Office Templates uses Microsoft Word mail merge technology to layout you want using field values. Field values are contained inside of tags that look like this: «reportName». You can download a template reference guide that will show you a list of field values and available artifacts in the currently selected project in Jama. You can use these field values to copy and paste into a template that you upload to Jama.

Note: If artifacts and/or fields are added or updated in the selected project in Jama, then a new version of this document, which will include these changes, should be downloaded.
