We, at Formstack, know that efficiency and time to value are crucial to our customers. One of the biggest challenges organizations face when using new digitization tools is the time it takes to go from idea to execution. This challenge often stems from the need to learn new tools as well as the time required to build digital workflows from the ground up. At Formstack, we empower your teams to work smarter with easy-to-use tools that automate repetitive tasks. With our newest release, AI-powered template creation in Formstack Documents, we are bringing the theme of ‘working smarter’ to new heights.  

When organizations are seeking to automate their document generation process, the first step is to create a document template. For those new to document generation, think of a template as a pre-designed blueprint that includes placeholders for dynamic data. These placeholders, or merge fields as we call them, allow you to automatically populate documents with information from various sources. Formstack Documents already offers customers flexibility in uploading existing document templates directly into the tool, choosing from our pre-built template library, or building a template from scratch using our native drag-and-drop document builder. Now, customers can leverage AI-powered template creation to produce high-quality, professional document templates by simply entering a prompt into our AI Assistant - no manual effort required.

Yes, you heard this right. Gone are the days of spending hours formatting documents or having to skim through help articles to get your first document template up and running. AI-powered templates take the heavy lifting out of the process, allowing your teams to focus on more strategic tasks. Simply describe your envisioned document template into the prompt and let our powerful AI Assistant handle the rest. In just a few clicks, you will have an AI-generated document template with relevant text and merge fields placed correctly. This empowers teams across your organization to go from idea to solution with ease, regardless of their technical aptitude. Not only does this unlock efficiency in your process, but it also ensures standardization across your templates. 

Whether you are automating contracts, agreements, invoices or proposals, Formstack is revolutionizing the way you work with new AI-powered automation tools. Achieve your document generation goals with ease, allowing automation to handle the heavy lifting so you can focus on what matters most. Experience the efficiency of accelerated workflows and effortless document generation with Formstack today.
