Select Read option
In this part we need to select which information you want to show/use inside your Document Templates, remember to confirm Selection for each Level, for this demo we are using “Transaction ID“. “Posting Date for a Business Transaction” and “Transaction Description”
Then you can define some Default values, for this demo you need to click in Next
