Just thinking about all the documents I need to write for work. Half the time they’re fill-in-the-form type documents with an informal workflow tack onto it. Fill in the tables or pre-made gaps in this wiki page, mark it as draft (usually by typing “Draft” somewhere), post a link to it on Slack so that others can review it, wait for feedback or approvals to trickle in in the form of Slack messages or inline comments. It’s all so… manual. 😫

I know that software houses have tried to build meta-tools to make these sort of template-plus-workflows documents easily convertible to apps. I think Microsoft was the latest one to do this. I wonder why they never caught on. 🤔
