NULL - Variable Data (Like Print Merge in CorelDraw)

No Longer valid.

 

A form or the capabilities of capturing variable data, for same design and different info like names, dates, etc., a Google form would help, it just would need a script to generate the form with the order/customer details for reference of the order, other ideas?

If this could be done internally would be great, this way it would be production ready, one could create a template with the variable fields setup in the design, all the customer would have to do is enter the data in the appropriate fields, then Deco would generate the product design with the variable data ready  for production, this could be use for Name Badges, Plaque Plates, Awards, Mugs, keychain's, etc.

Would combining team names and a pre-designed template work?

I'm not sure, I have not used Team Names, but I believe, that TN are formatted to always have text and numbers only, or can you add graphics, and variable data fields in specific locations of the product?

I've used Team Names and you can remove the name or number so you just have one location. I'm not really clear on what you are asking, but when I've used Team Names (just testing, no actual orders) I received a print ready file for each "Name". Are you asking for something different?

Team Names use a name and number by default but you can resize and rename the fields. Works great for badges but my customers don't really understand it.

I'm going to start a discussion topic about it in the forum, it maybe a lot of back and forth, I think is better over there to keep up.

You can see some info about this that I post in the forum here http://www.deconetwork.com/forums/general-questions-and-how-tos/4598-variable-data-print-merge-in-coreldraw#8495

Ok, I did even further more testing, and I see Team Names with the potential to do what I was asking, it just need a little modifications, like what you are asking, to be able to change the button tittle.

Team names also have (or used to have) some weird field formatting that was intended for (very specifically) names & numbers on jerseys. Would love to be able to turn that off

Adam, I agree with you, I also made comment here about it http://www.deconetwork.com/forums/general-questions-and-how-tos/4598-variable-data-print-merge-in-coreldraw#8514 Also I think that we should comment about this subject at Sara's Idea about Changing the name of "Team Names" since is related, this Idea is no longer valid for obvious reasons.
