Variables are can play a large role in document templates. When creating a document using a template, any variables used are replaced with the values stored in the object they are linked to. This makes document templates a convenient way to create documents and populate them with data from a specific contact, task, or data tag.

There are certain variables available for document templates, in addition to the variables used in task templates. A complete list of variables available can be found in the section Documents / Document templates:
