Mail Merge

Perform a mail merge using the data from your Google Contacts

With this Ultradox automation you can perform a simple mail merge from data of your Google Contacts.

Ultradox will generate a PDF document from a Google Doc template for each contact of your contact group and will merge the data from the contact into the generated PDF document.
