  1. Select multiple Workflow steps to move them around in order to insert a new step

    In Workflow Designer, if I need to add a step near the top of a workflow, I find I have to move each step below it down, one at a time in order for it to fit right.

    It would be great to click and select multiple steps and move them together.

  2. Ability to disable a step in the Workflow Designer to bypass without having to delete it.

    While working in Workflow Designer, I would like to be able to disable or hide the email notifications, while I test the main parts of the workflow.

    Add a way to keep a step in a workflow connected to the workflow, but have it be ignored so the rest of the workflow can be tested.

  3. Extract Specific pages from a document then send as email/or store as new documents

    We have a PDF document that contains multiple pages that is scanned as a whole to DocuWare, from this Document, The requirement is that we send only Page 3 to the Customer, Send Pages 2-end of document to Vendor, and Page 1 stored back in DocuWare as a separate document.

    It would be great if we could have PDF manipulation tools in Workflow that would allow us to do us, without having to develop c# tools for this purpose.

  4. Special characters in fields of a task in Workflow Manager

    Sometimes you want write a field name with parenthesis or comma for example, and Docuware doesn't allow it. Another issue is if you want write the field with the same name in other decision, WFM doesn't allow it, then the name must have a final blank space to repeat the name.

  5. Allow complex conditions for trigger a Worfklow or in a "Wait for event" of WFM

    It's great to be able to generate Workflow triggers and "Wait for event" based on conditions that contain a combination of AND and OR such as we can use for example in notifications, autoindexs or tasklists for example:

    (Status = "NEW" AND (DocType = "01" OR Doctype = "02")) OR (Customerid > 0 and Customerid <5)

  6. Separate the Workflow designer from the activities that are covered by the workflow.

    When there a high number of active instances, the Workflow Designer times out without loading the details in the bottom of the screen and we cannot access the workflow itself.

  7. Update all triggers to use a condition for DOES NOT CONTAIN

    In the Trigger conditions for Workflow Manager, Autoindex, Transfer etc, there should be a way to use a DOES NOT CONTAIN statement to allow for increased flexibility when setting up triggers

  8. face-to-face signature with DocuSign

    In validateID you have the face-to-face signature integrated on the tablet, but we need the "embedded signing" method to be programmed in the DocuSign API for face-to-face signature, now it only allows remote signatures.

  9. Allow a standard attachment to add to a workflow

    I want to use a public form for a lead to register and download an e-book. I want to do that by asking a lead to fill in a form after which I send the e-book via e-mail (after which I send the lead to an ccountmanager to follow-up. It would be great if I had the possibility of attaching an attachment of choice to a workflow generated e-mail.

  10. Stamp the document as an automatic activity

    This would be awesome. Many workflows and approval processes are automated and auto-approved if for example 1+1 = 2. However theres no way to see any indicator of this process on the document itself. If we could place a stamp on the document as an activity (not user task), this would be very helpful.

  11. On Change Event

    I suggest adding an "on change" event to dialogs in the workflow designer.

    We have a workflow where users need to match credit card statement line items to invoices/receipts. When the user selects an invoice vendor and invoice number, I want to show more detail about the invoice in real time so the user can be sure they selected the correct one.

    For example, the user selects vendor "Microsoft" from the first input box, and they select invoice number "1234" from the second input box (which has been filtered based on the selection of "Microsoft" above). When that second input…

  13. ValidateID Signature - Collect Reason for Signature Rejection

    Currently although the reason for refusal is requested when not signing a document, then this value is not available for use anywhere. ValidateID does have this option available (Signers.RejectionReason from "Operation Get Document Information"). It would be very useful to implement the option to collect this information as otherwise you have to go and ask the person who has refused to sign the document to find out the reason for the rejection.

    (NOTE: Related to Workflow Designer, WebService, ValidateID Integration on DocuWare)

  14. Function to lock a fillable PDF in the workflow to prevent further modification

    The overall process surrounding the question is a PO Form, which I’ve created in DocuWare. That form triggers an Approval workflow. In the workflow I also add line totals, overall total and the name of the final approver onto the fillable PDF document. Once the document is approved, the workflow sends the PO to the supplier. The problem is that at this moment the order is still fillable… I need that document to be a non-fillable PDF… Problem is that I can’t create the non-fillable PDF with the form as I then can’t add the line totals etc. to the…

  15. Assign to Role and Variable

    Allow the ability to assign to a pre defined role and also to a variable.

    Within the workflow I have a role variable which is defined by the path of the workflow.

    I would like to assign the task to the ROLE and VARIABLE for approval but can only do one or the other.

  16. Automatic csv export for index in workflow manager

    In the standard DocuWare function, there is a manual csv export on web client as the current method of csv export.

    Many customers want to link CSV data to the ERP system, so they want to do this automatically instead of manually. In order to do it automatically, it is necessary to access the web service built on each customer by using the web service of workflow manager. (Programming required)

    I would like to add an activity for csv export to the workflow manager to easily achieve this.

  17. stamps

    Add option to display first and last name to stamp. Some of our usernames are generic for example Warehouseclerk01. Yet the First and last Name are assigned to a person Jon Doe. This would be nice to show on the stamp instead of user name.

  18. Web Service Integration Improvements

    DocuWare doesnt have the same abilities as SoapUI to process data from web services. See below

    Docuware can’t process sub child XML elements and self-closing tag as a parameter.

    SoupUI can process all standard data types while Docuware can accept Integer and Decimal but seems to inconsistently be able to access some string parameters

    Some context objects in SoapUI aren't able to be interacted with in DocuWare because the data types aren't standard (string, decimal etc).

  20. (Workflow designer) Wants to get the numeric column of a table field as an entry in Data assignment.

    We want to assign the table field index data to a global variable. Currently we can get the text type of the Table field as expected, but the number type does not appear as a candidate for entry.

    We have to get the number type value of Table field as well.
