S-Docs 4.516

Note: See considerations for this release

Major Updates:

Save time with stronger dynamic email functionality

  • S-Docs templates can automatically populate dynamic email settings like Subject, Recipient, and Sender using data from Salesforce. Now, these fields can access even more data, including users’ Runtime Prompt responses and metadata like information about the user emailing the document.

Distributing batch documents is easier than ever

  • S-Docs Mass Merge allows S-Docs customers to generate hundreds of documents at once. Now, users can click a button to download each individual file and distribute them their way. Plus, users can now email the batch with one click even if certain docs don’t generate based on business rules or other criteria. Read more about Mass Merge in this documentation article.

Minor Updates:

General

  • Support was added for querying ContentDocumentLinks that return PDFs to stitch to your current template with the PDF Stitch feature
  • Templates using the PDF Stitch feature now require the Create Salesforce Attachment and link to record or the Create Salesforce File and link to record checkboxes to be checked if the generated document needs to be emailed
  • File name encryption was removed from supplementary DOCX template files (metadata and other files automatically included when a DOCX file is uploaded to S-Docs)
  • Support was added for using special keywords BRACKETOPEN and BRACKETCLOSE to include the [ and ] characters in generated DOCX files
  • Support was added for embedding images stored as Document records in DOCX templates
  • The From field on the S-Docs Email page is now rendered as a locked field for templates that don’t have the Enable user to choose/select from a picklist checkbox checked in the Email Sender Settings in the template editor. Previously, this field was hidden when the checkbox was unchecked
  • The Runtime Prompt Text Prompt option Allow users to create new lines, which allowed users to use the Enter key to create new lines of text in response to Text prompts,  was removed for non-rich text inputs. The Enable Rich Text Input Fields checkbox must now be checked to allow users to create new lines of text

Merge Field Attributes

  • Support was added for the CR (Character Recognition) merge field attribute
    • Usage: This attribute converts text into OCR-A or OCR-B font (Optical Character Recognition), which is used for generating checks and other number strings that need to be read by computers
    • Syntax: {{!Object.FieldName CR="[OCR-A/OCR-B],[FONT SIZE (REQUIRED),[SPACING (OPTIONAL)]"}}
    • Example: {{!Opportunity.Description CR=“OCR-A,20,5"}}
    • Notes: 
      • Only digits 0-9 are transformed. Other characters are ignored
      • Spacing defaults to 0 if it is not specified. Negative spacing values are allowed. The lower the spacing value, the closer together OCR characters
      • Read more about this and other merge field attributes in this documentation article

Apex Button Parameters

  • Support was added for the customAddFilesButton parameter
    • Usage: This parameter allows you to add a custom button to the S-Docs Email page that calls your custom Apex class to query Salesforce File IDs for automatic attachment to the outbound email. Find out how to set up and use this feature in this documentation article

The product team is hard at work on exciting new features making S-Docs more powerful and easier to use. Take a look at these upcoming innovations slated for future releases.

Distribute documents via Secure URLs

  • Routinely distribute documents with PII or other sensitive information? This feature will allow you to send your documents as a secure URL requiring a PIN code to access for added security, bypassing vulnerabilities associated with email attachments.

The Insert Related List interface is getting sleeker and smarter

  • The template editor Insert Related List button allows you to quickly set up dynamic tables that merge field data from related list records. We’re overhauling its interface to provide access to more functionality with an easier-to-use UI.

  • The S-Docs Mass Merge feature allows you to generate one template for hundreds of records at once. We’re adding support for multiple templates to save you time and streamline your workflows.

Secure your signed documents in DocuNECT eVault

Streamline template development with an improved S-Sign panel

More flexibility in your customers’ e-signature experience

  • If your customers decline to sign a document, they’re able to input a typed reason to give you more context. Soon, they will be able to add attachments when they decline a request to give you a fuller picture and keep the process moving smoothly.
