Jump to solution

How or can i create a MS word document in a doc library using one of the several doc types in the library? The ides is a user has a task to accept and i want them to select one of the custom templates form the doc library. Easy way is to have the user create just pick from the doc library but i want to use a workflow.

Hi Brian Cullen‌,

You cannot create a new document, however what you can do is create 3 docx file and call these Temp1, 2 and 3.

Then part of the workflow copy the template file and rename for your new file. You can copy the template document from a Template Library, and paste it into a document library that matches it's content type if needed.

Because you are naming the new document you will know the exact URL so if you then need to update the document using the Word services actions etc, you will already be in a good place with a lot of the info you need.
