In this article, we will guide you through the process of preparing the source file and creating documents in bulk using Bigle Legal.


Preparing the source file

The source file is the foundational basis for bulk document creation. It's a file in XLS, XLSX, or CSV format created with tools like Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets and has tags linking it to a Bigle Legal template.

This file must contain the necessary information to generate multiple documents in an automated and efficient manner. It should include:

  • The name of each document to be generated.
  • The tags for the fields used to personalize the documents.
  • The data corresponding to field responses.


Proper preparation of this file is essential to ensure accurate correspondence between the data and template fields. Here are the steps to prepare it:

1. Select the reference Bigle Legal template: Choose the Bigle Legal template you want to use for creating your documents. You will need it to reference its fields and tags when creating your source file. 

Here's an example of the template form we'll use:


2. Add the document names: In the source file, use a single column to write the name of each document to be generated. In the following example, "Document name" is the column title, and we're creating five documents named "NDA - TechSol," "NDA - InnovateX," etc.

3. Insert the field tags: In the remaining columns, place the text of the tags for each field of the template (do not include the curly braces, "{}"). This ensures that the data is placed correctly in the created documents.

4. Enter the responses for each field: Each of the columns should be filled with the response for that field related to the document in its row.

  • For option fields, you should not input the response but rather the tag of the corresponding option, as shown in the following image:

5. Save the file: After you have entered all the data, save and export the file in XLS, XLSX, or CSV format.
