Differences in Syntax in Docs Made Easy Version 1.10.

Old Syntax


New Syntax



In version 1.10, we’ve transitioned to a more streamlined syntax for standard merge fields, now enclosed in double curly braces for increased consistency.

2. Child Relationship Merge Fields:

Old Syntax

{!Account.r.Contacts.LastName} {!Account.r.Contacts.Name}`

New Syntax

{{TableStart:Account.r.Contacts}} {{Name}} {{TableEnd:Account.r.Contacts}}


The handling of child relationship merge fields has transformed. In version 1.10, we introduce a structured approach using `{{TableStart}}` and `{{TableEnd}}` for clarity and improved document organization.

3. Query Data:

Old Syntax

{!QueryData1.Id} {!QueryData1.Name}

New Syntax

{{TableStart:QueryData1}} {{Id}} {{Name}} {{TableEnd:QueryData1}}


The syntax for querying data has been revamped to create a more readable and efficient format. With the introduction of {{TableStart}} and {{TableEnd}}, organizing and presenting queried data becomes more intuitive.
