We are now into September - are there any updates about the specific timetable to make the patch available for Word 2016? To know the specific date of the release would be very helpful.

Thanks for your note to us Gillian. Having just had to go through producing two documents by going back to Word 2011, this is not a good workaround. There are better formatting options for figures in 2016, and these get moved around and the whole document gets restructured. This is really not a good workaround for now.
Please release the beta patch as soon as possible so we can begin testing it (even if it crashes occasionally its better than having to go back to 2011 for every doc to format the bibliography.)

My company is in a holding-pattern regarding deploying Office 2016 to our 250+ Macs. Our IT effort to migrate everyone from a static site licensing model to Office 365 has been stopped until we can fully support Word 2016 & CWYW. Hear that sound? Its the sound of our project screeching to a halt.
I'd really like to offer myself to beta testing the forthcoming EndNote X7 Word 2016 CWYW plug-in.
I signed-up for the Thomson EndNote beta test program.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. We haven't hosted a Beta program since the launch of X7 in 2013 and I imagine this form is from that program. We unitentionally left it active.
However, we are planning a Beta program form the new CWYW for Word. Would you mind contacting me directly at ariana.townsend[at]thomsonreuters.com?
In the meantime, I will sort out thee existing form. I apologize for not doing so sooner.

I'm am about to undertake a substantial research project and have a large amount of reference on the system which are now useless, unless an update is released asap.
Do we have any updates? Even Beta Updates would be something.

By stating that you are "planning" a beta trial, does that mean that there isn't one already? In other words, we're not even close to a release date if a beta is still in the "planning" stage.
With all due respect, the lack of transparency and coy references to a "fall release" are somewhat insulting. You are going to gain more ground with your loyal customer base by acknowledging the black eye instead of trying to cover it up with makeup and pretend that it's not there.
BTW, the Windows version of Office 2016 goes public in 9 days. Is there a plan or that? If there is your customers certainly wouldn't know at this rate.
Please be more transparent out of respect for the people paying your salaries.
