  1. Reverse rule

    When configuring access rights for users, it would be beneficial with a "reverse rule" where you can reverse the filter. If a document type filter is set, the button "reverse rule" tells if the user should be able see only the type defined, or all other types.

  2. Addition of Video format file to play videos from the file cabinet

    Docuware should create an avenue where video files could be played from the file cabinet, whether from the file cabinet or playing outside Docuware.

  3. Allow Organizational Admin to Edit Network ID

    It's always been crazy to me the organizational admin user in DocuWare can not edit a Network ID of a user. You have to log into DW administration as the user to do it. That can be an enormous pain with systems with hundreds of users.

  4. Predefine workflow job that converts DWTIFF (DW5.x and DW4.x) to a new PDF format

    If you are dealing with very large documents that we were in DWTIFF format and now you want to bring back to the web basket it take extremely extremely long time to convert to a new PDF format. It works but it will be better if the conversion so done in the server side so that the clients don’t have to suffer

    Currently there are no plans to have an background job which converts tiff files to PDF. Main reason is, that this could take a long time and bring high load to the Server. On the other side we know that less than 1% of “old” documents are displayed after they are archived (on average).

    For all who have a use case where it makes sense to convert old tiff files please contact our Professional Services Team.

  5. DW 6.10 Automatic Numbering - reuse number if cancelled. Allow alpha prefix.

    This new feature is great. Thank you, Docuware.

    Just couple of things: when the store dialog with AutoNumbering fieldi is envoked, and then the stor operation is cancelled, the number that appeared in the stor dialog is not reused any more - so there is a gap in numbers. Is this an intended behavior or can be it changed so if the store operation is cancelled, that number is still available for the next store.

    Since the field with Automatic Numbering is already a text field, would be nice to be allowed to prefix number portion of the field with some…

  6. Import configuration for Cloud FTP

    DocuWare Cloud offers an FTP Server to use as an import source. This is very useful for small businesses who do not have on premise resources to run Desktop Apps Import 24/7. However, FTP Import does not allow dividing or indexing documents. Being able to assign a DW Import configuration to an FTP folder would be a big help to such customers.

  7. User Productivity Reporting

    DocuWare should include some basic reporting for administrative purposes. Our area tracks 40+ users per week to see if they are meeting their scanning requirements. Right now, I do this via the SQL backend and a few queries, but it would be great is I did not have to do this every week. Tracking users via the web interface is not viable when you have so many active daily scan users.

  8. URL Creater Options

    I would like to be able to create URL's that will take someone to the full Docuware interface while still redirecting them to the piece I want. Currently, if I want to take someone to their task list, it gives them a pruned down interface that doesn't allow them to use all of the features of docuware. Very confusing for the users, as there is no easy way to get the the full interface from the hobbled version.

  9. 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.

  10. Separate the Check Out/Check In and Set As Current Version Rights For File Cabinet Profiles

    Currently the Check Out/Check In and the Set as Current Version rights are bundled together as the "Check Out" right under the File Cabinet Profiles.

    These should be considered as separate rights as we should be able to give users the right to Edit and the ability to set previous versions to current versions without giving the users right to Check Out a document.

  11. Connect 2 Mail to also allow the usage of .msg not just .pdf and .eml

    I think it is great you added the .eml to the Exchange configuration in Coonect2Mail feature of 6.6.
    However the .eml extension does not allow for forward/reply/reply all from the right-click context menu. This is currently allowed with an Active import and Connect2Outlook stored emails.
    The only way to forward/reply/reply all is to edit the document. This causes a security concern for users that do not have the edit right/ however they were still able to forward/reply/ reply all from the context menu.

    Please look at adding the emails as .msg again from the C2M module.

  13. Auto Index Failure Notification

    When an Auto Index error occurs the workflow stops. There does not seem to be any type of notification that occurs, and typically is discovered by the end user when indexes are missing. An email notification to the admin would be great so they could address the error prior to an end users discovering it.

  14. administration tool: allow confirm before exit when pressing OK

    In the Administration Tool I know that I'm not the only person who wants to apply a change and every once in a while accidentally hits the OK button instead of Apply. I think it might be sufficient to rename it "Save and Close" ... I do appreciate the Ctrl-S and I'm trying to build that habit, but still. Keeps getting me.

  16. Improve Auto Indexing fault tolerance on error

    Auto Indexing will go into error state after first seeing connection loss and not re-attempt without manual starting process from DocuWare Administration Utility.
    Allowing for another attempt after a set time-frame would greatly help managing this module as re-starting these processes can become very time intensive.

  18. Notification

    A document stored in the file cabinet ready for email notification. (so in the notification table). A user logs in during the day and approves invoice randomly… At 4pm (or whatever time you assign) however, he will still get an email notification to let him know that he has invoices to approve even though he has already completed his action. It would be good if we could remove this. What do you think?

  19. Batch user tools for managing users.

    Some installations have hundreds or thousands of users. We need tools to manage sub-groups, for ex., the DW customer's customers customers, or enterprise customers with large divisions. In particular one function badly needed is a wayt to export users (and attributes) to CSV or Excel.

  20. Allow Admin to emulate a user to test permissions viewing, and availability of dialogs/stamps etc

    Allow Admin to emulate a user to test permissions viewing, and availability of dialogs/stamps etc.
