FIll out DocuWare Forms Fields with Query String
It would be great if you could have a user open a DocuWare form and have fields automatically filed out based on the query string of the URL. This would allow for a system to generate extra info on the DocuWare forms link to use on the form and not have to worry about the user typing that info in.
Ideally if you added an argument to the query string that matched a field name on the form it would take the value passed in the url. This seems to be common among other forms products and can be very handy.
The use case we ran into was for a customer who wanted to pass a GUID or User ID with a link to a DocuWare form from their system and once the user completed the anonymous form it could call a web service that would then notify the original system that a form had been submitted for that specific GUID/User ID. This would alleviate the user needing to enter the proper information that would link back to the other system as well as prevent any data entry errors on the users part.

Yes. Needed if you're going to get serious with putting DW Forms to work.
