Creating and editing documents

Once you've logged in, it will provide you with a list of your existing templates with the ability to Edit/Delete and create your own.

The Master template will be used as the basis to create each subsequent template. It contains margin, layout settings and a custom header and footer that can only be changed by Jupix.

Creating a Template

  2. Complete the Template Name with a suitable name to identify the document
  3. Assign it to the relevant Departments in which you would like the the document to appear
  4. Assign the System Placement. This dictates where in the system you'll be able to create the document from. Choosing the correct placement will also provide you the necessary merge tags to enter into the template
  5. Click the appropriate Automatic System Document, if applicable, from the dropdown menu. You can assign letters to a specific action within Jupix such as Tenancy Agreement or Sales Pack

Help with creating content

    • Always leave this set to Yes
  2. Choose your branch letterhead, if required, by selecting from the options in Apply Master Document
  3. Select who the letter will be addressed to. This can be multiple contacts which will produce multiple letters
  4. You can select whether to include the Re: Property Address merge code and if you would like to sign the letter off with the Signature Block merge code. This will include Yours sincerely, Users name and Company

Once these have been completed, you can save the template.
