Better Documentation Through Computed Text

When documenting a database using the About or Using document, you may often
refer to one or more persons that are recipients of mail messages in a workflow

If those persons are referenced in a dB Config or Profile document, and then
referenced by your formulas, you can also reference them in your documentation
programmatically so as to always keep it current.

Let's say that Barney Fife is the value in the ProfileApprovers field on your
profile document. Instead of typing Barney's name in your documentation,
insert Computed Text with the formula @GetProfileField("Profile Doc Name" ;

This way, if the ProfileApprovers field ever contains another person's name,
your documentation is automatically updated.
