Certain properties of DocumentsCorePack templates consist of fixed text and Dynamics 365 fields. There are also some additional function calls available and data
from Dynamics 365 can also be manipulated.
Several DocumentsCorePack properties support the same syntax. A list of these
properties can be found at the end of this article. This article covers the basic syntax and the advanced options that can be used
- The basic syntax:
Fields from Dynamics 365 are enclosed by << and >> when you insert them from the tree view.
Figure 1: Fields
Fixed text must be typed manually into the text field and must be enclosed by single quotes (‘ ).
Figure 2: String
To combine several Dynamics 365 fields and fixed text you have to use the plus sign (+).
Figure 3: Plus
- The advanced syntax:
Function calls can be applied to Dynamics 365 fields by using a . (dot) and the actual function call.
There are also standalone method calls supported. The function call must end with brackets.
Certain functions may also support parameters or have mandatory parameters.<a title="Function pos with parameters 2 and 5

|<>.firstcaps()||displays the first letter in a|
sentence in capital letter
|<>.invert()||reverses every case||Result: “mscrm-ADDONS.COM”|
