Multi Column Select List - Auto-Populate Data Once a Feld Is Selected
Is this possible......
Multi-Column select lists.......
If a user selects an entry in a field using a multi column select list, it auto populates the data in the other fields that are configured in that store dialog using the multi-column select list.
I think this could be a very powerful feature that would eliminate a lot of processing time. If configured and programmed correctly, using a database connection select list, it could enhance DocuWare considerably.
Thank you for your idea. We added it to our collection of ideas and features and will further investigate it. We currently cannot say exactly when this idea will be implemented. As soon as we have more information we will update its status.

I just had a meeting with a client who asked if this was possible and I said, "No...you have to click on the arrow and pick the provided option." Clients seem to expect this feature to be working, and I agree, this feature would eliminate a lot of processing time.

Not only would this be a powerful feature, it's almost universally expected these days.

Put a check box in the configuration of the fields in a file cabinet to enable or disable this field being filled in when using the 'Complete Indexing' option in the store dialog. (Similar to the "Select list filtered by... check box). This would allow some fields to be left empty so that the user would not have to change the data brought back by the "Complete Indexing' option.
For Example, An Invoice may have the same PO Number as a previously entered Invoice, but not the same amount, due date, etc.
