Very Useful Wizards and Templates....

Many moons ago, I worked for a well known software company based in Redmond, WA where I was a software designer, creating feature specifications for their flagship office productivity suite.

At one point during my days at the aforementioned software company, I was responsible for coming up with a list of new "Wizards and Templates" that would enable users to easily create various kinds of documents. I recently stumbled upon my brainstorming list of wizards and templates that I'd generated, just to get the ball rolling.

Wouldn't it be cool if, when you started up your favorite office productivity suite, you had the ability to start creating the following with just a click of the mouse?

  • Marriage Certificates
  • Parking Tickets
  • Moving Violation Tickets
  • Search Warrants
  • Jury Duty Notices
  • Divorce Decrees
  • Green Cards
  • Drivers Licenses
  • Passports
  • Liquor Licenses
  • Police Credentials
  • Ivy League Diplomas
  • Dollar Bills
And, lastly, these two would be available in the US versions only:
  • Gun Dealer License
  • Permit to Carry a Concealed Weapon

I seem to recall that, in the end, the patent application would have taken too long, so we settled for photo albums and the like, instead.

What wizards and templates do *you* think would be fun for your office productivity suite?

* hot date invitation
* thank you for last night
* the test came back positive
* the other test came back positive
* request help/vent to friends
* cheating notification, response
* argument for/against marriage
* breakup notification, response
* press release
* restraining order

this is convenient - you could just keep the wizard open for a few months (days/years).

now I think I about it, I just need a half-dozen Life Wizards running at all times.
* fun
* irritations (bills etc.)
* life goals
* drinking and debauchery (which of course ties into above)
