This application is the replacement for how you mail merge from the IE toolbar.
One difference is that you can also edit/merge an existing document and re-upload this (as a new record) into CRM.
Mail Merge Application incorporates several other features from the IE toolbar, such as:
- "Email Document" - Immediately process without the option to edit opening an email and embedding the document
- "Email Mail Merge Attachment" - Completes the mail merge and opens an email attaching a PDF of the merged document
- "Print Document" - Immediately print without the option to edit.
- "Download Merge Data" - Allows you to save the data from a view to use when building a new Mail Merge document
