Basically I want to control all publishing related items via 'info'. I put in the clients lot, street name, Suburb...

The PDF Name should be as follows
#lot, #streetname, #suburb, #clientnames - Contract Plans
Resulting in
111, Jeorge Street, Westy Bank, Ben and Ella - Contract Plans.pdf

The publishing folder should be
C:\#year\#lot #streetname, #suburb, #clientnames\Plans
Resulting in
C:\2017\111, Jeorge Street, Westy Bank, Ben and Ella\Plans

Now it's a set and forget on the template.
Extending on this wish, it would probably be useful to use Autotext in View Names, Layout Names, and Publisher Item Names (there are some Autotexts in Publisher Item Names, but there could be more).
