WEBCON BPS provides tools for visual modification of the end user interface that goes with your system, like customizing the Portal interface theme to match your company’s colors, or inserting your own logo. In version 2020.1.3.277, the application color can now be selected from a color picker, instead of a list of predefined colors – so that finding a color that matches your company color scheme should not be a problem. To change the application color, go to the WEBCON BPS Designer Studio, enter the selected application and select the “General” tab.

To personalize your WEBCON BPS Portal appearance you can change the logo and color scheme of the user interface.. The global system administrator has the ability to modify these elements of the site. This article describes how to add logo to Portal – and replace the WEBCON logo in the top left corner.

In 2020.1.3. there is the ability to add the graphic file directly from a file on your computer.

When building your business proces, there is the ability of adding a logo, picture, or other image decoration to the form – the simplest way to this is by using the “Picture” form field. WEBCON BPS Portal gives the ability to calculate the value of the picture in real time (without the need to save the document).Thanks to correctly configured form rules, you can easily manipulate pictures. This will help you to organize reports and increase the transparency of the presented data.

WEBCON BPS Designer Studio allows you to configure the form fields’ appearance so that they can be more transparent and legible, as well as tailored to your users’ preferences. The following article lists several ideas on how to manage the appearance of your form fields.

When working with WEBCON BPS applications, there are often situations when a user wants to find a specific instance. For this purpose, they will use the search engine or try to find the necessary information using reports on the application’s site. The WEBCON BPS interface works quickly, but by opening the full page form of each instance individually, only to discover that it isn’t the one they are looking for, is a waste of time. The situation looks similar when you have the form containing hyperlinks to another workflow e.g. previous employee’s vacation requests.

During document processing, it is important to check the correctness of the entered data – mostly to make sure that an incorrect value doesn’t cause issues further down the workflow. WEBCON BPS gives access to multiple avenues of form validation: RegEx, ‘Validate form’ action, and the one we will be taking a closer look at– setting up a form rule on the path. This article describes the use of this functionality. Embedding the correctness rule on the workflow path is a convenient and fast way to verify fields. In addition, it simply limits calling the rule to a specific place of the workflow. Verifying the correctness of the entered data allows you to avoid mistakes and therefore spend less time correcting them.
