Repeat To Text Inputs

Last review: March 2024

​Occasionally, depending on the end user’s need, it is necessary to have certain portions of a document repeated. The Repeat functionality allows you to do this by applying repeat logic to Text Inputs.

In order to apply a Repeat condition to content (in this instance, a Clause) take the following steps:

  1. Assign a System Name to the Text Input that will control the Repeat
  2. Focus on the Clause or Element that will repeat and click the Edit button.
  3. In the top menu, click on the Repeat tab.
  4. Click the “Create Repeat” button, choose Repeat from the recently created ones, or use our Suggestions.
  5. If you choose to click on Create Repeat, select the Repeat Type, (according to number in a Text Input)
  6. Choose the Template Name
  7. Choose the System Name of the Text Input that will control this Repeat

Now, depending on what number is entered in the selected Text Input, that number of Repeats will occur.
Note that it is possible to create a repeating Clause within another repeating Clause, but only once. It is not possible to add another repeat and have three layers of repeating Clauses.

Common Mistake: Circular Logic

If the trigger to repeat a Clause is a Text Input within that Clause, a Circular Logic is formed, and the Repeat will not operate correctly. This principle applies both to Repeats and Conditions.
