Overview of Sharepoint and document generation Contributor

Document generation, also called the docgen is an automated way to create and distribute documents. Instead of manually creating documents, you design a model-specific information and completes the model during the production process. document generation is the most comprehensive and effective to automate the documents.

An example, suppose your company offers a service and send invoices to customers each month. Its database contains details such as name and address of the customer, order date, quantity ordered, and so on. You can create a template that has everything, but the information - the design, company logo, contact details, the standard language, etc. When ready to run the invoice, the system will automatically extract the required information and create a single invoice for each customer. Your business can be waste of valuable resources without generating documents.

- Documents that are easier to find, distribute, create, and enforce business rules upon
- The ability to automatically save multiple versions of documents
- Workflows that can be applied to documents and complex business rules that can be set up for the lifecycle of templates and documents

- Documents that can accessed, updated and viewed by multiple people with just a few button clicks
But SharePoint is not necessarily a comprehensive document generation of the box. Just because SharePoint is a great ability does't mean that society must be immersed in every document and every model in it. It would be better in the long run if you spend some time initially to understand how many versions you want to save, the best way to organize your documents and save old documents. It is also wise to establish some sort of structure, continuous monitoring, or if you are in danger of unstable and chaotic

For example, SharePoint has no built-in scheduler, which can be critical for document generation system without problems. third-party solutions such as Arrow Wind integrate and extend SharePoint to facilitate the generation of complete and detailed documentation.
To sum up, SharePoint is a solid document generation system that can be improved with some forethought and additional tools. If you’re looking for an easy-to-use, web-based document generation system, SharePoint is a good place to start.
