  1. POP-UP Notification

    In addition to E-mail notifications I would like to suggest a pop-up notification using desktop apps letting the users know that they have tasks pending.
    E-Mails seem to get lost and don't continually prompt a user to complete their task. Or users might not have access to E-Mail. This should be on option people can mute or turn off.

  2. link annotations with index fields

    It would be great to give the ability to annotations to auto-populate index fields, like the stamps do. Since stamps are permanent and cannot be edited or deleted, the annotations are more user friendly for "live documents" that are being updated.

  3. edit entries

    Hello,
    When the user edit index entries of a document, it would be much more easier if this document were automatically opened in the viewer.

    Indeed, when the user processes invoices that are all similar but different, he can easily have an invoice opened in the viewer that is not the one he is modifying and do not realize it. This is a source of error.

    Thank you.

  4. Bring back the ability for field masks to auto format data.

    As an example if the mask is for a SSN, allow typing of 123456789 without the dashes. This needs to be for storing as well as searching and also point and shoot indexing

  5. change/hide workflow history tabs

    It would be useful to have options to modify/configure the Workflow History, for example to change the order or hide some tabs. Because sometimes the most important history tab for users is the last one and it could be useful to hide technical/system workflow tabs

  6. Link documents manually

    Add a function to link manually two or more documents. We have a lot documents from different areas (Finance, Sales, Production etc.) but for the same product (movie trailer etc.). We want to search for the Trailer and want to see all documents about it.
    All the documents itself are indexed in docuware. Clipping is not a solution, because all the documents are indexed in the System.

  7. Add the ability to use an index field to pre-populate forms in a stamp

    It would be beneficial to be able to add predefined values from an index field when creating a stamp with form fields. Currently, if you set a form field in a stamp to "Predefined Entry" you only receive the basic options like currentusershortname, currentdate, etc.

  8. When using 'Keep Entries' have an option NOT to carry over field which is 'FileName'

    When Multiple documents with similar Index data are stored, an option should be available to have the 'File Name' field come from the next document, not carried over from previous one. Would be even better if a selection can be made which fields are carried over and which are not.

  9. Remember the last used annotation after moving to next/previous document

    In the web client when you choose an annotation such as the "Write text on overlay" it does not remember the last used annotation function after changing pages. The windows client would remember the last function and not require the user to continually click the same function over and over again. This becomes very frustrating when working on a large batch of files. Please see the attached file for a detailed walk through of the problem.

  11. Have Desktop client check status occasionally of Desktop service and auto-restart it if stopped.

    I frequently get tickets from users getting "DocuWare Desktop Service is unavailable". This is almost always caused by the service being stopped for some reason and the user doesn't know how to restart it. Since the Desktop client can't do anything without the service running, it should automatically make sure the service is running every once in awhile.

  12. Edit Forms CSS/Javascript

    Other competitors to DocuWare that offer Forms solution are graphically very customizable. DocuWare's Forms are not as robust. It would be nice to edit the graphical elements of the Forms more in-depth via CSS and/or JavaScript.

  13. Give the ability to drag and drop from the results list into an email

    When I get emails asking for documents I don't want to have to start a new email chain to be able to email someone a document. I would like to be able to pick a document from the results list and drag and drop into an existing email chain.

  14. Stamp locations

    My idea would be to have the option with Tasklist to be able to set a specific location on a document for the a stamp to be placed automatically. Individual stamp configuration would be idea. Mobile clients don't seem to be able to get the stamp in the same spot as the web client.

  15. Printing database information from webclient

    The administration allow to define a header to be printed with database information. But this only works with Windows Client. In 6.5 only webviewer is available and working with document from URL or Webservice or other cause to display them always in Web Client. It is urgent that this functionnality become available in web environment.

    Thank you for your idea. We are planning to implement “Multi Column Select Lists” with a filtering option for Forms with version 7.6, the next release of DocuWare.

    Please let us know if you any more specific wishes or ideas regarding this feature. Thank you.

  17. Store Automatically Currently ignores the settings in the selected store dialog. It should still default values in fields etc.

    Personally I think this is a bug. Currently Store Dialog settings like preloaded default values are ignored. If you select multiple documents in a tray and use the Store Automatically the settings of the store dialog are not processed. This causes huge issues if a status field for instance was preloaded to kick off a particular workflow. The user is allowed to do it but the documents get stored without the necessary default index values and the user has no idea the fields were not filled in as they are if they store one at a time with the store…

  18. 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.)?

  19. add keyboard short to confirm task

    I'm surprised that you can't confirm a task without using the mouse. Customers confirm a lot invoices everyday and don't wanna use the mouse every time.

  20. 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
