We have a problem with Word 2016 and the 'Document Information Panel / Document Properties' when we are storing the document within SharePoint Online and have a column which is a Multi value Choice Field (Checkboxes).

 

Within SharePoint you will see the selected value, but within Word these values are always empty. This is very confusing for users and causes a lot of issues!

Is this a known issue and what's the quickest way to report this bug and make sure it will be fixed asap.

This issue is there since at least december 2016, maybe even longer.
