  1. enhanced Field Types like Checkboxes

    • Professional Query with Platform Services

      The platform services should support searching a file cabinet with a query string (in GAPI called ProfessinalQuery), so that queries in the form

      ([STATUS]=EMPTY() AND [DOKTYP]="INVOICE")
      OR
      ([STATUS]="VALID" AND [DOKTYP]="INVOICE-SIGNED")

      are possible.

      • Master and detail mechanism for filecabinets

        Today filecabinets only allow scalar fields for indexing documents.(Some exceptions as keyword fields, but that strategy does not comply)

        It would be great to have the ability to have a master/detail concept. Allowing to store the information regarding the master document and its childs. INVOICEs are probably the best example, the filecabinet would allow to store data as PO number, total aumount, buyer info, etc (as it already does) and also in someway allow to store info about the ordered products info (SKU, unit, description, amount, etc).

        • Pro Active hotfix pack installation

          It is consensual that the HFpacks should be installed.
          Instead of spending a lot of time (and the need to remember to do it) looking for the latest HFpack, it would be very nice that regularly DW could show, somehow, even in the administrator, that a new HFpack is available.
          Then the administrator could decide when to install it.
          To the eyes of the customer this would make DW look a lot friendlier.

            Thank you for your idea. We are already planning to implement a feature to make it easier for the administrator to get an overview and install all hotfixes, similar to the approach mentioned in the post by Joao.
            We currently cannot say exactly when this idea will be implemented, but we will keep you updated.

          • Role-, Profile- and User-Managemant via .NET SDK

            It should be possible to manage roles, (archive-)profiles and users by using the .NET SDK. Users for the WebClient-ReadOnly-License must be created manually, which prevents the integration of DW into external applications.
            Addtionally it would be great to create/copy archives via code. Having several customers with the same archive structure with different users (and rights) always requires manual configuration of users (and roles and prfiles, and so on) rofiles when adding new customers.

            • add a simple validation tool not requiring programming...

              Many products use regular expressions and simple query to existing data to validate data input Docuware can already create a file or data connection, create a mask and pull data back and put it into fields we just do not do it at the time of entry........lets do that and make Docuware a more complete front end product!

              • send byte array using Platform .NET API

                Currently using docuware platform is not possible to send files without saving them to disk, it would be grait to send files using byte array or streams.

                • REST API Example

                  It would be nice to see an example on how to do an simple login using the "REST API" in PHP(curl) or jQuery(Ajax)

                  Please don't point me to documentation as it is poorly documented....

                    • Create a new field type that auto populates date/time and/or user.

                      New type of field that is perhaps connected to or monitors another field like a fixed select list. When one of the selections are made it records the date and modifying user. Each selection can record in a different field. For example when the "Status Field" is set to "approved" it can auto populate the date on a field labeled "Approved Date." There are other ways of doing this but if it was a built in function to a new field type it would perhaps cut down on the amount of fields needed and workflow settings.

                      • Append document in front from file system

                        Currently it is only possible to append documents in front of another, already archived document by having the documents which you want to append in a basket or filecabinet.

                        We would like to have the possibility to use a file from filesystem or simply a stream instead of uploading the file to a basket first.

                            • Bring back the ability to edit SAP System fields for administrators

                              In DCW 5.1c I was able to edit the SAP System fields. Especially the field SAP Status. There are situations where we have to resend the document to SAP and now I can't do it without updating the field directly in the database.

                              It makes no sense do not allow an administrator to edit these field in the Client. I as an administrator can alter them in the SQL database anyway but it is more effort and more risky!

                                • HTTP Documentation for REST API

                                  Release a Documentation on HTTP layer for the REST API described at http://help.docuware.com/sdk/platform/html/66b2ed1e-2aef-452a-97cd-5014bbf0242b.htm.

                                  The DocuWare Knowledge Center states about the release of Docuware 6.8:
                                  With the release of the REST interface "DocuWare Platform Service" the communication between DocuWare and costum application is remodeled. Ultimately, the applications must be updated to use the new interface.
                                  However, the documentation at its current state does only describe a .NET librabry that wraps the REST API.

                                  Providing a documentation of the underlying HTTP interface will eliminate the need for DocuWare to develop such a wrapper for a programming language in order to support…

                                    • Multiple custom names for document types

                                      Let's say a customer has multiple departmens that speaks different languages. They have each seperate file cabinets. Now it would be very usefull to be able to use multiple custom document type names, instead of the pre-defined ones.

                                      • Keyword table instead of field

                                        It would be very helpful if you could add some kind of table data as index criteria to a document. In a lot of workflows, for example an incoming invoice process, users need to allocate multiple amounts on specific cost centers or accounts.
                                        At the moment it is only possible to add multiple keyword fields which then can contain multiple data entries but the single entries are not linked to each other.
                                        Of course it should be possible to handle these keyword tables like normal DocuWare fields with the option to configure select lists and define as must entry and…

                                        • Reporting Tool

                                          It's hard to navigate on your ticketing system (not sure if it exist). Well, I actually need help creating a report within Docuware. we are using version 5.1c (build 5.1.3.3407). Aside from using the SQL queries, is there a built-in tool to pull data from docuware and download the file in an excel format?
