Fill in Word template that contains placeholders

Good Day,


I want to fill in a Word doument (template) that contains placeholders with information gathered in a survey app. I can currently do it with WebMerge, but since we use Office365, I would like to do everything in 365 without occuring additional costs.


  • How do I create placeholders?
  • How do I use a template with the palceholder in Flow
  • Can the document be saved/exported to PDF in Flow without paying additional costs


Thanx in advance

Hi @Geogeek,


For your requirement to create placeholders and fill in a Word doument (template), I afraid that there is no any way to achieve your needs in microsoft flow currently, the functions are not supported in microsoft flow currently.


For your requirement to convert a Word doument to a PDF document, you could take use the "Convert file" action of Onedrive connector to achieve your needs.


Best regards,


Thanx Alice.


Is it perhaps possible to accomplish this using Sharepoint?


Hi @Geogeek


Sorry for the function is not supported in sharepoint connector, so it is not possible to accomplish this using Sharepoint.


Best regards,
