Inside MS Office word we have the Status property as follow:-
and inside a SharePoint online site collection i added the built-in Status site column inside a document library:-
now when i upload a document the Status will be mapped between the MS office word and SharePoint. For example if a document have status = "Not Started" and i upload the document then the Status inside SharePoint will also be "Not Started" (as shown in the above 2 pictures)... but the issue i am facing is that the Status inside MS Office word will be a free text while inside SharePoint it will be a drop-down, so the status inside MS office word can contain a value not inside the drop-down choices as in the "Not Started" case.. so how i can fix this issue? either by modifying the MS office word property or the SharePoint site column?
