SPARK Document Generation
This topic applies to SPARK Workflow Enterprise Edition only.
SPARK Workflow Document Generation activity enables the workflow designer to create custom documents in Word, Excel, PowerPoint or PDF with data dynamically merged from tagged templates stored in SharePoint.
This activity needs
SPARK Document Tagger (Office add-in) to be installed on your office applications; the installation process runs aromatically once you open any document template for tagging.
Important note: You need to have Office 365 Word, Excel and PowerPoint online applications, Office 2013 desktop editions or later versions in order to be able to use this feature as
SPARK Document Tagger
add-in will not work if you “the workflow designer” don’t have at least one of these versions up and running at your local machine.
SPARK Document Generation will enable you to use SPARK Document Tagger to add tags to templates for generating documents. The tags are mapped to variables and workflow data such as columns, Tables and images available in the workflow or SharePoint in general. The add-in loads these data when you open the document template for tagging from SPARK workflow designer.
For information on this Office add-in, see
SPARK Document Tagger.
