• Web Forms to Meged PDF

    I have created a form and placed checkboxes on the form for the users to check.  I called it checkbox1 and checkbox2 for this example.  Form works great - I'm able to check which one I need.

    When I go to do merge to an existing PDF, I got to place the checkbox on the form and it shows that it will place an "X" but it does not.  It places the entire text string.  

    I attached a copy of the "Fill Area Settings" - it shows in the sample it will put an "X" but the fill mode is not editable and is set to field content.  How can I change this?

  • .NET API

    I'm working with checking out a file to the file system and when I hit the line "Using result = Await connection.EasyCheckOutToFileSystemAsync(fileCabinetId, docId).ConfigureAwait(False)" - it exits the function and does not download a file. No exception is being thrown.  I walked thru the code line by line.  The variables being passed in are correct - the connection is open, fileCabinetId and docId all have values and they do match up to what DocuWare has.  I'm confused on this part.

    Async Function CheckOutToFileSystem(ByVal connection As ServiceConnection, ByVal fileCabinetId As String, ByVal docId As Integer) As Task(Of FileInfo)

                Set_Status("Downloading file...")

                Using result = Await connection.EasyCheckOutToFileSystemAsync(fileCabinetId, docId).ConfigureAwait(False)
                    Dim tempPath = Path.Combine(Path.GetTempPath(), result.EncodedFileName)

                    Set_Status("Path: " & tempPath)

                    Using file = System.IO.File.Create(tempPath)
                        Using stream = result.Response.Content
                            Await stream.CopyToAsync(file).ConfigureAwait(False)
                        End Using
                    End Using

                    Set_Status("Download complete!")

                    Return New FileInfo(tempPath)

                End Using
            Catch ex As Exception
            End Try

        End Function
  • Creating Lists in DocuWare 7.2

    Is it possible to create a list that will only display records if your first and last name equal what's in the supervisor field?

    I didn't want to have to create a list for each supervisor - I want it to filter based off the supervisor name but I can not find any reserved words you can use.  

    I've added a picture of the list.
  • File Cabinet - Unique Vendor and Invoice #

    I have created a file cabinet and I want to know if I can make the "Vendor" and "Invoice #" unique together.  Example, company "ABC" has an invoice "123" and I want to make sure that invoice number can't be used again for that vendor.  But if company was "DEF" and invoice number "123" that can be entered as it is different by vendor name.

    I am on DocuWare 7.2.
  • DocuWare - Old Document Trays

    I have a file cabinet I am looking to remove but I cannot because there is old document tray still tied to it.  The user does not exist anymore and I found the file cabinet by going to select * from DWFCSettings where name = 'paulette' and then I looked at the settings and it referenced web basket WEB_BASKET_BUFFER_91 so I then looked at dwbaskets and I see the tables for WEB_BASKET_BUFFER_91

    How do I remove this web basket so I can remove the file cabinet that is no longer needed?  Do I just delete the tables for WEB_BASKET_BUFFER_91 and then the entry from DWFCSettings?
  • DocuWare 7.1 - Full Text Search

    We recently upgraded to 7. a few months back and I've noticed that the full text is not working.  I've checked all the services - everything is running.  What should I check to see why it's not doing a full text index?

    I tried on one file cabinet to reset it - before that it was able to search and find 1 document and now it is able to find 10 but there are a lot more documents.

    I checked the log file for full text index and there are no log files.
  • Notifications (OnPrem)

    I am having a problem where I setup notifications based on the index fields changes and they are not firing off.  I was looking around and everything looked right - I tested the SMTP connection and that is working.  I deleted the notification and then recreated it and still cannot get the notification to kick off.

    So I went to the log file for Notifications and I am seeing this:

  • DocuWare 7.1 - Server Migration

    I am currently running DocuWare on a server that I need to migrate to a new server.  I am looking at KBA36247 on how to move a DocuWare System (7.x) - has anyone done this before?  If so - is there anything I should be aware of?  It seems straight forward but just wanted to see if anyone had any issues before.
  • DocuWare Platform .NET API - Checking Documents In/Out


    I have been writing a small program that will collect our computer inventory and store that in DocuWare.  Everything is working great.  I have a question on checking a document in/out.  I want to be able to check a document out and attach the new specs sheet to the old one and check it back in.  I've followed the example https://developer.docuware.com/dotNet_CodeExamples/8949abfb-4386-4e6d-81fc-e0b674ec3fb4.html 

    Is there a way to make this sync vs async?  I would want my program to wait while the file is being downloaded from DocuWare so I can merge my spec sheets together and then initiate an upload.
  • RE: DocuWare 7.1 - Store Dialog

    Hi Simon,

    Thank you - I was able to resolve item #1.  I'm still a little stuck on item #2.  I've attached a copy of my store dialog.  I would like it if I can select the RIN from the drop down list and then it populates the name from the client name.  Example, I select 123 and it is associated with Doe, Jane - I would want that to be automatically filled in.  Same if I edit the client name field and remove Doe, Jane and put Doe, John and it would update the RIN field with 124.  Is that possible?  I thought there was a way to filter an index field based off the entry in another.
