Docuware What’s New Version 7.5
Integration into third-party applications – the main feature of the version
Organizations rely on their core business applications as a data source when it comes to the performance, health, and analysis of their business. These applications – from the finance human resources, legal, sales, marketing and other departments– need to be in sync with your document management system to ensure that the information is accurate, contextually useful, and reliably discoverable. DocuWare has long offered a wide range of integration options to connect systems and processes putting an end to manual data entry, frustrating searches, duplicate controls, and incomplete records. DocuWare version 7.5 contains many new powerful features that make it even easier to connect to third-party applications. This applies to both on-premises systems and DocuWare Cloud.
File cabinet notifications with webhooks
Set up notLficatLons to be sent automatically when documents are newly stored in a file cabinet or associated index entries are modLfied Other applications in the company can react to this, synchronize their data stock or – subject to the appropriate configuratLon – trigger actions and workflows The notLficatLons are based on webhooks. DocuWare sends the news from the file cabinet to a URL in the form of a request. The third-party application monitors this request and receives the message.
You can include REST web services and webhooks in your workflows in addition to SOAP. The Web services activity in Workflow Designer provides you with a new assisted structure with a sequence of steps to set up the web service call. The configuration options for SOAP remain the same as before, but they are also displayed in the optimized interface.
What's new in the Client and Desktop Apps
What's new in the Client and Desktop Apps
Filling and editing table fields is now much easier and clearer. New features have been added; the display of the table fields has been revised.
With the addition of Danish and Norwegian, the majority of the DocuWare user interface is now available in 20 languages, enabling more users to use DocuWare in their native language.
More user interface languages
When storing Outlook emails, you can now use the contents from attached PDF documents for indexing in addition to the email properties. Previously it was only possible to extract attachments in XML format.
DocuWare now also supports text recognition in the following languages: • Thai • Vietnamese • Malay • Hebrew
Simplified update of Desktop Apps
Administrator rights are no longer required to update already installed DocuWare Desktop Apps via the DocuWare Client Setup user interface. Updates can thus be run more easily and quickly by users themselves on their client machines. Administrator rights are still required for the reinstallation of Desktop Apps, for updates via the Client Setup CMD, and for terminal server environments.
More power in automatic document processing
When storing Outlook emails, you can now use the contents from attached PDF documents for indexing in addition to the email properties. Previously it was only possible to extract attachments in XML format
What's New in Configuration
Automatically log out of DocuWare
In case of inactivity, a user can be automatically logged out of DocuWare Client and DocuWare Configuration If no input is made within a certain time, the user first receives a notification with an appropriate message before being logged out and redirected to the login window
Define your own refresh interval for lists
Set an interval for automatic updating of lists. The shortest interval is one second, the longest is ten minutes. This applies to lists configured in the File Cabinet area and to saved searches. For predefined lists, it was previously only possible to generally enable or disable updating. For saved searches, the automatic update was always enabled and also not configurable.
Progress of the fulltext reset always in view
For file cabinets with thousands of documents, a fulltext reset can take a long time. In order to estimate when the fulltext search will be available again, the status of the reset process is now displayed in two stages under the options for the relevant file cabinet
Use more LDAP attributes as user names
DocuWare supports three additional LDAP attributes with CN (common name), display name, and name. These can be selected to display the user name when importing users from Microsoft Active Directory.
Configuring Web Services with REST
In addition to SOAP web services, you can now use REST web services to connect DocuWare to third-party applications. Alongside basic authentication, Oauth2 is also available as an authentication method for REST
Modified system requirements
Compared to DocuWare version 7.4, the system requirements for client machines have changed as follows: • Windows Server 2012 is no longer supported.
