  1. Field list in Field behaviors should take the field name and not label

    Currently the field list when using field behaviors are using labels. This gets confusing when you have multiple addresses or occurrences of a particular field.

    If the field label was used instead, admins can make them unique.

    • Have the ability to use calculations within Forms

      If filling out expense or check requests or anything with money or numerical value, would be great to use calculations to total the fields.

      • Allow "regular" standard select lists in Forms rather than always doing the filtering thing.

        When filling out a form, it is now possible to type arbitrary text into select list entry fields. This filtering behavior is not commonly found on webpages and has caused some consistent confusion and frustration for our customers and their clients when forms won't submit.

        Not all users of these forms are super savvy, especially for public forms, where users are not familiar with the concept of filtering. They type something in, and say "i'm done with that one" and move on.

        Regular drop down lists that you click a choice and that's it should be allowed as an option.…

        • Restore "*Required" Field Errors Back To Webforms

          Our DocuWare Cloud instance was recently upgraded to v.7. Since the upgrade, our webforms no longer display errors above the Submit button when *Required fields are incomplete.

          In v.7, the descriptive language regarding fields that are incomplete (e.g. "errors") do not appear on webforms. Rather, the "Submit" button remains greyed out and cannot be clicked until the errors are corrected.

          Sorry to say, without the helpful errors actually displaying on screen, our users cannot figure out why the Submit button won't light up. One of our webforms is very long and contains many *Required fields. The users simply cannot intuit…

          • Ability to store a Form in Document Tray or File Cabinet

            Currently you can only store a Form directly into a File Cabinet with a store dialog. Need ability to store into a Document Tray as well. When storing with Import, Printer or email you have option to store document into Document Tray or File Cabinet

            • Show where missing required field is on the form, not just at the bottom, above the Submit button

              You show users that fields are required above the Submit button, but for long forms, it is often difficult for users to find that ONE field that is still required but missing.

              Can we have an option to have the field area around the required field be highlighted (red border, yellow background, etc.)?

                  • Add DW Control font to Merge Form Designer

                    Somewhat related to Idea #: 18813022 but maybe a quicker implementation due to using current functionality.

                    Allow the use of the DW Control font that would insert the codes needed based on options available when the font was chosen.

                    So all the commands listed at this link about DW Control:

                    (http://help.docuware.com/en/#b57696t59700n76554)

                    The ones that make sense could be available for use in order to quickly scan and index any printed out forms that were completed by hand later.

                    Typically you'd have to create an import config for auto indexing of scanned documents. This would enable users to bypass…

                    • Retain original file format in merge forms

                      For example if you use a word doc as the document to accept merge data into then store as a word doc and not convert to a pdf. Thereby enabling edit capability going forward.

                      • Allow dynamic selection of document to merge with in a merge form configuration.

                        Perhaps documents selectable from a cabinet (rather than selected from an explorer browse window) dedicated as these type of templates.

                        • Be able to use predefined fields such as dates in a DW Form

                          It would be great to be able to have a date field and just have it prepopulated with the current date. Also, would be great to be able to use currentuserlongname as a prepopulated item in a form field

                          • I suggest you use the user's local setting to set up the date on forms.

                            The UK has a date format of day/month/year and given I click on a calendar to select the date often the error is not seen until the 04/06 2017 or was that the 06/04/2017?

                            • Capture data from barcode in to Forms

                              If we can capture data from a barcode directly into a web form using a mobile device, we can eliminate the human error at the time of capture of index data and this will make the job much faster in a production line, much like an import job from a pc that can read and capture the information contained in the barcode, see attached image for a sample of a capture from a mobile device.

                              • Fix the web form bug, everying appears in one line upon conversion to PDF, prior to the upgrade all was great.

                                DocuWare Web Forms should be reverted back to how it was prior to the recent upgrade. All contents from a multiple line field appear in one long string of text upon conversion to PDF, prior to the upgrade all was great so please bring the ability to retain form design upon conversion to PDF back.

                                • Custom URL for Forms

                                  Currently getting to the Forms is not very convinient as a User.
                                  I would like to have the option to create custom URLs, and not just the default http://FQDN/Docuware/Platform/WebClient/Forms/FORMNAME?orgID=ORGID link. Maybe a little Editbox in the Forms Overview right under the URL field to type a custom URL which redirects to the form so the Users can go with http://FQDN/FORMNAME for example.

                                  • I suggest that the auto increment value in Forms, increase when the form is submit, not before.

                                    Because if I clouse the form and I open again, I lose my sequence number.

                                        • Form validation options

                                          As far as I know there is no way to validate field values within the form as the user fills out each field.

                                          If you map a FC field to a form field, shouldn't it enforce the same validations that are required on the FC field and provide immediate feedback to the person filling out the form?
