Discover how you can use DocShifter for
fully automated report level publishing
Creating reports by merging documents manually?
The process of creating reports requires full time employees, decentralized tools and a lot of manual effort.
Leveraging automation for report creation saves you valuable time and money. It ensures you get high-quality, navigation-rich, consistent reports with the minimum manual work. By reducing manual steps, you also reduce the risks from human errors.
Merge multiple documents into 1 or more PDF reports
Cover pages with logos, graphics, text; table of contents (ToC), optional table of tables (ToT) or table of figures (ToF), consistent headers, footers and pagination across the entire report, watermarks and hyperlinks.
These are some of the things you might need to include in your reports.
Science takes time, all the rest should not
Creating single reports from multiple individual source documents can be an un-necessarily complex and expensive process to manage.
Bringing a new drug to market already takes many years, so why complicate the generation of simpler reports, such as IMPDs, Clinical Study Reports, etc?

Frequently Asked Questions on Automated Report Level Publishing
DocShifter’s automated report level publishing capabilities generate navigation-rich, searchable PDF reports.
For inclusion in regulatory submissions, these reports must comply with the right submission structure. Compiling, publishing and reviewing needs to be done by a publishing tool, like Lorenz Docubridge.
Yes to both questions. DocShifter can automatically create bookmarks in many different ways. DocShifter can create bookmarks from custom heading styles, as well as from Word’s default headings.
For Table of Contents (ToC), you can define whether you would like to create it at Word level, or PDF level. You can set limits, and skip generating a ToC if the page contains less than 5 pages, for example. You can also automatically define rules to automatically create a ToC if the page exceeds 10 pages.
For more questions, please drop us a note.
A clinical study report is an extensive report; including statistical descriptions, presentations and analyses of a clinical study. A CSR usually utilizes tables and figures to present the data.
A CSR provides an overview of how and why the trial was chosen; gives information on the plan; methodology and the conclusion of the study.
A clinical study report’s format and content are defined by ICH. A CSR must contain study objectives, investigational plan, study patients, efficacy and safety evaluations, and overall conclusions.
By ‘fully automated’, we mean that report level publishing doesn’t have to include any manual work. Today; companies use complex publishing tools (typically designed for submission publishing) that require lots of manual configuration to generate reports. And this manual configuration is required for every report.
DocShifter, once configured, will fully automate your report publishing needs. Without any manual intervention, it will merge documents; add ToC, bookmarks, headers and footers; and generate 1 or more PDF outputs.
Yes of course. We thought you were never going to ask.
There are multiple options:
- Hand-held demos with your own content.
- A dedicated environment that you can use to upload files to. Where you can configure your own workflows.
- On-premise trial installations, so you can test quality and performance within your own infrastructure.
Document level publishing is the process of creating bookmarks, hyperlinks and other required PDF elements for the document. The goal of document level publishing is to make navigation easier; and therefore simplifying the review process.
