A Merge Field is a field that you input into a document template that auto-fills value automatically when generating a document for a Contact, Matter or Contract.
Amberlo uses Merge Fields to add Matter specific values to Document Templates. For example, if you need to insert a primary client's name somewhere in a document, copy and paste << Matter.Contact.CompanyName >> into the Word document.
When generating the document from that template, Amberlo will pull down the "value" that corresponds to that Merge Field, and fill it in without needing to manually enter in those details!
There are 3 types of merge fields in Amberlo:
- Matter Merge Fields
- Contact Merge Fields
- Contract Merge Fields
