I'm developing a template for my team's daily production needs, and every product must have certain consistent marginalia on it, such as date, product ID, title, subtitle, etc. Currently, this information is manually entered into an InDesign or Illustrator template, and the template is different depending on the product type. Ideally, I'd like to have a series of prompts guide the user (not Adobe proficient) through selecting/entering their marginalia and display the appropriate template with all the text populated and ready for the content.
I have no idea what functionality to leverage to do this or if this is even possible. We're using CS6. Can someone point me in the right direction?
