Advice on automating document creation

Hi,

 

This is my first post on here, and I’m pretty new to power apps in general, so I’d be very appreciative of any advice given! Apologies if I’ve posed this in the wrong place.

 

I'm trying to find out the best way that I can build a proposal to send out to potential clients by using a template and adding in objects based on the requirements but using a form for the sales team to use. The most simplified way I can list is as follows:

 

1) Sales team opens form and enters variables e.g. number of people in the client business.

2) When Sales team select option to 'create' proposal, power app takes selected variables and corresponding quick parts and adds them to template.

3) proposal document is made available document library.

 

Is this a possibility with power apps or am I asking too much of it?

 

Thanks,

 

Andrew

Here's a post that I just wrote about how to send metadata to Flow, and Flow generates a Word document with the Quick Parts populated.

Re: Advice on automating document creation

I have also written a blog based on a similar context insofar as using Quick Parts / Content Controls in a Microsoft Word document “template”. Might help you...
