Web to Print Design Template: Variable Data Publishing
The Aleyant eDocBuilder™ web to print designer software supports the ability for your customer to merge a database into a template for truly personalized results. When creating templates, simply indicate that a field must originate from a database (such as an excel file) supplied by your customer.
Data Mapping, Merge & Preview
When your customer uploads a database file, they will be given the opportunity to "map" (match) the columns in the database to your fields in your forms-based design template. eDocBuilder will quickly merge the first few records and provide an instant preview of what the merged results look like. Try the example below.
In addition, the database can be used to dynamically select images in the web to print design template.
Barcode & QR Code Generation
Data—whether from a data file or hand entered by your customer—can also be used to create barcodes (including QR codes), or used in scripting for more advanced scenarios. Try the example below.
When eDocBuilder has completed the merge, it can optionally impose the file for you. The merged file is highly optimized, so the resulting file size is surprisingly small.
Data Mapping & QR Code Example
The template example below is for a postcard that will be merged with a user supplied database. It highlights some key capabilities:
