How to add information of the current user to a document

It is quite common, that user information shows up within the document itself. (e.g. a “Best regards, firstname lastname” at the end of a quote).
This Step-By-Step tutorial describes how to add this relation to a template. In this example the Quote_base.docx template, that comes with the installation of DCP for CRM 2011, is used.

Please note: DocumentsCorePack (DCP) Client version 5.27 or higher is mandatory!

Since DCP Client v5.27 it is possible to use so called predefined relationships. This means that it is possible to predefine relationships like quote->quote products or a relationship to the actual user in a global mscrm-addons setting.

Please note: in DCP server versions < v5.15, the settings for the actual user are installed by default.

If your server version is 5.15 or lower, please open CRM, navigate to Settings-> Products and open DocumentsCorePack:

Once there, create a new “”-settings key:

Keyname: DOCX_Global_Relationships

    User Info
    Use all the fields from the logged<br/>on user in your document.
    <fetch mapping='logical' version='1.0'>
     <entity name='systemuser'>
          <all-attributes />
               <condition attribute='systemuserid' operator='eq-userid' />

Once this is done, simply restart MS Word and the DataProvider on the Client. Click on the [Insert Mailmerge fields]-button and switch to the Additional–tab. You will see the global relationships by expanding the New Relationship/Entity–entry.
