How can we improve the newest version of Windward Studios Products?

Merge the printed documents

We have letters printed based on the letter (unique)id so when there are 100 letters for example we do have 100 letters(documents) printed which is great and that is how we anticipate the outcome, along with that we have a mail merge process that merges all 100 individual letters to one document, this way the team which prints the letter will have to send the one file to the machine for printing all 100 letters instead sending 100 different individual letters. I want to check and see if we have any process that merges individual printed letters to one single letter as that would save us lot of time in the performance of the tool.

    Hello Laksha,

    We do not currently have any tools targeted at merging documents like this. I have a couple ideas that might resolve this issue.
    1. If you could make a ForEach loop in a template that loops over the letter IDs that you need to output, you could output all 100 letters in one output using that template. This would not be merging documents, but rather outputting them to one document to start.
    2. If you had the filenames for all 100 letters in a database, you can do a ForEach tag that loops over the letter file name, and then use an import tag to import that file into the output. This could also be a solution.

    Please let me know if either of these solutions could help you.
