• IE vs. Chrome Performance After Upgrade to 7.1

    I have a customer who has upgraded DocuWare from 6.12 to 7.1.

    They use both Chrome and IE in their environment.  In 6.12 there was not a noticeable difference in the performance of each.  Since the upgrade to 7.1 there is a noticeable difference in the performance of IE.  It is much slower than Chrome.  Two places it is most noticeable are document trays load slower and search result lists take longer to appear after a search button is hit.

    Has anyone else seen this?  Or have upgrades been done from 6.12 to 7.1 with no noticeable difference?

    In the File Cabinet go to the Permissions.  In the Permissions section you will turn on Advanced Permissions.  Inside there you can create a custom profile that does not include annotations.
  • Validation To Prevent Storing Duplicate Docs

    I have a customer needing to prevent the storing of duplicate documents based on three different fields.  The Validation Sample Application that is provided by following the link on the Store Dialog in DocuWare 6.12 includes a sample of doing just what I need.

    I downloaded the files and followed the instructions provided.  I am in no way, shape or form a develper by any stretch of the imagination but can follow instructions and these instructions must be well done.  I successfully have a REST service running and checking for Duplicates.  Since I don't want to have the server logged in with a Command Prompt window open to run the service, I have set it up as a Scheduled Task.  It seems to work just fine.

    Is this the way to run such a service or is there a better way?

  • Perfect!

    It works that way.

    Thanks much for the info.  This will be a much cleaner workflow now!

  • Workflow Setup

    Hello Phil,

    I created two different data assignment steps.  Still get mm/DD/yyyy.

    Here is what I have done.  



  • Date not carried over

    This would be so much simpler if I can get it to work.

    In my workflow I populated the USDate from an index field and it returned a result of 1/9/2018 12:00:00 AM as expected.

    Trying to populate the EuroDate string from that result using the Format statement returned mm/DD/yyyy instead of the actual value.  Did I not set this up correctly?  Workflow setup screenshot uploaded.



  • Convert Date Format

    I have a Date field that is populated from a database with a Date field in the MM/dd/yyyy format.  In a Workflow Engine email I need to present that date to users in another country as dd/MM/yyyy.  Does anyone know of a way to convert a date with an Arithmetic expression or something that will flip the dd and MM fields?

    I have a way to do it by creating multiple global variables for Full Date, Month, Day and Year, Reformatted Date.  I can then convert my date to a string, piece it out with Split expressions and then put it all back together in a Global Variable to be inserted into my email but a convert statment of some sort would be much easier.
