How it works
The Google Document™ extension '123 Document builder' facilitates the document creation by building your document in 3 steps:
First, choice your basic document template & layout
Second, add the additional text blocks for the document
Third step, provide values for any of the placeholders in the text
You can try the application with the example configuration and the example documents. You would need to configure the documents and text block to your own needs. If someone in your organization has done the configuration, you can choose the existing spreadsheet which needs to be shared to you.
