  1. Force Date fields to System Region

    When storing documents with 'US' culture encoded into the PDF, we have found that the date field will store in US format like MM/DD/YYYY

    This is despite our system being configured in all areas to use Australian date format DD/MM/YYYY

    DocuWare support has advised that this is working as intended, but I cannot see how this makes any logical sense as it promotes incorrect data.

  2. Allow changing real file name during Copy To

    Currently, if I have a document that I might use as a template for a new document and I perform a "Copy To" operation, the base file name will remain the same. This makes it impossible to edit two resulting documents side by side in an editor such as Word or Excel because their base filename is identical.

    Either the file should be opened as the "File Name" index, or the option to change the file name during "Copy To" needs to allow the base file name to be specified.

    Currently, the cumbersome workaround is to download the document, rename…

  3. Make it possible to rename values in keyword fields

    In the Windows client a user could go to the Info box and select a keyword value and rename it very easily. In the Web client a user must delete and recreate a value. This can be very difficult if there are several keyword values associated to the field and they have several characters.

  6. Display ALL of the select list options even if a value is present

    When a value is already present in an index field, popping up the menu of acceptable values only shows an option for what is already in the field! That's pretty much useless. The end used has to delete what is there before he can change it to something else.

  7. Have field filled with substring or concatenation of other field

    Hello,
    It could be nice if we can extract a substring of a field to fill another field. I.E.: Invoice has a date as an index. Have the possibility to create 2 index (year and month) for extracting the year and the month. This two new fields could be use in the Windows Explorer view to group invoice by year and month for example.
    It could be substring or the concactenation of several fields.

  8. Add the ability to use regex expressionsthe print and import template fields are looking for.

    When you define a field in the print and import template to read something on the document, it would be good to choose the type of data that you are looking for, or even better allowing the use of regex expressions. This way you could have a larger search area in case the page shifts or there is small differences in the document layout, but you would be guaranteed to find the data you are looking for. This would be good for indexing and for document identification.

  9. Ability to type in multiple index entries to a keyword field at once

    There should be a way to add multiple entries separated by a delimiter when adding entries to a keyword field. Currently you have to add them one by one hitting the + in between. This is horrible for the user when they have 50 plus entries. There are ways to do this in the background with a comma delimited load file so there should be a way to do this via the Web Client.

  10. More than one field shown in Select Lists

    Enable to have select list with two columns, one for ID and another for description (for example list of partners). It is easier for user to select among description that among 8000 partner IDs.

  11. I suggest that you allow rearranging index fields on the "edit index field" screen.

    Currently, the list of index fields shown on the "edit index field" screen are in order of when they were created. It would be great to allow rearranging of the list so they are in a more user friendly order, and not just "this is how I added them into Docuware" order.

  12. Allow us to create dynamic store dialogues

    I think it would be great if you could allow us to create dynamic store dialogues which could alter their layout depending on the document type chosen (or any other pre defined field for that matter).

    For example, lets define a "key" field of a file cabinet store dialogue and lets say its the "document type" and we also give this a predefined select list. Then we may have many other fields of this cabinet but not all of these other fields may relate to each of the possible document types. It would be very useful and help guide the…

  13. 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.

  14. Provide different sort settings for keyword fields

    It seems to be the case, that if an MSSQL Database (DocuWare Cloud) is used, keyword field entries are automatically sorted in an alphabetical order after applying changes to them.
    This is not the case for MySQL Databases. Sometimes the order/sorting of the entered values are important for the customer or special use cases. It would be very nice to have possibilites to select how or if the entered values should be sort/ordered.

  15. Check for for unique while entering value

    It's frustrating if you populate the store dialog with all the data and after you hit store, you get the notification that the invoice is already stored.

    It would save a lot of time if I am notified already while entering e.g. the invoice number that there is already an invoice with this number.

  16. Have an Import Configuration that can identify multiple document types

    Currently you can create a printer configuration for different document types and when you print a document it will try and identify with one of the printer configurations. I suggest doing the same thing with the import configurations, or be able to create an import configuration that can then allow for multiple document type to be identified.

    Ex. I create an Import Configuration for bank statements. When it comes to the Identify tab you are then able to create multiple document types with separate importable documents to create templates from. So when you imported bank statements from different backs it…

  18. Allow an option to turn off edit multiple index entries

    Many of our clients want to restrict users' ability to specifically edit multiple index entries, while still allowing them to edit a single index entry. The reason being is that they don't want them to select multiple documents and accidentally either delete a field or change it to something incorrect. It's fine if they had the ability to edit index entries for a single document, but currently you either have the option to edit index entries or you don't. You can't break it down to a singular vs. multiple level. I think this would be a useful future if you…

  19. Copy the value of a field, from result list or index info dialog

    An index value stored first in DW, need to set in a third party application. When the value is a long reference, the best to prevent typing error is to copy the value from DW to third party.

    it can be available from Search result , copying the text, (in version 6.1 it was possible, no more in newer version) or from display info index particularlywhen index modification is not allowed by administrator on the field (tested and not possible from version 6.7 and above )
