Re: Error using populate word template

Hi @Barber_Chris,

 

I have some updates for you.

  1. SharePoint sites is not working and a fix is being rolled out.
  2. OneDrive works but we need to difine a Plain text field otherwise it won’t detect template elements and it won’t display the dynamic fields.

Please make sure your file has Plain Text content controls like this:

I have made the following test which is working now.

By the way, about how to add content controls, please check the following doc:
