Easily create personalized Writer documents in bulk with your Zoho Creator data

Hi everyone,

 

We're excited to share that we've added Zoho Creator as a data source for mail merge templates in Zoho Writer.

 

Zoho Creator is a powerful low-code application that collects different types of data. By configuring Creator as a data source for your mail merge templates in Writer, you can create personalized documents for a variety of purposes, while maintaining your brand's image and improving your productivity.

How can you use this integration?

 

Based on your needs, you can configure Zoho Creator as a data source in two ways:

 

  1. Use Creator as a mail merge data source in Writer

  2. Trigger Writer's mail merge from a workflow within Creator and use Deluge tasks to generate documents.

By integrating Zoho Creator with Writer, you can make data flow from your Creator application to Zoho Writer automatically. It only takes a few clicks.

 

This integration fetches your data from Creator and makes generating complex business documents quick and easy.

 

Here are some ways the Writer-Creator integration can help streamline document creation and other business processes:
