    Great explanation but such a tedious, time consuming process. Do the developers at Microsoft not think that it would be helpful were there a more streamlined and quicker way of inserting a path at the bottom of a document?

    Hi there,
    Just wandering if you could please tell me if we can add a not-seen-on-printout field for when the document should next be reviewed for updating? For example, email templates saved in a word document could have Next Review and Revision: 05.07.17. Once this revision had been done, the date could be replaced by a new one, one year in advance.

    Thank you in advance,
    Kirsten
