Like building blocks but...2020

I've just finished making a huge template for work using building blocks, but there has to be a better way!

So my document is a complex one but there's a lot of logic. If A display B text and give options for C or D. If E display F text etc.

I've got round this by nesting building blocks in word, so block B will contain another autotext option containing C or D. It works but:
- editing individual entries is fiddly.
- you can't see a map of the whole document.
- you need to publish a new template each time.

IMO there must be a better, more advanced way to do this. Preferably with a separate backend that can be independently modified and one that could scale up to give a lot more options. But preferably without having to install new software (we have office 365)

Good developers of mefi, how would you do it?
