What is HotDocs Filler?

HotDocs is a program that can be used to convert actual working documents into document templates for myriad uses. The program is an open-source application and is claimed to be interoperable with most word processing and document creation software at the moment, including Corel’s WordPerfect software, Microsoft Word, and various PDF readers and creators.

The user typically begins by selecting a particular file—HotDocs supports most document formats, from PDF to DOCX—and then scan it in order to detect areas in the contents that can be converted into variables. The rest of the document can be set to stay as it is, providing the base of the template. Hence, for instance, a user can take one letter of application and convert it into a template for all future letters of application he has to write in the future, simply filling out the fields he designated as variables during template creation.

HotDocs is capable of doing much more than this, however. For instance, the program can automate even selections of verb tense or date information to correspond to specified inputs from the user when filling out the template. Thus, HotDocs can be used to generate a multitude of interactive, automated templates that the user can save for personal use or slate for distribution in his organization.
