How easy is it to Switch from HotDocs?

This will depend on how many templates you have and how complex your templates are. For basic and moderate complexity documents, XpressDox includes a conversion utility as standard. However, if you have complex templates, some editing will be required after the conversion. For complex templates, we recommend you contract with one of our certified installation partners to convert your templates.

Preparing for the Switch from HotDocs

Plan to Convert Yourself?

If you plan on doing the template conversion yourself, the first step is to download a free 30-day trial copy of XpressDox Author for MS Word. The trial has full functionality, and ships with the HotDocs conversion utility as standard. However, before you begin converting templates we recommend you watch the XpressDox Tutorial videos and familiarize yourself with some of the XpressDox commands.

Similar Commands to HotDocs

While many of the XpressDox commands are similar to those in HotDocs, XpressDox has a slightly different approach to developing templates. For straightforward templates, XpressDox commands may be inserted directly into the document, simplifying the coding process. You also don’t need to create a CMP file, although some of our advanced users still prefer to do that. Learning XpressDox will take a little effort on your part, but you’ll find that you will soon get the hang of it!
