Setting up drawing format

I think there are basic questions but hard to find in help. The basic drawing format that comes with Solidworks already has a few properties linked. I need to set up the title block better but am having a hard time finding the properties I need.


Assume one part in the drawing.


I'd like the model drive the different pieces of information boxed in red below:


Units - In the lower RH corner of the Solidworks viewport there is a units setting.

Material - from the material selected in the part feature tree of the part in the drawing.

Name - The name of the user that drew the part.

Date - Date of last save.

Rev - Revision (from PDM) of the part. 



How does one go about getting these to autopopulate in the drawing?
