Is there a "current user" or "last opened by" property?

I would like to record the name of the current user onto a drawing when it is opened. The purpose of this is to provide traceability to who last opened and printed a drawing.

 

I thought there should be a Solidworks variable for this, but I am unable to find a good answer. I've also looked into macros, but I am unable to find anything that runs automatically when a drawing is opened. Is there a good workaround for this?
