Hi, after a few years I noticed that the "Business entity" field is missing from the available columns of a dictionary. Of course, one can create a BPS Internal view to work around it, but it would be great if more "default" (system fields) could be added: - Author - Date created - Last person modifying - Date modified (not listed in the system fields) - Business Entity - Form subtype I highlighted those in the attached image. Best regards, Daniel
Hi, it would be great, if in a multi-tenant WEBCONAPPS environment the deletion of workflows could be activated. I understand that it's easier to remove the whole archive action but there are cases where the delete action is necessary. For example in use case of PCG Academy during the WEBCON DAY. Deleting via REST API may be an option, I haven't tested it but I assume, that this would execute the "Upon instance deleting" trigger. This is not the case with the delete action, for which I'm (...)
Automatic tool to check compatibility after upgrade to new version and reporting potential issue on new version. Steps how it could work: 1. Upgrade DEV to new version (small or big version) 2. Pick list of IDs from PROD (global admin or app admin). 3. Tool is reading all attributes and follow on production processes to recreate all steps as user did (including changing user and their privileges). Starting all parent and child workflows as it was on production. 4. Reporting differences i (...)
Hi, maybe I'm one of the few if not the only one who uses his mobile to access the community. In case this is not the cases it would be great if two things could be checked : 1. I don't find the search box using a mobile. This is true for iOS as well as android. 2. Revise of the layout of a thread. There's a lot of empty space especially if there a quote. Which makes it harder to read. 3. The number of answers is not displayed. Maybe this could be realized at some point to: VISUA (...)
Hi everyone, the start new element API has the mode parameter with the following description: mode String($int32) (query) Optional mode parameter that specifies validation behavior. When empty or standard, all fields will be validated. When set ignoreReadonly, readonly fields won't be set but no error will be returned. Admin value allows to edit readonly fields, but requires admin permissions. Available values : standard, ignoreReadonly, admin I would opt for a different/additional (...)
The substitutions could be a system field so that in the reports it would be possible to see if the instance has a substitute assignee or not instead of manually open each instance to check.
Hello, during my experience with BPS Designer Studio (around 2 years) I've been multiple times in a situation where I had to create 'Constants' for positions from BPS 'Fixed values list'. So there is a short list of values for example Car Types: 1. Sedan 2. Hatchback 3. Pickup Let's say you have a single form, where you want to display fields conditionally - depending on the selected Car Type. To make it well documented instead of putting Car Type (ID) = 1 - you have to create 'Cons (...)
This would be a great option if the attachment could be moved to the indicated item id on the action. Currently, there is an option only to move an attachment from the indicated element to the current one (the one on which the action is) i.e. "copy from", but if it were possible to move an attachment from the current one (the one on which the action is) to the indicated one "copy to" this would solve problems in situations where we need to use a timeout to copy something. An example would be (...)
Hi, I really like the single edit dialog for an item list the only drawback is the term "Save". I'm getting more and more feedback that it is confusing and I have to agree. There's the save button on the workflow form which persists the data in the database. Then there's the save button in the single edit dialog, which will save the values for the row, but does not persist the data of the workflow itself. I wanted to change the term "Save" to "Apply" using the translations but I'm stuck b (...)
Dear Community, how about adding an icon to path button? Something similar to adding an icon to menu button. I think it could be very useful and could improve user experience in this matter. Best.
Hi All, We had some difficulties with archiving. We had a campaign to move to archive approx 200.000 instances. It was working very slow, taking 5-6 secs per instance. After some investigation, we found out, we can speed it up with an additional index on WFElementTasks. After creating the index - CREATE NONCLUSTERED INDEX IX_WFELementTasks_Finished ON dbo.WFELementTasks (WFT_WFHIDTaskFinished)- it takes less than 0,3 sec per instance. Dear Webcon team, please Include this additional in (...)
Dear All, In BPS 2021 with modern layout we miss functionality to copy an attached file to clipboard. There is feature for preview, download, but no copy. Earlier - with sharepoint - we used activex component, copy to clipboard worked fine. It would be really nice to get a copy feature. Or do you have any idea how to make it work? Thank you! Peter
Hello everybody, we are working on a prototype to document defects. Therefore, we would like to use a new kind of form field: It should act as an image field to upload an image, but then act as a handwritten signature form field to mark something on the image. We tried that with the existing elements and it worked in a way. But the image scaling isn't really good, we couldn't change the pencil color and so on. So as a suggestion: Please combine these two form fields to create a pimped (...)
Designing Word-Templates is quite straight forward. However to check to look of the final document you have to run the action somewhere in the process. So this can be quite time consuming. Having a preview functionality would add a great value to WEBCON BPS. As we already have the option to load the form values from a workflow instance, the next step would be hitting the preview button to have a look at the filled template in a new document. Like it is being done in Word when using the mail (...)
There all always questions whether we can change the menu of an application or not. It would be great having a Customnavigtion node under the presentation node. We should be able to create two level menus with an icon and whether the link should open in same tab or a new one.
Hi, I haven't realized before that the REST Api doesn't contain any information about the database column. I agree in most cases this is of no use and would only create unnecessary traffic. There's one use case though were one needs it. When you read the metadata information so that you can provide a configuration option in another system to start a workflow using the URL parameters: ...?com_id=1&AttText1=Value1&AttText4=Value2 In this case we need to know the database column names of (...)
Hi, I'm sure the „additional navigation link“ is used in different ways. In our case, we reference an information portal. But if the user want to use this sites, he/she/it will lost the webcon form... Suggestion: 1. Add a checkbox for html-attribute „target“ to set target="_blank | _self" 2. Add a textbox to set the html-attribute „title“ -> the title-Attribute is important for screenreader and a barrier-free design. What is the „additional navigation link“: https://community.webco (...)
Dear Webcon Community, as you probably know, dark mode is very popular in most modern applications. It has many benefits, but the most important is that looking at the screen for 8 hours is less exhausting for our eyes if we use dark mode. I really hope we can add this to WEBCON BPS Designer Studio :)
