  1. Better error messages

    They don’t always stand out on the screen and seldom offer any helpful hints as to what the error is.

  2. Graphics are outdated

    Very boxy and basic looking. Tool bars and tabs would be easier to use.

  3. Open Linked Documents in new viewer by defualt

    Need the ability to have linked documents open in a new viewer by default. I know it is possible to right click and open the linked document in a new viewer but this is inefficient.

  4. Allow users to edit after checking out/checking in a document

    Allow users to edit after checking out/checking in a document. Version control should be able to be manual and automatic not limited

  6. Visibility of the workflow document when openning the linked documents

    The preview of the document selected from workflow should be remains open when openning the linked documents. This is the functionality of Docuware 6.1. Now in the Docuuware 6.7 this functionality has been removed. Currently the preview of the document selected from Tasks is closed when you look into linked documents.

  7. Fuzzy Searching Capability

    Potential customers have often inquired about fuzzy search support where words that aren't completely spelled correctly are still found similar to functionality of popular search engines. This is a current feature in some competitive document management offerings.

  8. Utilize one of the Intelligent Index fields to name the documents in the tray

    Many documents land in the tray to be indexed but sorting through them to find a specific document would be simplified if one of the Intelligent Indexing fields was displayed as the doc name.

  9. Allow Document Name field be populated even if the field is not visible

    Currently Index field which is set as DocumentName is populated with the filename being stored ONLY the field is visible in the store dialog,
    This should be happening even if the field is not visible. There is really no need for the user to see the field, but it still needs to be populating.

  11. Left Clicking or highlighting a value in the search dialog allows you to select and can copy the value.

    From the file cabinet, left click on any of the value allows you to select that value (highlight) and copy so that you can paste it elsewhere, like back into a search dialog.

  12. Right Click on a value to search for all related documents based on this value

    From the file cabinet, right click on any of the values and have ability to search for all related documents based on this value in this category. For example if Status = Indexed and I wanted to quickly search for all documents with this same value even though my search dialog had be set to another search type, then i can initiate a new search dialog from the right click and a drop down option.

  15. Add ability in DocuWare Tasks and WorkFlow to create a task without having a document already created.

    Sometimes users need to be assigned a task to do a specific function such as create documents. Currently, a user would need to create a document to request a new task to create a new document. Once the task has been submitted and workflow started the original "request" document is not needed or useful.

    Adding the ability to Create a task that includes data fields that are customizable by administrators and for specific users to see would solve many issues. I envision that there would be a button under tasks that would say Create a task and based on the…

    You can accomplish this currently by creating a database entry from a document tray. Just unselect all documents and the store button will be a “Create database entry” button. Then enter index entries that would trigger a workflow. The workflow will just start like with a document and you have the possibility to add a document at any later time.

  16. Print/Download without annotations

    When you print or download a document it should be possible to only give the user one option with annotations. For example: Users should be only allowed to download/print documents WITH annotations so they can't even see the option to print/download without annotations.

  17. Reset on Store Dialog keeps previous index entries ... Add a clear all option

    Reset in DW6 resets changes made to preindexed index entries (this is a good feature) -- Reset in DW5 removed all of the data in the index fields. Suggest adding the option to do the same in DW6 ... such as adding a clear entries button.

  18. Ability to change the query of a list

    I have some lists (created by using "Save this search as list" from a result list) which I need to change from time to time, e.g. each half year.
    The queries behind this lists are a bit complex and it is not failure save to create them new - I don't reminder them in detail.
    Much better would be if I could get back to the search dialog, then I can change there what I want, and create a new list.
    (Btw: This was an easy an convenient way in Content Folder)

  19. Ability to rename a list

    I have a lot of lists (created by using "Save this search as list" from a result list) and need to rename some lists now.
    Deletion and new creation is not a working way.

  20. Code documents that have already been checked out in a different color.

    Code documents that have already been checked out in a different color. This uses a visual to save a step/click on every document.
