How To Use the LeadMaster Proposal and Document Generator

Proposal and Document Generator

Since its inception, LeadMaster has provided the ability to extend the finite amount of application fields by incorporating Flexform (Custom Form) functionality. In other words, whatever information you would want to capture on a LeadMaster record can be achieved through the use of a Custom Form. The look and feel of the form – although very easy to use and interact with – is very basic in nature and not ideal for printing and sending to a 3rd party.

But now, with the advent of the Proposal/Document Generator, you will have the ability to create eye-pleasing MS Word documents and merge them with your Custom Form document. The Proposal Generator in the LeadMaster CRM allows you to merge data from the CRM into a Word document. The Word document can be any type of documents – for example, a legal document or a proposal.


In order to create material used in LeadMaster’s Document Generator, you will need two menu items added to the Custom Forms/Web Forms/Quotes accordion folder of the Main Admin menu of the specific workgroup.

These two menu items are:
a) Create & Map HTML Forms to Custom Forms
b) Proposal Generator – Manage Documents.

User must have the privilege to create Proposals
Logon Management Page > Viewing/Editing Records > Create Proposals must be checked/enabled


  1. Add and Design Custom Form as you normally would but upon adding, you will need to choose “Smart” as your Form Type.
  1. Once the Custom Form is compiled, navigate to the Main Admin menu and click the Custom Forms/Web Forms/Quotes accordion folder. From there, choose the Create & Map HTML Forms option which will navigate you to the Webforms Template List.
