You have to organize and pull together several documents into one large one. Perhaps you work in a law firm and have to put together an estate plan. Or documents for a real estate closing. There are programs that generate documents with “if/then/else” programming clauses. But isn’t there an easier, less complicated way? The people at NetDocuments, the award-winning, secure, cloud-based document management application are proud to introduce SetBuilder – an easy way to organize, compile and distribute document sets. It can be used for closing documents, filings, wills & estate planning, or even to create HR documents for new employees.
Here’s how it works:
Step #1: Create a New Set – SetBuilder is an add-on for NetDocuments. Once it is enabled, go to Add New Set and give it a name. Click on the Add button to continue.
Step #2: Add/Drop In Your Documents – You may add documents outside of NetDocuments through a Drag & Drop method; or go to where they are already located in NetDocuments and copy them into the set. SetBuilder accepts a variety of file types such as Word, Excel, .PDF files, etc. Once in, you may change the arrangement by moving the files around so that the order resembles a Table of Contents or outline.
Step #3: Add Placeholders, if Needed – If you don’t have all of your documents completed, you may add placeholders to plan which document you need in a category and have a place for it when you are ready to add it.
Step #4: Compile the Set – When all documents are assembled and ready for publishing, click on the button Generate Binder. Fill in the fields and click Generate Binder. That’s it! SetBuilder will compile your documents into one PDF document with an optional Cover Page and/or Table of Contents, ready for delivery or use.
If you make document sets like these, you have the option of cloning a set, making it a template for future use.
SetBuilder by NetDocuments gives users the advantage of standardizing their work on multi-document compilation for use across simparl cases or programs. It reduces the chance of skipping steps or leaving document out, opening your organization to various risks. And it helps users become more efficient.
