What are Zerion Documents?
Zerion Documents allows you to easily populate a document with the data you've collected, and automatically send it to a variety of locations. The data you collect, whether from one form or many, can be merged into multiple documents.
Zerion Documents provides you with customizable options for any type of document. You can choose from PDFs, WordDocs, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations or create your own using Zerion Document’s simple document builder.
What is a Microsoft Office Zerion Document?
Microsoft Office Zerion Documents allow for a document to be edited after a merge. Much like the Fillable PDF, you will upload a template, with the merge fields, and then map your data to those fields. The biggest benefit of the Office Document is the ability to open and modify the file after creation.
