Increase Word Document Information (Approval table and cover)

We are using "Process App" to launch process validation workflows.
We can see the approval status in the "Work History" of each blueprint (Click on "Select a view or action for this process" > "View Work History")
We would like to include in our Word document (Click on "Select a view or action for this process" > "Export to word")), an “approval table” with the information of who has approved the document and when. We would like to have it at the end of the document and to have the following information (on a table would be perfect): last editor name and business unit, date of workflow launched (last date of edition), approver name and business unit and date of approval. (We're including the “Business Unit" of each user in the “Account Settings” tab).
We want also to add a cover to the Word Document, with our Company details.

    Thanks for the request, Daniel! We love the idea of adding the approval table to the Word export and we will consider adding that in some future release. We'll also put some thought into how to make the cover page customizable in order to make that feature useful for all of our customers.
