Personal Templates

Personal Template Document Generation

Instantly create personalized Word and PowerPoint documents from within your Excel workbook

Personal Templates allow you to automatically create customized reports from a drop-down list found in the Excel-to-Word Document Automation Add-in. 

If you regularly update certain Word or PowerPoint documents (from data in Excel), this feature greatly improves productivity.

  • Save time and increase accuracy -- avoid manual copy and paste from Excel
  • Any Word.docx or PowerPoint.pttx document "linked" to your Excel workbook can be used as a template
  • Our add-in makes it easy to link and manage your document templates
  • Templates are stored securely in Microsoft Azure cloud storage -- no one else can access your templates or created documents

Personal Templates are an optional (and faster) way to create documents using the add-in
