Subworkflow SQL - Saving the ID

When the user sets up a Subworkflow using the SQL version, it's not possible to save the ID of the instance created. This is only allowed doing other type of actions and most of the times returning Concurrency Errors in the system. This is allowed already in the Subworkflow normal version.

Designer Studio: Adding windows spell checking

Hi everyone, I'm not sure whether I'm the only one, but I got so used to the native spell checking of Windows that I tend to forget to the spelling. Sometimes it happens because I make a mistake and sometimes it happens because of latency or other issues in an RDP session. Currently I'm using the BPS translation tool and checking the texts in word. I'm wondering if native Windows spell check could be added to the Designer Studio: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/system.windows.cont (...)

Updates to BPS Translation Tool

Hi everyone, I would be glad if the following changes would be implemented: 1. Adding the new Input placeholder 2. In case of data tables the display name should be used instead of the column name. This is especially a problem if the data source is a BPS internal view. WFD_AttChoose1 isn't really helpful for translating. :) 3. There's a slight labeling issue. The PathAndTasks sheet doesn't contain the correct label for object type 33. It should be PathDocumentationDescription instead of PathDe (...)

Webcon Portal - export to Excel from Data table bug?

Data table attribute gives opportunity to export containing data to Excel using its default configuration, the sole problem is it can only export top 1000 rows, when its quite common to display bigger chunks of data in that form field. Documentation that redirects to below website doesn't mention anything about such limit: https://howto.webcon.com/exporting-a-data-table-form-field-to-an-excel-file/ I am aware of alternatives such as user actions / sdk, but it is about using built-in functi (...)

Form rule foreach line in item list expanded functionality

It was a great addition when the foreach functionality was added in form rules for item lists, but they seem to be limited only to get and set values. There are plenty of reasons for witch you could need to disable a field or color ii differently using form rules. It would be great if styling fields with the foreach functionality would also be possible. I have attached an example where the fields marked with yellow should be disabled if the checkbox on the row is checked.

Increase the length limit of regex validation.

Is there a reason behind 100 characters regex limitation? I was trying to use a regex for validation of Romanian personal identification numbers (CNP) and I got the following error attached. I think this limit should be increased a little.

Suggestion: DESIGNER DESK - not allowing to place more than one START STEP

Hi there, by using the Designer Desk in 2021.1.3.205 our user made the mistake to use multiple START STEPs while designing a workflow for us. Also it is not possiple to save this work, it would be better, if the user gets an error message, if he/she wants to place another START STEP or it doesnt work at all (like in the Designer Studio). Bye, Bjoern Poller

Views of instances

Hi, We have encountered a 2nd customer asking us for the following functionality: When a user is opening an instance from a report, a list with all the users who viewed the data should be available. I am not sure how that could be handled when users preview a report, as the reports could contain all the data from the instances. That functionality should probably be added on the reports somehow, but that is just my brain talking loudly.

Visual cue for closed threads

Hi, ist there any chance to display a visual cue, like in the user voice, when a thread is closed? Currently the only hint is, that the "Add Post" button is not available, even after logging in. This may be ok, if you know how things work here but for newcomers this won't be so easy to understand. Best regards, Daniel

Picker: Same configuration options for Internal View, Dictionary and Template data sources

Hi, I really like the new default picker option "Show link to selected workflow instance". Unfortunately it's only available for the data source "BPS Internal view". If I select a dictionary and probably a template process, it's not available. Therefore I have to create an Internal view in addition to the automatically created dictionary data source. For those who don't know what this option does: The picker value is rendered as a link which can be displayed in the preview window. That's a rea (...)

Workflow preview generation

The preview generation functionality should be somehow improved. Currently it is bound to how big the designer studio window is and implicitly how big the resolution of your monitor is. We have some very big workflows that won't fit on any screen and the preview would always be blurry and unusable.

LARGER FONTS FOR STUDIO

Please add an option to configure font size in studio. Especially with high resolution monitors studio is almost unusable due to very small fonts. This is totally not user friendly especially for people with even slight vision disabilities (wearing glasses).

API, or any other kind of automatic deployment from one environment to another.

In WEBCON the development is so fast and agile that it started to create bottlenecks in the deployment activity. We are using Azure DevOps and it would be great if some kind of pipeline could be created in order to start and deploy things in an automated manner.

Data Row filed available in reports

I know this might be a controversial one when it comes to performance, but sometimes it could be quite useful to be able to bring that value in reports. Some of that sometimes could also be done with calculated columns in reports, but it could be easier I suppose.

Updating 'Winnovative HTML to PDF Converter' version

Hi, I've run into an 'issue' using the 'Generate a Pdf file' action. https://community.webcon.com/forum/thread/770 I used 'new' HTML / CSS features which haven't been supported or even been available by the provided version of the 'Winnovative HTML to PDF Converter' engine. WEBCON BPS utilizes version 7, while the current version is 15. As far as I could find out version 7 dates back to 18 Feb 2012. https://winnovative-html-to-pdf-converter-applic.software.informer.com/versions/ Version 1 (...)

Suggestion: Limit length of text fields

Often there are scenarios, where the length of a text input field should be limited. This can basically done by means of a regular expression. However, this would still allow the user, to enter more than the allowed characters. It would be great, to have a property in the configuration section to limit the maximum length.

Absence charts should have the same options to save personal views as normal reports

The absence chart lacks to possibility to save personal views as it is possible for normal reports. Only Administrators can add and modify views via the configuration menu. For absence charts the same options from modifying views should be possible as for other reports.

Suggestion for an improved ACTION: Update attachment -> ATT_ID as parameter for new filename

Hello WEBCON, i was struggeling with the "Update attachment" action. Our users have the abillity to to upload as many pictures they need to the attachment section in one of our procceses. We would like to rename all files to the same mayor file name with an attached ATT_ID or counting number. It would be great if in future versions there would be a third parameter under Attachment details, where the ATT_ID is selectable (SEE PICTURE). A counting number as fourth parameter would be even better (...)

DASHBOARD: Start-Buttons with 'no visibility' in separate rows -> Dummy Start-Button pictures are shown

Good morning, we are using WebCon 2020 on mobile devices more frequently. Those mobil devices are not allowed to see all start buttons (upper left in the picture / on the upper right the buttons are set to be visible). If i use one dashboard row where only some buttons have visibilty rights, everything is ok. Just the allowed buttons are shown. If the not allowed start-buttons are in a seperate row (buttom screen in picture), there are viewable dummy pictures instead of empty space (upper left (...)
