Take a minute to try out Documill Dynamo (installation-free) - Easy as ABC

Dan Tam Nguyen · January 24, 2023 · 3 mins

Salesforce has become the #1 Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platform. Today, over 150 000 businesses deploy Salesforce CRM as a single source of truth to manage most of their business activities and data.

Among more than 7000 applications specially built to complement the platform, Documill Dynamo provides an easy-to-use document automation solution in Salesforce, which helps Salesforce-powered companies to reach their business goals faster. The SaaS app can boost work efficiency by digitalizing existing manual and repetitive processes that involve creating branded documents, collaborating with stakeholders and e-signing contracts.

In this article (video included), we will show you a quick way to try out Documill Dynamo, without the need for installation and setup. You will get a glimpse of what happens behind the scenes (a template is built in the template builder) and simulate what happens on the stage for end-users (a document is generated in one click of a button and then saved to the respective record).

Target group

We assume you are familiar with the Salesforce ecosystem, either being a Salesforce consultant, developer, CRM manager or process owner, who is looking into a Salesforce document automation solution for your clients or company. Or, you are just curious to check out our Documill Dynamo.

To try out Documill Dynamo on your own, you need:

  • A Salesforce account, preferably with a system admin profile (so that you have sufficient access permissions to the objects and fields) and
  • Basic knowledge about Salesforce CRM and its data model (so you understand the API names of fields).

Getting the first touch of Documill Dynamo

So, the video below will show you a nice and quick shortcut to test Documill Dynamo using our pre-made templates, while leaving the more laborious admin jobs like installation and permission setup for later.

In other words, you will access the Documill Dynamo template builder, which is a development and testing environment, where document generation workflows can be ran.

To see how Documill Dynamo generates a document for a record in a Salesforce org, you can prepare a sample record and fill in the appropriate fields: the related products, record details, address, etc. You can experiment with this in any Salesforce org of your choice, be it your sandbox, UAT/ developer org, production or self-learning org and so on.


A sample Opportunity record filled with details and related products

Follow the video to walk through the following steps:

  1. Login to Documill Dynamo Template Builder https://dae.documill.com/ using a Salesforce Production or Sandbox account.
  2. Select one of the pre-made templates (e.g.: Simple Quotation which uses Opportunity as the main object; Account Brief and Case Response which use Account or Case objects, respectively). These templates have mapped dynamic fields using API names. Just check them out.
  3. Select a test record: you can either use the search bar or insert a record ID of the record whose data you want to display on the template.
  4. Run the test: Click the Test button and a generated document will be shown to you for review. It will look exactly like the one the end-users see in real life, once the workflow is implemented in Salesforce org. You can save the file if you want!
  5. Once the file is saved, you can refresh your Salesforce org and find the PDF file stored in the record.

Documill Dynamo allows you to quickly run a test in its standalone template builder, without the need to install the app in your Salesforce org. You have the freedom to play around with a number of pre-made templates or create new ones inside the template builder within a 30-day free trial period. Documill Dynamo also lets you do more than just generate PDF files. You can design customized workflows by adding conditions and logic, user input forms, request approvals, automated document emailing, e-signatures and more!

To get the solution in your Salesforce org, you can install the Documill Dynamo package from the Salesforce AppExchange and refer to our instructions.
