|Answer / Solution|
Setting Up Optional Template Text
OTT fields are recommended to solve two scenarios:
Modifying Existing Templates
Billing & Pay Implications
When billing and pay computations are performed and template text is defined to be excluded with the billing and/or pay model, the platform finds the appropriate character count by subtracting the characters in the template from those in the finished document.
After text has been marked as optional, it will no longer be counted as part of the template text character count if it is removed during the production process.
In addition, only "optional template text" can be "protected" from billing or pay. This only applies if the billing and/or pay model specifies to exclude template text, and it only applies to optional text that is not deleted during production. For example, in some scenarios, an MTSO might determine that they are eligible to bill their customer for certain template text but not required to pay their MTs for such text. In this case, and when excluding (subtracting) template text from the billing metrics of the final document, the MTSO would want to reduce the size of the template by the volume of optional text (thereby increasing the overall billing text count to the allowable amount.) On the other hand, when computing pay, the MTSO would setup the model to count as part of the template text (increasing the size of the template count and decreasing the payable characters).
