Configure your spreadsheet

  1. In Google Sheets, enter all your relevant header-labels

    The first row is set aside for headers (your own and Publigo's reserved keywords like Merge Status and Merge Date). In our example, we will generate documents with First Names and Last Names.

  1. Add all the relevant information

Info: If you plan to create your template directly in Section Generate your documents with Publigo.

Create your document template

  1. Create a template in your Drive using Google Sheets, Slides, or Docs)

  1. Include {{Merge fields}} to personalize your documents. We added {{First Name}} and {{Last Name}} in our example (see our headers with the same header-labels in Step 2).
Here’s a snapshot of the Google Slides template that we will use. Everything in this document is static or fixed. Only the merge tags for {{First Name}} and {{Last Name}} will be dynamic - these will be replaced with actual data that we entered in Step 2.

Note: Remember the title of your document (Publigo Certificate of Appreciation) - we will reference this later in the next section.
