Now let’s take a closer look at the new feature and its advantages.
The Processes present a user-friendly and intuitive interface for creating documents from templates.
A quick look at the Processes interface
To come up to the Processes, you need to register or login to the Plumsail account and choose Plumsail Documents from the products.
After clicking the Processes tab in the left menu you’ll see a starting point.
The Processes have a few steps inside:
❇️ Create a new process
Here you give a name and upload a template. Learn how to compose templates in our documentation.
❇️ Configure a template
On this step, you set an output file name and its extension, add watermarks and protect PDF’s. Once everything is set, you can test the template to see how the final document will look.
❇️ Add a delivery
It’s possible to configure as many deliveries as you need.
❇️ Start a process
When every step is done, start your process. There are options on how to start:
Check out some Processes examples on our site.
Key advantages of creating documents from a template with Plumsail Processes
Let’s have a look at the main differences between the Processes and other ways to manage documents.
Create and convert without Microsoft Flow
Now Plumsail users can create documents from a template and convert them to PDF just in a few clicks without using Power Automate (Microsoft Flow). It’s possible to upload DOCX, XLSX and HTML templates and set the process to deliver the result files in PDF format.
But in case you need to implement some sophisticated scenarios with the help of Microsoft Flow, there is an action Start document generation process. So, it’s easy to use the Processes with Microsoft Flow as well.
Plumsail account as storage for templates
All the templates used in the Processes are stored in your Plumsail account. There is no need to upload them elsewhere.
With the Processes, you can complete a series of actions but will be charged just for one document.
Using separate Microsoft Flow actions for:
- creating documents from templates,
- converting them,
- protecting PDF’s,
- and adding watermarks, -
means charging for every action. With the Processes, you can do all of this configuring only one Process.
Try the Processes to save your money.
