Using Release Candidate Version:

To use the RC version, please switch the Dynamo instance URL to:

This means that, for example, the full URL of Template Builder will be

Contacting Documill:

There may still be changes before the final release. Please report any findings to

The first release for 2019 will contain several major upgrades. Therefore, we ask you to test your current templates with the RC version. While substantial effort has been made to secure template backward compatibility, if you find any errors or differences, please report them to us.

Collaboration Module:

The Dynamo Online Collaboration module is a new package for commenting (Chatter integration) and approvals-related features.

Chatter integration is now easier to master with one powerful content command: Chatter doc linker.

Additionally, commenting inside editable areas is now possible, and users can mention other users in comments.

For a detailed demonstration, refer to the Collaboration Module demo video.

Please note that the Collaboration Module is an extension to Dynamo Online and requires an additional Collaboration Module license.

Office Output Formats:

Office output formats are back! Now, Dynamo Online templates can generate Office Word (DOCX) documents, Excel (XLSX) spreadsheets, and PowerPoint (PPTX) presentations. Outputs are based on native Office templates loaded and composed through Dynamo Online templates. The templates use a new content command notation that doesn't require any additional client-side add-ins.

Please note that Office output support requires an additional Office Output Module license. Read more here.

New PDF Rendering Engine Version:

The PDF rendering engine has been upgraded from version 8 to 10. We recommend comparing PDF output to the current version and reporting any differences to us.

With this update, standard Windows fonts can now be used in PDF documents. Now you can use your favorite fonts like Calibri, Cambria, Arial, Arial Black, Georgia, and many more (Arial Narrow is not part of the standard font set).

New Home View and Icons:

Template Builder's home view in the advanced UI has a new layout and icons. Template parts are grouped and displayed by part type, each having its color and icon used in part tabs. The home view also includes a navigation pane to easily locate desired parts.


More Flexible Flow Logic:

In the previous version, flow logic was divided into a maximum of three segments. However, in the current Enterprise/Custom version, there can be a maximum of 50 segments, while the Standard version allows a maximum of 15 segments.

In the new version, segments can be started in any order. A segment can direct the flow execution to segments that are both before and after the current segment. This is a major change that provides new possibilities for reusing logic code and configuring the flow based on different needs.

Additionally, in the new version, it is now possible to stop the flow execution at any step with the new "finish" command. In the old version, the flow execution always progressed to the next segment.

Related new commands: "start" and "finish".

  • start

  • finish

  • debugBreak

  • sum

  • sfdc-chatter-doclinker

  • DOCX logic and content commands

  • XLSX logic and content commands

  • PPTX logic and content commands

Using Dynamo Clauses in Templates:

Dynamo Clauses can now be easily added to templates through the Template Builder Data tab. See full documentation here.

Using Related Lists:

The template designer can now add local and global related lists. In the local option, the related list command is added to element logic, while in the global option, it's added to the main flow.

Returning to Previous State in Template Builder:

Template Builder now remembers more custom settings when the template designer returns to a saved template. For example, the state (show/hide) of the left and right panels and custom widths will be remembered. Also, the last used tab in the advanced UI is remembered.

Improved Tab Management:

Tabs in the advanced view now have a right-click menu where the template designer can close several tabs at once and open the source view of the current tab.

New Documentation Structure:

Every command now has its article for better navigation and search experience. We have also improved terms used in the documentation.

We have also added a new section for Online Template logic: Template Logic (RC).

New Documentation Categories:

  1. Content Commands:

    • Content commands affect what content documents will have. They have different implementations and notations depending on the template format. In HTML templates, content commands are implemented as additional element attributes.

    HTML Content Commands (RC)

  2. Logic Commands:

    • Logic commands are used in the template logic inside flow steps. These commands define how data is processed and loaded from Salesforce.

New Place to Manage Data Formats:

Now also data formats can be managed through the document template editor. The Formats tab is next to the Styles tab, forming a place to manage document style and formatting.

Template Types:

Advanced templates are no longer separated in the start view. There is just one template type, as it has always been. A template can have basic and advanced features, and those can be accessed through basic and advanced UI. The template author has the freedom to move between those two UIs.
