Under Consideration

Improve Document Templates

Not sure if you can improve the current document templates or a complete new one must be made but this is some of the functionality I am missing:

- Be able to hide parts of the documents when certain conditions are met

- have different page headers/footers according to some rules

- conditional text formatting

- watermarks

- functions to calculate numbers or transform texts

It very important to have ability to hide a part of document when certain conditions are met. Without it we have to use an external asynchronous web-service to build documents.

In order to hide parts of the document I have "solved it" (NOT IDEAL) two ways:

  1. Creating different templates and use one or the other conditionally.
  2. Creating a collection in the data model with just one record for each entity. This way if the collection is empty, the fields are not printed in the document.

Again, this is not the best of solutions but in some cases it will do the job.

Most important would be "Be able to hide parts of the documents when certain conditions are met"

Simple syntax would be sufficient as:

[If:variable=x]If true

[Else] If false

[EndIf]
