The problem is also in the PC view of the dashboard. As you can see in the new screenshot,
we use 3 rows of start buttons.

1. Row BPS user group -> field staff
2. Row BPS user group -> office staff
3. Row BPS user group -> webcon admins

The picture shows the dashboard for office staff with the only viewable start buttons in 2nd row.

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 ;-)

P.S.: Daniel gave some alternative ways under: https://community.webcon.com/forum/thread/699/15

In reply to: Hi Bjoern,

I haven't tested this, but my best idea is to use a business rule for the attachment name.
The business rule would have two parameters, workflow id and attachment name. With this you should be able to identify the current attachment and return the new name with ATT_ID.

If this doesn't work for some reason, you could add a flow control step afterwards. A check is added, to verify that all attachments have an id in the name. Otherwise increase a counter (technical field), retrieve the first attachment without an Id, update it's name with the counter and test again. :)

An alternative would be to use an item list, whit linked attachments. Than the users could provide some more information and if the users only need an id to which they can refer, than the item list row id could be fine.

There's one draw back with the first option: If the user adds two attachments with the same name from different folders, this will probably fail. On the other hand, it may work, if the updates are processed sequential, than the first attachment is already renamed when the other ones name is determined.

Off topic:
Is there any chance to move this thread from 'user voice' to 'forum'.

Hi Daniel,

thanks for your tricks to manage this problem. I will try them and post the results if something works.

Nevertheless i suggest a new function in the user voice for future WebCon versions.

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 in the picture).

At the moment we are using seperate dashboards, which are not always necessary, because we are using the same
informations on both dashboards.

So, if there would be the possibility to get rid of those dummy pictures, it would be great.

Thanks in advance,
Bjoern Poller

Good morning everyone,

i am wondering, if someone of you already managed to rename the attachments with a kind of numbering within webcon.
Continous number or just the ATT_ID would be fine.

I am using one process for picture documentation and beside 6 picturefields there is the possibility to attach as many pictures as the user wants to the attachment section. After renaming them with the "update attachment action" while going to the next step, now all have the same name. It would be great if there is a way to give them unique filenames.

Thanks for your help,
Bjoern
