Pinned topic 1 document from 2 doors modules

‏2013-05-10T14:19:58Z |

If I want to generate 1 word doc containing data from 2 doors modules (say 2 different sections of the word doc) I think there are 2 ways to do it.

1. I can add 2 data sources to my template and then refer to my template from a doc spec

or

2. I can create 2 separate templates and then refer to each from my doc spec

What are the pros and cons of each approach?

Thanks

    Hey Sean,

     

    whenever possible (the outputs from the 2 modules do not depend on each other) you should use the second solution as it allows to keep your documents modular and the templates highly reusable. The only "con" that I see is that RPE will introduce a section break  "next page" between the 2 parts of the output which does not happen with (1).
