Send a Form Letter from a Service

Services often use Form Letters for communication.  Whether the Service is created to handle an external issue or process, or whether it is meant to handle an internal process, Form Letters can speed up and streamline the flow of work among all parties.  IQ offers a robust module to create and update Form Letters.  For more information, see the Library module in this Help File.
