Changes to grouping/filtering multi value picker fields

Hi everyone, maybe I have a wrong idea how a multi value picker field is used in filters/groups in reports. Current situation: The picker field will store the selected values in the order they have been chosen. If you use this field as a group, every unique "string" will be used as a group. Example: Workflow instance 1: IT: Research & Development Workflow instance 2: IT: Research & Development;Quality Management Workflow instance 3: IT: Research & Development;Quality Managem (...)

Update variable id (field /rule references etc.) in translations during export/import

Hi everyone, if you are going to use field references, process rules or similar in translations, these won't work once the process is transferred to another environment. See this thread for more details/images: https://community.webcon.com/forum/thread/1149 In my opinion this is an error, so I created a ticket. The answer was, that this is the intended behavior. There I'm creating this user voice. :) Best regards, Daniel

Start different subworkflows in parallel

Hi, I have this situation: - one main workflow - 4 different subworkflows that must start in parallel and wait until all subworkflows are done. I tried with Start a subworkflow action, but works for a single subworkflow. I don't want to use hyperlink. I must enter on the subworkflow in the start step. Is possible to start different subworkflows from a main workflow with SQL? I don't have an item list. I need to define an SQL action for each subworkflow? Can I have an example? Thank (...)

Monospaced Font in text areas

Hello everyone, having some experience in coding, makes it for me obvious that font used in text areas should be monospaced. Simply it's easier to read code, when it's monospaced. In attachment you can see and compare how that simple lines are better aligned, with monospaced font. When you edit some more complex SQL Queries, or when you deal with some custom HTML element - it would make life just easier. There is some question, how to deal with with those Webcon Variable blocks - how they shou (...)

Expanding objects when clicking on variables in the designer

When using objects in the code editor and hover on top of them it shows you the location (Very usefull), but it would lower the ammounts of clicks and speed up the development if by doubleclicking or rightclicking on those, the menu on the right would expand automaticaly.

Opening usages actions from usages window

A feature we think will save a lot of time for our developers would be the ability to double click the on the usages actions and open those actions in a popup. All kind of ussages (Fields, Busines entities and so on...).

Extending Reports with external data

When creating the reports it would be useful to have the option of joining the WFElements table to other external tables in order to show data from other systems in the same report without the need to duplicate this data on Webcon. ​This way the integrations with other systems would be even easier and there would be no need to duplicate data that already exist in some other system. Can you consider developing such functionality?

Grouping for datetime columns should show values according to column display option

Hi, I have created a report, in which i am only interested in showing the Year-portion of a datetime-field. This works good until i try to group for the shown values in there. The groups are not built by the years in this case, but still on the entire value. It would make more sense to group according to the display option the grouped column is set to. Especially because i dont know how to do calculated columns in SOLR reports like i used to in SQL-reports. ;) I have attached a screenshot t (...)

Enable using camera for no mobile devices

HI, I propose to add possibility to do photos from builded cameras in laps/computer/no mobile devices like mobile. So to not do photo, save it on device and now addind to element. But to add exact after to the photo by camera, and run camera from element. It's could by by custom action or use build funcionality. That problems show on Windows Surfface oraz normal windows where we can't use such functions.

Suggestion: WEBCON 2021 - New layout option for DASHBOARD [50%-25%-25%]

Hello there, with working much more with compact start buttons, i am optimizing our older dashboard layouts. We have a few applications, which have many start buttons. So i was wondering, if, maybe, in further coming WEBCON versions there could be the possibility to add 2 more "section layouts" like i posted in the picture. Mostly the usefull one would be: half side left, and two small columns in the right half. With this layout options designing dashboards and grouping buttons would work muc (...)

Buttons for Instance and Site link in notifications always visible if Instance and Site links are set to be Hidden

In the notifications, if the user does not want to show the instance link and site link, the buttons keep showing up in the email but empty. If you want to erase them, the only option is to create a new template and discover in the HTML code where the buttons are configured. This makes no sense because the buttons don't have any other usage as showing the links so if the person chooses to hide them, it should behave as one compound only and not 2 separate things as the buttons alone, don't s (...)

Webcon 2021.1.3.188 Problem with parameters order in form rule

Hi there, I have observed the problem. During the transfer between DEV-TEST-PROD environments there is an uncontrolled change in the order of formal parameters in the form rules. This results wrong assigning the actual parameters when the rule was called after import.

WebCon 2021.1.4.55 Misbehaviour Form Field - Floating Point number

Dear WebCon Team, in our view, we found following misbehaviour of the form field typ - Floating Point. If you try to set this field with a periodical fraction like (14/15)*100 = 93,333333... you will get an error message. In our oppinion this is a misbehaviour, because the field itself should handle such an "exception". And it is hard to find ;) A possible solution is to wrap the "Round" function around the rule/result before setting the value to the field. Could you please check, if this cou (...)

Standard Function "Attachments count" does not work any longer in 2021.1.4.55 on Start - Step

Dear WebCon Team, we just updated to 2021.1.4.55 and recognized, that the so long working function "Attachments Count" does not work properly any longer on the intital step of a workflow as long there is no Instance ID. For Example I would like to validate if there is an attachment uploaded or not (see picture). If I do a path on the step itself --> Instance ID --> the rule works fine!!! I think it is a bug. Thanks a lot

DASHBOARD changes from 2021.1.3.434 to 2021.1.4.55: The space for start button text is now far too limited

Hi, we just did the upgrade from 2021.1.3.434 to 2021.1.4.55: One of the changes also concerns the look of the start buttons on dashboards. Because we like to use longer names, we now have a little problem with the limitation of space as you can see in the attached picture. Maybe in upcoming versions it is possible to rethink this change. Thanks in advance, Bjoern Poller
