags refer to the syntax for conditional variable references, loops and e-signature meta tags.

    Note: You will notice that the opening and closing curly brackets are highlighted in green. This helps you clearly recognise the opening and closing of the Condition Rule Tag as well as the content in between, especially when using nested Rule Tags. 


  4. For the Condition Rule Tag, replace the italicised placeholder condition and content (i.e. {{# insert condition}} insert content if condition is true {{/}}) with the appropriate condition rule and the content (e.g. {{#AUS=="YES"}}{{CompanyFull}}{{/}}).

    Note: 
    To add loops, repeat steps 1-4 by replacing Condition Rule Tags with Loop Rule Tags. Learn more about conditional and loop syntaxes that can be implemented in Rich Style Document Templates.
