New triggers functionality in PandaDoc Salesforce version 1.30 package allows you to implement a custom automation functionality on top of PandaDoc integration. Here are some example:
- When documents are started from an Opportunity and the document is completed, a downloadable PDF Version will show up in the “Notes and Attachments” section in the Opportunity record. (Available out of the box)
- Change a stage of an opportunity to X if document status is Y. E.g. change an opportunity state to “Close Won” when document status is Completed. (Available out of the box, stages mapping is configurable.)
- Get data your customer entered in a document and update an opportunity with this data (requires custom development)
- Get products from a document when it’s sent/completed and sync it back to an opportunity Products Line Items (requires custom development)
