What is a tag?
A tag is a ‘Rich Text Content Control’ element in Word that has an identifier which tells the rental contract generator what information to put inside of it. Some examples of information that will be filled in are prices, client names, a table of locations and dates of rentals.
These are the list of content control tags supported:
ClientEmailAddress: The email of the customer
Enable the developer tab in Word
In order to create a rich text content control the first thing you must do is enable the Developer tab on the ribbon. To enable the developer tab see this link: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-ca/library/bb608625.aspx
- In Word 2016, Go File > Options.
