Hi,

 

I'm looking for opinions on how you direct users to assign content types and apply metadata when creating new Word/Excel documents.  Until a couple of months ago, you could select content types when creating new documents in Office, but that seems to have been deprecated.  Below is a screenshot of what it used to look like.  

 

 

This functionality is very important as I have users who mainly work in synced folders.
