  1. Allow to use stamp at decision level and not task level

    It would be great if we could have the possibility to select an option : if one of the decision of the task should have a stamp and not another

    For example : If i validate an invoice, stamp is placed
    If i use the decision : request info is used, there is no need to place any stamp on the invoice.

    Options are currently very limited regarding task stamps

    Thank you.

  3. Task List: Assign a certain result list per task, per workflow, for workflow controllers.

    Result lists are useful. Having multiple result lists is a necessary feature which exists for good reason. However, all users of all task lists have the same result list configuration. Whichever result list is picked as "Default" is used for every task list system-wide.

    Example: Accounting users (especially workflow controllers) should be able to have different options available compared to approvers.

    This also goes for the "edit index entries" dialog of the result list. Even if an approver has (and needs) permissions to edit certain fields for workflow tasks, we do not want to present this as an option when…

  6. Comments section in the workflow

    Some of our Workflows can get long and complicated, and for support reasons would be great to have a "Comments" node that isn't connected to the actual workflow, but simply displays in the viewer window. This way we can see at a glance what certain nodes are doing

  7. enable Conditions in Workflow to behave more like Select Case statements than If...Else statements

    In one of our workflows, we have three possible conditions that could be present

    Let's say these are A, B, and C.

    The only way I can describe the logic about what is and what could be is to draw from my programming background.

    Workflow only lets us set up the logic that it might look like this:

    If Condition = A Then
    ... (A's actions)
    Else
    ... If Condition = B Then
    ... (B's actions)
    ...Else
    ...... If Condition= C Then
    ......... (C's actions)
    ...... Else
    ......... (other conditions)
    .......End If
    ... End If
    End If

    But if I…

  8. allow us to use different fonts or text colours

    This is a fairly simple idea: allow us to use different fonts or text colours in the decision forms.

    Use case: an invoice that's part of an AP approval workflow fails validation and we'd like the reason for the validation-failure to be in red text to draw the user's attention to it.

  9. Improve connector lines

    Connector lines are impossible to work with and make look logical. They move on their own to mess up the WF when any step is moved or removed. A great model for the designer would be the connector lines in Visio. Please improve the designer with useable, logical and clear connector line composition logic.

  10. Make Workflow Designer variables available in text area of stamp

    WFD has a lot of ability to massage index field data that can be re-written to indices. It would be nice to get those values into text fields in WFD stamps. Currently the "Stamps include:" options are a limited number of unalterable data items. It would be great to include WF variables in additional text field(s).

  11. Workflow - Selecting multiple task to assign a new user

    When a new user replace an old one, changing all the assignement of running task can only be done one by one.
    It could be good that the Workflow controler can change all the task of running job to a new user by a mulitple selection in WebViewer or a specific menu in Designer.

  14. Workflow Validation Error message customizable

    When creating a validation within a task in the Workflow Designer, one can only write a fixed error message. It would be way more user-friendly if this message was customizable just the same way as workflow fields are, e.g. a description field.
    This would allow inclusion of global variables and index data in the error message, providing great flexibility and a way to point the user to their error more specifically.

  15. 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…

  16. Make Workflow Designer easier to keep tidy with multi-select

    Make Workflow Designer easier to keep tidy, like Process Planner is.

    I create a workflow on a VM to get it right, deploy to the customer system so the Workflow Designer layout looks intuitive to follow, and then any tweaks to the design of the Workflow from that point result in it looking like a bird's nest of connectors and boxes.

    Multi-select would help quite a bit here

  17. Add ability to invoke another workflow from a current workflow

    Would be awesome if you could have a module that would start another workflow. It would make large workflows easier to design and keep them cleaner. I know that you can do this by using modified index and such but I always run into issues with that and workflows starting when they shouldn't. Would be a lot better if you could just create workflows and then call them when needed within another workflow.

  19. Workflow Designer - Add option to 'Cancel' if Error exits not connect

    When Publishing a Workflow and forget to connect an Error exit, warning is displayed only with 'Publish' button (see attached).

    It'd be useful to have a 'Cancel' button as well to return to Workflow and connect the missing exit instead of being forced to publish incomplete Workflow.

    Thanks!
