Set up PandaDoc Templates to use with Microsoft Dynamics CRM
Next, we need to setup our templates and what data we want to pull from Microsoft Dynamics CRM. In the following sections, we will discuss the setup of “Roles” and “Variables”.
Use PandaDoc Roles to import Contact information
Warning:This functionality isn't available to eSignature plan users.
With PandaDoc Roles, we can import contact information (First Name, Last Name, Email Address and Company) from Microsoft Dynamics CRM Opportunity object:
- Create a Role first: open your template, click Roles at the top, add a Role.
- Access Role variables: click the variables icon on the right-hand panel, find your role variables (they will have the role name in the beginning), copy and add them to your template.
Set up your variables to pre-populate your documents with opportunity data
This functionality isn't available to eSignature plan users.
Variables will save your time with auto-filling information from an entity into a document.
- Date variables formatting depends on the default date format set up in your workspace settings.
- Currency variable formatting is based on the recipient view locale. Custom money variables will pass to the document without a currency symbol and formatting.
Here's how to view data that you can send from an Opportunity, Account, Quote or Contact in Microsoft Dynamics CRM to PandaDoc documents. Click on the gear icon in the top right corner > Advanced Settings. Under Settings > Extensions, click on PandaDoc Settings.
Here you can pre-set the data to pass from Microsoft Dynamics CRM. Please note, the data must be set up for each entity separately (in case you are going to create documents from more than one entity) and the data will not cross-populate.
- Under Configure tokens, you will see the standard entities: Opportunity, Account, Quote and Contact.
- Click +Add entity to set up data flow for your custom entity.
- Each entity has its own list of fields that can be sent to PandaDoc. Select an entity you would like to configure, e.g. Opportunity.
- On the left, check the box next to each field you want to pass, it will be added to the variables/tokens list on the right. Then click on the green button Save mapping.
Now, add variables/tokens to your template.
- Go to a Microsoft Dynamics entity, find the PandaDoc panel, click the gear icon > Variables and copy a variable name with the square brackets.
- Open your PandaDoc template and add the variable on the template.
Passing information from Microsoft Dynamics into PandaDoc (via fields)
You can pass data into PandaDoc fields similarly to how variables operate. Unlike with variables, however, you don’t need to include square brackets.
In the list of tokens, copy the token without square brackets into Merge field.
Once the document has been sent, the recipient will see the pre-filled data and be able to update this field, provided the field has been assigned to them.
Send product information to your documents from an Opportunity or a Quote
Warning:This functionality isn't available to eSignature plan users.
To do this, add a pricing table to your template, click on Properties at the top of the pricing table, and toggle on the Data merge feature on the right. When you create a document from Microsoft Dynamics CRM (Opportunity or Quote) using this template, product information will be sent to the document (Item name, Description, Price, Discount, Tax, Currency, SKU, Quantity, and custom fields.)
Sending and Tracking your documents
Warning:PandaDoc pulls Document recipients only from Microsoft Dynamics Opportunity fields: Account, User, Contact. Opportunity Stakeholders are not supported.
- Open an Opportunity, Account, Contact or Quote, go to the PandaDoc module, click "Create new document".
- Choose a template or select the templates you’d like to bundle, then select Add items and assign recipients to roles, if applicable;
- Go back to the record > PandaDoc module and review your document status there.
Team Permissions to gain access to the PandaDoc integration
In MS Dynamics, click the gear icon in the top right.
First, select Advanced Settings. Next, under Settings > Security > click on Security Roles > Open the Team member Role, go into Custom Entities tab and find PandaDoc Tokens Mapping > Read Permission must be set in order to use the integration.
Data Migration for New version 1.2.1
If you have installed previous versions of the integration and updated to Version 1.2.1, you will need to go through the process of Migrating the integration from the old solution to the new one.
- Go to PandaDoc Settings inside of MS Dynamics
- Review and look for the button to “Migrate”.
All token settings will be moved from the old solution to the new solution.
If there are any issues with this process, please contact our Support Team.
Removing PandaDoc from Microsoft Dynamics
