The platform is a two-tabbed user-friendly software that allows you to create all the questions that are relevant to your documents, and populate them into your documents, allowing them to dictate the flow of your documents.

Documate's Word add-in is also available in the Microsoft app store for Docassemble templating of words, plural use, and conjugations, which eliminates the need to use Jinja syntax on Documate. Use our software to learn code or to never have to code - ever!
