Conga Composer Getting Started
Spring '11 Release
Conga Composer lets you generate documents and spreadsheets by gathering data from Salesforce.com and merging to a template. The resulting file(s) can be printed or emailed and you can log the actions you’ve taken in Salesforce. Most Composer solutions utilize PointMerge to let you create individual documents by clicking a button from a record in Salesforce. Conga Mail Merge, included with your subscription to Conga Composer, features MassMerge, a step-by-step wizard that guides you through the process of creating batches of documents. You can access MassMerge by clicking the Conga Mail Merge tab.
