Overview of the Adobe Document Generation Tagger

Get an overview of the Adobe Document Generation Tagger that’s designed for use with the Adobe Document Generation API.

Adobe Document Generation API is a web service that allows you to generate PDF and Word documents from templates and merge data. For quick template authoring Adobe Document Generation Tagger allows you to easily tag your Word templates for use with Adobe Document Generation API and add signature tags for Adobe Sign. Let’s briefly walk through how to tag a document. First, paste or upload your JSON dataset and click Generate Tags. Place your cursor where you want to insert a tag, search for your tag name, select it and click Insert Text.
You can also use advanced tags for more complex data. For example, images can be dynamically inserted from a data value, tables and lists can also be created based on your table records.
Simply select your table record, which is an array in your dataset. Select the column record and click Insert. When the document is generated, a new row will be created for every item. You can also create calculations, like the sum, using numerical calculations. Simply select the record and item to calculate and insert the tag. Parts of your document can be included conditionally based on a data value, simply select the section of your document, define the formula that determines its inclusion and insert the condition, which wraps around your section. For documents that require an e-signature, you can also insert Adobe Sign text tags. Simply select the signer you’d like to place the fields for, choose the type of field you want to place and insert the tag. As you can see, it only takes a moment to tag a document and it is now ready for use with Adobe Document Generation API and Adobe Sign. - -
