At the SNUG 2016 Conference someone asked about adding tick boxes to Word Letter Templates.
It is possible to add check boxes. These are square boxes that when you click on them you get a cross thorough the box and it can do the same job. You can also set up a drop down in the template that allows you to pick from a list that you have set up.
Both of the above are in the Legacy Forms part of Word.
This short course shows you how to get them into your template and how to use them. You will need your sound turned on.
