NOTE: Datasets is a legacy feature and will soon be replaced by our new Checklist Pin field, that will greatly improve how we use and update dataset values.

You can output the values of the assigned datasets in an Excel report or a Word or PDF report.

The placeholders that can be used for datasets are:

  1. {{dataset-DATASET NAME}} - this placeholder returns the dataset value, that was added in a pin. For the words written in CAPITAL LETTERS, put your file name. It is important to enter the exact name of the dataset to get a value e.g. when your dataset name is "room list" then use {{dataset-room-list}}. - If your dataset name includes spaces, then please use - as separators, e.g. when your dataset name is "room list 1" then use {{dataset-room-list-1}}. - Example: The dataset you imported into docu tools is called "Craft List" or "Room Book" so the placeholders in the template must be {{dataset-Craft-List}} or {{dataset-Room-Book}}.

  2. {{all-datasets}} - All dataset links, which are attached to a pin are shown in the following format "dataset title: ID - title".

  • Example: Crafts: 08 - Electro; Raumbuch: 2.008 - WC/Shower
  1. {{alldatasets-all-info}} - With this placeholder you can export all additional informations of a datasetlink to your report.

  2. {{dataset-column-DATASETNAME--COLUMN NAME}} - This placeholder gives out only the value of the specific column of the dataset link. Note the --!

  • Example: For the following dataset, called „room info“:

Room number | room function | room size | number of doors| FEG12131 | living room | 24 | 4 |

In the report you can only show specifically the value of the room size with the placeholder: {{dataset-column-room-info--room-size}} —> 24

Or the room function with: {{dataset-column-room-info--room-function}} —> living room
