Creating a Document Query with the PV0 Parameter in Docs Made Easy

PV0, or Parameter Value Zero, is a critical parameter within Docs Made Easy.

Using the parameter, the app returns data specific to the record you are working with.

For example, if you are gathering Contacts with a query, rather than returning ALL Contacts in your Salesforce org, pass the ID of the master record into the pv0 filter on the query so that only Contacts related to the record you are working with are returned and merged into the document.’

This feature empowers Docs Made Easy to return data specific to the record you are currently working with, revolutionizing how data is extracted and merged into your documents.

Functionalities of PV0:

  • Record-Specific Data Retrieval: PV0’s primary function is to filter and retrieve data that is directly related to the master record ID. Instead of returning all data, PV0 allows you to focus on the specific record you are working on.
  • Dynamic Query Filters: PV0 enables dynamic query filters, ensuring that the data pulled into your documents is always up-to-date and tailored to the context of the master record.

Users must use the pv0 parameter to run the query while adding dynamic filters in a query.

If there are multiple filters, then parameter values will be referenced as pv1,pv2, and pv3 going upto N numbers.
