Data Markers

The Data Marker tab provides a list of all the Data Markers associated with your account. These are either built in, or have been created within your Matter Templates.

To add data markers to Word Documents, copy the marker from InTouch and paste it into the required place on your template.

To add data markers to PDF documents, follow the guidance here.

InTouch will automatically check and alert you to formatting errors when you upload your document to InTouch
