Paperless Office- Merging Documents Overview/ How-To
Realeflow offers you a way to have information from your property file automatically merged onto your paperwork to save you time from filling this information out each time. Within the Paperless Office feature, you will see Merging Documents. We provide a key for the fields of information that can be merged onto your paperwork.
Simply add the code provided to the specific areas of your paperwork before uploading it into your Realeflow account. Once that document has been uploaded it can be accessed in every property file you have and will merge the information from whichever property you are currently in. So if you have paperwork that you use often, simply add the codes we provide to your documents 1 time, and now you will never have to manually enter in the information onto your paperwork again!
How to Create Merging Documents
**Your documents will need to be uploaded as a WORD document in order for the merge to work.
