You might be wondering what are Wildcards?
Wildcards are personalisation tokens / merge tags you can use and add into your document builder when creating a formatted resume template.
When you indicate that you would like to use the first name wildcard, for example, Vincere will look into the record in system, find the first name field, pull the value from and populate it in your formatted resume where you designate automatically.
All you need to do is copy and paste the wildcard into the resume template where you’d like the field to appear in the formatted resume. To view a full list of all the Wildcards, check out this list here
