I'll apologise in advance for what is probably a simple question but I'm struggling.
I'm putting together a project management site (which will become a template for other projects) and I would like to be able to replace text in certain pages with text from one of the defined lists to add some level of customisation.
I have a list for summary data (for example, the customer name) and I would like to define points in pages where the documents will update with the value from the customer name field when the project manager enters that information in the list. So initially the value in the list may be "enter customer name here" and would change to "customer name" when the project manager is assigned and updates this field.
I've had a search around and have found various posts about using the REST API to pull data from lists but I can't see how to get this working for my situation (another apology here, I have very limited experience with programming of any sort).
Any help much appreciated!
