  1. Certified Digital Electronic Signature with Stamps

    We have moved to a digital age where for compliance, regulations, or demand we must be able to sign documents with “Certified Digital Electronic Signature”. Multiple countries are applying this technology to authenticate the authenticity of the document. Can this technology or process be implemented with a DocuWare stamp?

    • 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

      • allow the SmartConnect button to be bound to an anchor

        The readout areas can be bound to an anchor, but the SmartConnect button itself can't so I have various SmartConnect configurations for a browser-based application in which the button will wander around a bit depending upon which browser the user is using, their screen resolution, and their zoom settings to the point where SmartConnect is actually unusable in a number of situations because the button is obscuring other things.

        • allow searching on the document type field that DocuWare already captures and displays

          We love that wonderful icon that shows up on the left of result lists that indicates document type (ie. Word, PDF, Email, etc), but it would be great if there were a way to include that in a search dialog so if users want to filter to show only emails, for example, they can. I'm just telling them to sort the result list by doc type for now by clicking the column heading.

          • Add Security assertion markup language (SAML) Support

            To be able to integrate DocuWare in an architecture where SSO is implement with SALM V2 protocol , DocuWare needs to implement such protocol.

            This would be a major improvement for On Premise and also Cloud architecture to provide simple and standardize way for SSO service

            For instance the Azure Architecture supports SAML 2.0

            • Add option for numeric field without commas

              Can an option be added when creating a numeric filed to choose whether or not to display commas to separate thousands? There are times that having a field that shows a year is useful and the commas are not commonly used when displaying this type of information.

              • Stamp Bitmap with Form Field

                Currently, if I define a stamp using a bitmap (a nice big angled "Rejected.jpg" image for example), I also want to require the user to specify a rejection reason.

                If I do not use a bitmap, I can specify fields. But if I use a bitmap I cannot. This by definition means that I cannot combine a bitmap with a prompt to specify a region.

                Please add the ability to use fields with bitmap stamps so that we can prompt users for additional data to go with the stamp.

                • I suggest to allow more colors for the stamps or web baskets

                  I would like to have the option of choosing more colors when creating any of the following... stamps/web baskets/ file cabinets/ decisions on workflow manager. I have a couple of clients that have a bunch of file cabinets and different colors will make it a lot easier on the eyes.

                  • Creating reports in DocuWare administration

                    It is very important to create custom reports about users including role, profile, and group assignment, user permissions on each file cabinet. It is an added value in DocuWare administration for auditing purpose and PCI compliance.

                        • Add in a feature that allows you to export and import specific configuration settings.

                          As a Docuware DSC it would be extremely helpful to be able to export and import settings and configurations such as Import configurations, predefined workflows, stamps, Docuware Printer configs, and web baskets.

                          Countless hours have been wasted recreating these things for customers or waiting on access to a customer server. Adding this feature would eliminate that because we could import backup configurations and/or build them in house and then transfer them to the customers server via an import process.

                          I understand that a lot of these setting are currently grabbed in a System Settings Backup, however, most of the time…

                            • Stop forcing alphabetical sorting of Select Lists.

                              We can create Select Lists grouped and arraigned in the order that makes sense to the user. But DocuWare insists on resorting the list in alphabetical order. PLEASE STOP DOING THIS!

                              Now we have to create Select Lists with numeric prefixes to force our sort order. Then the users have to memorize a complete list of prefixes, to allow rapid data entry. They should be able to just start typing the description and have it appear, but be able to pick from a sensibly ordered list if the they need help.

                              • File Cabinet Creation - Allow the order of fields to be carried over to all dialogs

                                The most annoying part about setting up a file cabinet is sorting the fields in each of the dialogs. It would be nice if I could check a box that would take the sorting of the store dialog and transfer it to the Storage, Results List, and Info Dialog. This would knock off at least 10-20 minutes from every cabinet build.

                                  In situations where users do not have administrator access to their desktops it would be nice to be able to specify a service account that could be used to install applications or plugins. The new upgrade feature is great, but would not work if the users don't have admin access.

                                    • allow for the global setting for all users to open Docuware Viewer with index dialog in a new window by default

                                      The reason for this is that right now, if we utilize the default setting "Always show DocuWare Viewer in same window", it is possible for a user to have several items in the queue, and viewing one item (by double clicking on it) but actually editing index values for something completely different on the screen. This could result in errors. Many errors.

                                      If one utilizes the setting to open the viewer with index dialog in a new window, the document rendered for view always is tied to the index values that you see.

                                      • Field Can't be Empty should be made a property of a store dialog

                                        This was marked as complete in 6.9 under "Mandatory fileds" idea, but I do not see it available. It appears that field can't be empty is still a property of the FC profile which means it is the same for all store dialogs.
                                        I'd like to be able to make field compulsory for some dialogs, but not others, For example when user stores Invoices using 'Store Invoices' store dialog the field be 'can't be empty' but when using another store dialog this field is optional.
                                        Same way you've done for 'Select List Only' property.

                                        • Are able to automatically create baskets when a new user is synced from AD

                                          When using AD to sync users it would be really handy if you could choose to automatically create a Web Basket for these users.

                                          Currently you have to create all the users and then go and create the web baskets separately. This is ok when you are first configuring the system but later down the line it becomes an issue when the sync is on a schedule as you have no idea who does/doesn't have a basket.
