Create merge fields

Once you create a template, insert merge fields as placeholders to personalize your content. For example, you can greet your customers with their name, add a watermark to your letter, include a profile link or an image, add a personalized subject for each recipient while sending the mail, and so on.

To insert merge fields,

  1. Open your template document.
  2. Click More > Fields tab.
  3. Choose Merge Fields under Dynamic Fields. Alternatively, click More > Automate tab. In the Prepare panel, choose the Merge Template option and Prepare document for merging panel will open. Under Manage Fields, click the Create Fields button.
  4. Click Create Fields to create new merge fields. Create Fields pop-up will open, where you can create new fields, specify label names and configure field types. Click Create to finish creating your fields.
