Can i link Forms and Word to part automate document completion?

Hello all,

 

Im hoping someone might be able to help me.  I have a word doc that's approx 15 pages of standard text, but the last 2 pages are where you would input information about a project - costs, benefits, timings etc. 

I want to part automate this if I can so that anyone could be lead to complete it - maybe by using Forms? Is this something that I can use power automate for? 

 

Does that make sense?

 

Thanks

Rachel

Hi @rachelhart31 

 

Yes it is possible.  I've a live demo here that does exactly that.

You have to use premium features for the Word steps OR alternatively you can store your dynamic content as metadata on your document list and then use quick parts to populate the word file from the metadata properties.

 

You'll need to setup a word document as a template first off with the quick parts added.

 

Let me know how you get on or if you want more info.

I guess this tells me that it is possible, but I still need to understand how you do that.
