Data merge for pricing tables via API

We're pleased to announce that we've delivered data merge feature for pricing tables via API. Now you can work with pricing tables via API in a more flexible way and prefill all types of columns.

Frequently, our customers need to name columns in the pricing table according to names in their system and that's where data merge may help. The data merge feature is available by default and the only thing you need to do is enable it in API as well.

Here is how you can check what names your columns have with the data merge feature by default and change them.

Column names for API are presented on the left

To use these column names instead of default ones you need to add the data_merge boolean parameter as true (false by default) into the pricing table object of the Create Document from PandaDoc Template request body and use them in the data section.

                                },
                                "CustomText":"testcolumn"
                            },
                            "custom_fields": {
                                "Fluffiness": "5 / 5"
                            }
                        }
                    ]
                }
            ]
        }
    ]

As a result, all values from the document creation request will be properly matched with columns in the pricing table of the newly created document.
