The Microsoft Word format allows you to receive your submission data in the form of a .docx file.

To set up this destination, go to your Forms page and locate your form. Then, click the settings icon to view the menu and select Destinations. On the following page, click New Destination.

Note: By default, two destinations are added every form created.

Note: Depending on the subscription package you have, your available destination options will vary.

A new page will load, and on it you will see different destinations to send your data. In this example, E-mail has been selected. After selecting the destination, choose the Word .docx format.

Supported Destinations

E-mail

Box.com

Dropbox

Google Drive

Microsoft OneDrive

Amazon S3

HTTP(S)

SFTP

Slack

Evernote

Sharefile

You will also see an option to send your images to a service other than Device Magic. If you would like to do this, select from the services provided. Please note, choosing a service other than None (inline) will result in a hyperlink to the hosted image being placed in the file generated by this destination instead of the actual image. See this help article for more information.

If you like, you can add a Description in your Destination Options box, this is optional.

At this point, you will see Word .docx Options beneath the chosen destination. Click Show Options.

This section is where you can add a file name (not required), view the available placeholders (by clicking Show me placeholders I can use in this file name), and download a sample template (so you can see how your MS Word form will look, and so you can see the available placeholders). For advanced formatting options, see the If Statements and For Loops articles.

In addition to that, this is where you can upload your own customized Word .DOCX template. Use the available placeholders for your form, design it according to how you want it to look when you receive it, and upload it in the space provided. More information on customizing templates can be found here.

Beneath that section, you will get to your chosen destination's Configuration section. Based on our E-mail destination example, it will look like this:

Fill in the e-mail addresses you want to send the MS Word version of the form to.

In Step 7, you have the option to create Destination Rules on when you want the Destination to be active. To learn more about how Destination Rules work, visit our article here.

You can now click Create Destination.

At this point, you will be taken back to your Forms page, where you will see your new destination added to the list. Upon submission of data, you will receive the MS Word version of your form at the destination of your choice. 

A Note on Filtering Destination Deliveries by IP Address

We’ve received a few requests asking about firewall restrictions for the IP addresses of our email destination deliveries. Check out this article for more information on how Device Magic’s delivery services work, and how that relates to specific IP addresses for those services.

This completes our overview of adding the Word destination. If you have any questions or comments feel free to send us a message at support@devicemagic.com
