When processing an instance in a given workflow, sometimes there is a need to change fields available to a user or manage privileges to the instance. You can use the “Change form type” action, which allows you to change the type of the form you are currently working on. This action is available only for the Menu button trigger. An example workflow for registering contracts has been created. Access to individual contracts depends on the confidentiality level, which can be changed.Read more>
Electronic documents often contain barcodes that allow you to find the appropriate document in the system using a barcode scanner. The “Read a barcode” action is used to decrypt information saved in the barcode and transfer it to the WEBCON BPS form. The action supports a wide range of numeric and alphanumerical barcode standards such as Code 128, EAN-13, QR Code, UPC-E. The “Read a barcode” action allows you to read the barcode content from the attachment added to the process instance and enter it on the form.

This article describes the “Read data from an Excel file” action that allows you to import data from an Excel file to the form. It can be especially useful when the process requires entering many slightly different documents – thanks to this, you can quickly complete fields on the WEBCON BPS form. It also can be used when you do not want to create accounts and give access to internal company resources to external people. We have created the simple “Leave requests” workflow with the “Read data from an Excel file” action. It allows an employee (who temporarily does not have access to the company’s intranet) to submit a leave request.Read more>
The “Item list” form field is used to store any number of data rows organized into columns.

For this purpose, you can use the “Change items list values” action which will be presented in this article based on the simple “Invoice approval” workflow. The "Change items list values" action is a useful tool that allows you to edit the value of the item list. The available three modes of this action provide full possibilities of automatic and configurable modification of the item list, without the participation of the user filling out the form.Read more>
