DocumentsCorePack Property Syntax (CRM 2015)

Filed Under(CRM 2015 | DocumentsCorePack 2015) By mwilhelmer

Certain properties of DocumentsCorePack templates consist of fixed text
and CRM fields. There are also some additional function calls available and data
from CRM can also be manipulated.

Several DocumentsCorePack properties support the same syntax. A list of these
properties can be found at the end of this article. This article covers the basic syntax and the advanced options that can be used

  1. The basic syntax:
    Fields from CRM are enclosed by << and >> when you insert them from the tree view.

    Figure 1: Fields

    Fixed text must be typed manually into the text field and must be enclosed by single quotes (' ).

    Figure 2: String
    To combine several CRM fields and fixed text you have to use the plus sign (+). 

    Figure 3: Plus
  2. The advanced syntax:
    Function calls can be applied to CRM fields by using a . (dot) and the actual function call.
    There are also standalone method calls supported. The function call must end with brackets.
    Certain functions may also support parameters or have mandatory parameters.
