The latest version of DocumentsCorePack Server Based supports the population of
metadata into SharePoint. Prerequisites for this feature to work are Client Version 7.31,
Server Version 2015. Proper configuration of CRM and DocumentsCorePack
for the CRM Integrate Sharepoint is needed as well.

The below screenshot shows a property that was created by DocumentsCorePack
with data from CRM (1).

    functionality of Word, or you use the Save template-option of the
    DocumentsCorePack client in order to publish the template to CRM
  5. Test your template [optional]
    As you have made changes to your template you might want to test it quickly. A step by step description of how to test your template can be found here.
