  2. Docuware forms should have a table field that indexes a table index field

    In docuware 7.1 there is a new index field type of table. This is great except it isn't all that useful without being able to automatically enter data into the table. Our purchase order requests for example have to index a quantity, price, description, and 2 accounting codes for each line item. So currently, I have a spreadsheet that I print into docuware with a print configuration and it indexes each of those items so it can be used to import into our accounting system. I can't index the table items with the print configuration. According to your documentation page…

  3. Group elements in DocuWare Forms and an "add button" to dynamically "create" fields

    Imagine that Im a technician and require spare parts to fix something... I would need a document with some certain information which would repeat n number of times, i.e. Part Number, Description, Qty... there won't be a fixed number of fields that i have to fill each time I need spare parts.

    The group elements function would allow to wrap PartNumber, Description and Qty to be treated as one, so with the Add button you could add another group of those fields as on requirements

  4. Form filling checks and crosses

    When mapping fields to a merge doc, can we have the option to have ticks, or checks as well as the existing "X" ?

    The reason is that when using a Checkbox field in form design, and then mapping that to a merge form the data changes from a "tick" for yes on the web form, to an "X" which can be interpreted as a "No" on the merge form.

  5. Create forms with a organization template

    like a fusion into "form of fusion" with "traditional forms". For example, I upload the PDF template file and add items on this template to capture information. In this way, the user of a web client looks at a friendly interface.

  6. Merge and Web Form

    We have several forms where part of the data gets merged onto a filled out form that we give to the client, and the rest of the information is lost. I've worked around this by creating a basic word document to hold on to the excess information that is only used internally, however it would be nice if it was possible to use the merge form for the information you want on to a specific document, AND the web form layout that captures ALL the data.

  7. Allow URL parameters in DocuWare Forms

    Since each field in a DocuWare Form has an ID it would be very handy to be able to pass data to that field via a URL parameter.

    If I had a field on a form with the ID of "Location" I'd like to be able to call that form with a specific location value. The form would then load with that field already prefilled with that value. Something like this:
    https://mytenant.docuware.cloud/form/formpage?Location=USA

  8. Date/time for forms

    It would be nice to have a Date/Time form ability instead of simply just Date. This would work great for forms used for meeting scheduling

  9. Allow DocuWare Forms to be submitted to a Document Tray

    Currently, DocuWare Forms do not inherit File Cabinet field masks such as a Social Security Number regex validation. If a DocuWare Form could be submitted to a Document Tray instead of a File Cabinet, then I could use the store dialog to enforce the input and finish up the form. There's plenty of other reasons as well.

  10. Highlight mandatory fields in forms

    Is it possible to have something more visual for mandatory form fields, that draws a users' attention to complete a specific required field, as currently the submit button remains greyed out and you have to hover to find the names of the field that need to be completed.

    For example a red outline (as shown in the attachment, an example from Office 365 Forms), it will be easier for users to complete mandatory fields, by visually drawing their attention to it.

  11. Time picker

    A basic option that is missing on the web forms designer is a time picker. The date one works great...now if we just had a time option that pulled up a clock on the mobile device or browser to easily and consistently set the time that would be great.

  12. Ability to assign more than one Behavior per field in form designer

    currently only one behavior is allowed to be assigned per field. The ability to assign multiple behaviors would allow a greater number of options for configuration.

  14. allow a merge form to be created based on content of a form

    I have several merge forms that may or may not be needed depending on the content of a form. For example I have 2 consent forms that are identical the only difference is the county. I would like to use 1 form and then have a checkbox for the county and it use the data from that checkbox to determine which merge form to complete.

  16. Properly format DW Forms page width for mobile devices

    Currently, when a DocuWare form is displayed on a mobile device, the page width is calculated as if the device is held in landscape mode, even though it is being held in portrait mode. This causes the end user to have to scroll to the right to read text or see if the form field has a drop-down list when in portrait mode.

  17. Add the ability to darken the output from a signature field in a Docuware form

    Add the ability to darken signatures output from the Signature Field element in Docuware Forms. Currently it seems the signatures come out very light when submitted via PC with no ability to darken

  18. Option to set Merge Form Field behaviour as Single Line Text or Multi Lines Text

    As default Merge Form Field displays text as Single Line Text and often text from a web form disappears if it's too long. They only way the text breaks lines is if it's linked to a Multi Lines Text Field from a web form.
    Now with Fill Areas if I want to overlay text from a Keyword type index in workflow to a fill area that wasn't linked to Multi Lines Field it behaves as Single Line Text.
    Could you give us an option to choose Fill Area behaviour (as a Single Line Text or Multi Lines Text), please?

  19. Ability to change the color of the font and the outlined of the answer field.

    The font answers are to light and hard to read. If would had the ability to change the color of the font it would be easier for end user to read the form.
    Ability to change the color of the outline boxes to show up better again helping end users.

  20. I suggest you add a draw box

    Before Docuware we used paper. We had a form that had a space on the back where we could draw a diagram. This was used for maintenance to setup rooms for events so they know where to put tables and things. I tried to use the signature field but making it big caused the form to puke.
