Pass data from Zoho CRM to PandaDoc
Before you start sending out documents from Zoho CRM, set up your template to pass data from Zoho CRM.
Use PandaDoc Roles to import Contact information
With template Roles, you can import contact information (First Name, Last Name, Email Address and Company) from a Zoho CRM.
- Create a Role first: open your template, click Roles on the right, add a Role.
- Access Role tokens: click Content > Tokens, find your role tokens and copy and paste them on the template body.
Set up your tokens to pre-populate your documents with deal data
Tokens will save your time auto-filling information from a lead, company or people record into a document:
- To view all of the available data that you can push from a record in Zoho CRM via tokens to a document, open a Zoho CRM record, click on Send with PandaDoc -> Show PandaDoc tokens;
- Copy a token name with the square brackets and paste it on the template body.
Similarly, you can pull custom fields created in Zoho CRM in to PandaDoc documents. A custom field created in Zoho CRM for a specific object (Deal, Lead, Contact, Quote or Account) will show up in the corresponding tokens list.

Pass product information into pricing table
What will be passed:
- Product code as SKU
- Custom fields as custom pricing table columns except Multi-Select Lookup and File Upload
- Setup “Products” in Zoho CRM and add them to a Zoho CRM record (Contacts, Accounts, Lead, Deal/Potentials and Quotes);
- Go to your PandaDoc template. Select the pricing table and check the option for “Automatically add products to this table”. This will enable products from Zoho CRM to be automatically added into PandaDoc pricing tables.
Note:in order to pass product QTY, make sure the Zoho CRM field name is "Quantity" and not anything else so that PandaDoc can recognize it and map it to the pricing table column.
Pass other product fields from ZohoCRM to PandaDoc pricing tables
Custom product fields from Zoho CRM can be added to the pricing table as a column. On a created document, click Add column > Select column > choose a field from the dropdown.
Custom product fields won’t be included in the pricing table calculation
Pass discounts and taxes
Within the integration, you can pass line item taxes and discounts from Quotes in Zoho CRM only.
On a document (assuming you have created it from Zoho CRM):
- Click inside the pricing table > navigate to the right-hand settings;
- Click Add Discount/Add Tax > set it to Line item discount/tax;
- You will see a discount/tax column added to the pricing table, it will contain a discount value from Zoho CRM.
In PandaDoc, discounts and taxes are displayed as a percentage.
You can pre-set your template adding a line item discount column the same way. When a document is created from Zoho CRM using this template, the pricing table will be populated with the discount value.
Sending a document through Zoho CRM
Now that you have setup the integration and templates, try creating a new document:
- Go to a Zoho CRM record, click “Send with PandaDoc”;
- Select your template, assign recipients to roles if applicable;
- Check your document and send it out;
- Go back to the Zoho CRM record, scroll down to PandaDoc Documents: you can track document status from there.
To uninstall the integration from your Zoho CRM Account, go to Wrench icon > Setup > Marketplace > Find PandaDoc in Installed apps and click on “Uninstall”.
Authtoken limit for your account exceeded
Zoho CRM have set a limit on using their AuthTokens to avoid incorrect usage. If you see the error message like this:
All you need to do is to go to My account > Active AuthTokens and r emove the unused AuthTokens.
Creating a document in the Any Object, does not send data over to PandaDoc
In order to resolve the issue, please go to Setup -> Customization: Modules -> Organize Modules, and move ‘Products’ from ‘Unselected Tabs’ to ‘Selected Tabs’ section. Since ‘Contact’ relates to its parent Account, ‘Account’ module ALSO must be in ‘Selected Tabs’ section – to be able to import documents from ‘Contact’ module.
