How to create a PDF or a Merge Document

If you have uploaded templates into Insightly, you can start creating PDFs and Merge Documents. Templates grab information from your records and can be customized to include any information you want to distribute.

They can be created from any record, so long as there is a template for the object type. This includes standard and custom objects.

To create a PDF or Merge Document

  1. Go to a record. Open the Actions dropdown menu.
  2. Select Generate Merge Document.
    If you are creating a Quote PDF, click Create PDF.
  3. Select a Document Template from the dropdown. Click Generate Document.

Emailing a Quote will also create a PDF. 

To email a Quote PDF

  1. Open a Quote. From the Actions menu, select Email This Quote.
  2. Select a document template. Click Generate Document.
  3. Write your email. Click Next to preview the email, then click Next again. Choose when you want to send the email and click Finish.

You can download your PDF at any time by clicking the file's name.


If you notice any errors in the PDF, check your template formatting.
