Adding metadata into Word document for printing purpose

In this post I am going to share a feature that how can we include metadata values into a document for printing purposes.

Suppose we have a content type called "Procedure Document" with following columns:

1. Document Category
2. Reviewer
3. Review Date

you can have multiple columns but above columns are just for testing purpose to show you the idea.

Once you have uploaded a document and supplied the metadata as shown below:

Now edit the document and follow below steps to add metadata into that document:

1. Go to Insert tab
2. Click on "Quick Part" > Document Property
3. Choose fields that you want to include in the document

Hope this helps.
