Step 2: Launching Portant in Copper

Now that you had successfully installed the Portant integration on your Copper account. It is time to create your first workflow in Portant:

  • Open an opportunity in Copper and you will see the Portant integration on the right hand side, here:

  • Click the "Create Workflow" button in the integration and a new tab will open and create the start of a workflow in Portant.

  • The next thing to do is connect Portant to Copper (you only have to do this once). To connect, click on the Copper block, here:

  • Then click 'Connect Copper to Portant'

  • Then authorise Portant to use your account:

  • After you have completed this step the Copper block will say "Copper is connected"

  • Then you can add copper fields to the document template. For more details on how to personalise the document, please check out our document personalisation section.

  • You can also edit the output document name and add {{tags}} to personalise each output.

  • Finally you car customise the name of the workflow by clicking the workflow name (so you can select to run the right one in Copper)

Step 3: Running the Workflow

  • Back in your Copper account, you should see the name of your workflow and a "Start" button next to it. Click the Start button to run the workflow.

When you "Start" the workflow the data from the opportunity (and connected objects) will be used to create a new output document and the document links will be added to the activity feed and the files section.
