Frequently Asked Questions

Can I personalize my fax?

Fax Merge allows you to send personalized fax messages to a broadcast list.

Sending a fax merge is similar to starting a fax broadcast with a few exceptions: 

  • The document to be faxed must be in Microsoft Word 97-2003 *.doc or *.docx format.
    • This format can be saved from Microsoft Word by selecting it from the 'Save as type' drop-down box in the 'Save As' dialog box.
    • For Google Docs, go to File > Download as > Microsoft Word (.docx).
  • The fax broadcast list must contain fax merge data. For each merge field you use in your document, there must be a column in the spreadsheet with the same header.
  • You will need to insert merge fields into your document through a merge tag.

    For example, for a field called "FirstName", you will need to have <mf:FirstName> as a merge tag.

Can I send my broadcast online?

Yes, you can. Sending fax with your Monopond does not require any special software or hardware. Simply log in to your Monopond, upload your document, select a broadcast recipient list, and start the fax broadcast.
