You can select one or more additional export options:
After confirmation of the Export DOCX Options dialog, select an output folder storing the exported DOCX file.
Note: In the WebApp, the exported DOCX file is saved in the browser download folder.
You can create a MS Word DOCX or DOTX template defining your custom title page, document order, header and footer, table of contents, history of changes or paragraph styles.
For example, download the default DOCX template used by the application:
The DOCX/DOTX template must contain one or more ReqView content controls, which are MS Word plain text content controls with a special text, which are replaced by exported project data.
You can insert a ReqView content control as follows:
Click on Plain Text Content Control on the Developer tab and type in a content control text:
ReqView.id— export the project identifier
ReqView.user.name— export the name of the current ReqView user
ReqView.user.email— export the email of the current ReqView user
ReqView.user.company— export the company of the current ReqView user
ReqView.date— export the current date, e.g. “2020-02-19”
ReqView.dateTime— export the current date, e.g. “2020-02-19 16:00”
ReqView.document— export data from the current document
ReqView.document.id— export the current document identifier
ReqView.document.name— export the name of the current document
ReqView.document[ID]— export data from the document with the given identifier, for instance

Optionally, set the content control title to “ReqView” by clicking on Properties on the Developer Tab.
All ReqView documents that you refer to by
ReqView.document[ID] will be exported using the selected Book, Table or Custom layout.
You can insert a ReqView content control into a page header or footer. For instance, output the name of the exported ReqView document on page headers by opening the DOCX template, double clicking on the page header and insert
ReqView.document.name content control as described in the previous section.
