The Multipart capability of DocumentsCorePack (DCP) allows users to create & concatenate documents and document packages that consist of multiple elements. They come in handy when documents need to be assembled from different parts, such as cover letters, terms & conditions, contracts, etc.
Each part of such a document package can originate from a different source, including:
- Documents generated with DCP templates.
- Files located in SharePoint**.
- Files stored as a note in Dynamics 365 (DataVerse).
Please note: DCP allows users to apply conditional logic as well as specific user selection for every element. Thus, the process is highly dynamic and flexible to your needs.
- Proposals (consisting of cover letter, company profile, quote, references, terms & conditions, etc.).
- Information material (assembled from brochures, flyers, etc.).
- Employee onboarding packages (company information, offer letter, legal forms to fill, etc.).
- Prevents redundant tasks.
- Minimizes user errors.
- Saves time (compared to manually assembling document packages).
Example: Generating an Employee Onboarding Package from a contact in Dynamics 365.
In the next section, we will show different ways for such configurations to be made.
How to configure Multipart Documents
Multipart documents are based on an XML defining the elements of the document package. They can be configured via One-Click-Actions (OCAs) in DCP, which offers an easy-to-use UI:
- Step-by-step description: How to set up a proposal using MultiPart.
- Step-by-step video: Configuring an Employee Onboarding Package Multipart document.
Thanks to the XML format of the Multipart configuration, it is also possible to create the Multipart XML directly within your custom code or via Power Automate: Build a Multipart XML Flow that concatenates all documents into one File.
