If you had the chance to play with a Monax public template, you might have noticed that the previewed document updates automagically, replacing the blank fields with the key data you are providing. 

How do I conjure the wizard?

The magic resides in the curly brackets:
{{Hello! We are the curly brackets!}}
 

These symbols will tell Monax wizard (baptized as Scalia, in honor to Antonin Scalia, but also because it makes your agreements scalable!) that there goes a parameter (the piece of text that needs to be updated). 

Your task before uploading the file into Monax would be to replace the pieces of text that need to be updated to the following format: 

2*opening curly brackets + [Parameter Name] + 2*closing curly brackets
e.g.: {{ Parameter Name }}

Example:

  • How your text should look like:

"That the cost of supply of materials will be {{ Price }} and payable by the Purchaser to the Supplier."

  • How it will show up in Monax:

"That the cost of supply of materials will be _________________ and payable by the Purchaser to the Supplier."

  • How it will display after updating the field:

"That the cost of supply of materials will be 2,000.00USD and payable by the Purchaser to the Supplier."

Notes:

  • The file type must be .docx or .md in order to unleash the magic.
  • The file type in Monax will be automagically converted into .pdf.
