Currently, there appears to be no ready-to-use mechanism that easily extracts field data from layers into word documents. For example, my company uses a web app that I built to locate/track project locations that pop-up all across the US and Canada. Every time a new project/bid comes through, the PM's create a new point on the map and fill the fields accordingly. They also have a bid document they have to fill out with the same information they've already entered into those fields. So, to avoid duplicative work, I am looking for a way to auto-populate a word template with field values based on a selected point. Similar to the way the "mail-merge" tool in Microsoft Word works with Excel spreadsheets. I would like to be able to create my own Word doc template so formatting can stay consistent with our branding, then upload or connect that to the web app, and automatically fill the necessary fields. If not a widget, then a configurable setting in the pop-up that links/auto-populates online word docs might be a possibility?
