Create and Manage HR Documents from ZOHO Creator October 06, 2014

Managing your HR processes can be a daunting task.  From collecting new employee information, tracking time off, and handling payroll, there is a lot to keep track of and a lot of documentation to go along with it.  No sweat!  There’s a great tool called ZOHO Creator and you can build a customized HR app that allows you to manage all of your HR data across your entire business.  Then, combined with WebMerge you can generate employee contracts, insurance applications, state forms, and more.

In this example we’re going to show you how you can generate new employee intake documents with WebMerge when an employee is added to your ZOHO Creator app.  We’ll be generating a new employee contract automatically with a little added help from Zapier.

To get started, we are going to create a new document in WebMerge and upload our Employee Contract template (a Microsoft Word document).  This template is already setup with merge fields like {$FirstName}, {$LastName}, etc and that tells WebMerge where to put the employee information throughout the contract.
 


Next, we’re going to integrate the delivery of the document with SignNow so that we can get the employee’s signature on the contract.  Go to the Delivery tab for your document setup, then click New Delivery.  Select the SignNow option and then authenticate your SignNow account.  Complete the rest of the settings and indicate the signer info, then save the delivery.
 


Now, it’s time to setup the Zap so that your ZOHO Creator information automatically to WebMerge.  Login to Zapier and create a new Zap with ZOHO Creator as the Trigger and WebMerge as the action. 
 


Once you authenticate your accounts with Zapier, you’ll need to pick your WebMerge document that you want to merge and then map the merge fields with the corresponding ZOHO Creator fields.  This tells Zapier how to send the data to WebMerge to make sure it is put into your merged document correctly.
 


After you have mapped the fields, go ahead and jump down to the Test section.  This allows you to send test information from ZOHO to WebMerge using your settings and you will see how the process works.  If you need to make any changes, do so now.  Here’s what our contract looks like:
 


Congrats, you’re done!  Now you can run your entire HR department through ZOHO and automatically create any documents you need with WebMerge.  What other ways can you use WebMerge in your business?
