I am trying to do something similar to this template

So it appears to be a grouped shapes with data fields inserted into the sub shapes, where you can click on the group and assign the data values

I know to assign data to a shape but can't work out how to do it with a group. I either get sub groups with their own data sets which can't be accessed by clicking the group or a data set for the group where I can place the field in the individual sub shape

Any enlightenment would be appreciated

you can access properties of other shapes (which could be the group from a subshape) like this:
This works in "Insert > Field > Custom Formula" and in the shapesheet.
