Reuse fields across documents

After spending lots of time building out a Woodpecker template with a list of intertwined custom fields, the last thing you want to do is do all that work over again for a new document. Thankfully, Woodpecker provides a mechanism for reusing fields across documents so you don’t have to recreate fields again and again.

 
 

Copy field data from one document

To reuse fields from one document in another, simply navigate to the Menu and click the “Reuse fields” menu item. You’ll see a page that will allow you to copy the current fields to your clipboard. Click the “Copy field data” button. Read how to paste this field data in a new document below.

Paste field data in another document

Open up any document, navigate to the Menu and click the “Reuse fields” menu item. You’ll see the same page from before where you copied your field data. Paste the field data from before using “control + v” (PC) or “command + v” (Mac), or right click inside the input field and click “Paste.” Click the “Import field data” button and Woodpecker will automatically recreate the fields from your previous document.
