  1. Make Conditional Formatting Rule Manager more user friendly.

    Dear Windward,

    Is it possible to make the option to define a condition on a tag more user friendly.

    A way to create a condition with a Condition Wizard (that let you select and compare nodes/variables/..) would be very helpfull.

    To select a color in the Format wizard, a color picker would also be very helpfull instead of entering hex values manually.

    Kind Regards Jochen

    Hello Reporter,

    This idea has been partially accepted. We have accepted to enable users to open the Condition Wizard from inside the Conditional Formatting Rule Manager. As for the color picker, I have entered a story in our backlog, but we will wait to see interest in this specifically before reviewing the idea again. I entered this new ticket for the color picker, please leave a vote on it if you are still interested: http://ideas.windwardstudios.com/forums/248503-windward-beta-program/suggestions/39340099-add-color-picker-to-conditional-formatting-rule-ma

    Thank you for your suggestion, and please submit any other ideas you have to improve the product.

  2. Table of Contents /t field code not performing as expected - Feature

    /t seems to be broken when it is used in Table of Contents. When generating a doc output, the TOC ignores the /t and includes all of the headings/styles in the document. Updating the TOC in the output fixes it, which means something is occurring in the generation of the output.

    In addition, when multiple unique TOC's are in a document, all of the TOC's will break if only ONE TOC has the /t field.

    Deleting /t and only using /o is the current mediocre workaround. But it would be great if /t could work so we could use our…

  4. Windward Community

    Hi,

    I would be interested to exchange knowledge with other Windward users, see what they do and show what we do.

    Would be great if Windward could facilitate this :)

  5. Output of Excel column auto-filters set in template

    Given that your report generator effectively generates rows of data (in Excel format), it would make sense that the ability to setup auto-filters and have them show up in the output be there as well.

    As it is now, all our customers who use the output generated from our templates have to manually go into each tab and turn on the column filters, as the filters we have setup in the templates to not make it to the output.

  6. Add class HTML attribute to all HTML tags.

    The documentation at https://ohana.windwardstudios.com/m/76878/l/899627-html-and-css-tags-and-attributes-supported-by-out-tags notes that the class html attribute is only valid for the p tag. I would request that the class attribute be valid for all supported tags. This would allow me to provide easier default styling to all tags instead of having to ensure all tags of a type have a default set of style attributes.

  7. Preserve page number formatting across different sections in Word (AutoTag)

    Currently in Autotag 12.5.37, when there are different sections in a Word Document that utilize different page number formats (e.g. i/ii/iii/iv/... and 1/2/3/4/...) and a document is generated from a data source, the formatting in the template does not come through and all page numbers default to the 1/2/3/4/... format, resulting in confusion for the reader.

    Allowing for this capability will make it easier for Autotag users to maintain a more refined template where readers can more easily identify the section that they are reading and reduces rework for Autotag users.

    Thanks!

  8. Improve Import tag handling of bad/missing data

    Currently, if the Import tag is passed bad data (e.g. an image file doesn't exist or is an unsupported format), the only apparent way to prevent the report from breaking altogether is to set a default image. But what if we don't want a default image and just want the tag to be ignored if it doesn't like the data? Or what if the default image to be shown is also data-dependent?

    I suggest two improvements:

    1. That instead of displaying a default image, the tag could optionally be ignored altogether. In many cases, it would be preferable to have no…

  9. Escape key to exit the Edit Tag window

    Would be great if we can exit the Edit Tag window by pressing ESC key.
    Minor improvement - agree - but can be frustrating as it is part of basic standard usability.

  10. Support Unix Time

    Support Unix Time and be able to format that as a date or datetime

    Perhaps a new macro could do this for us.

  13. Ability to view number of pages rendered by environment

    A way to identify the number of pages are executed per environment to determine if we are nearing to allowed license and get alerts to make a decision on increasing the Max Allow usage/Over usage without any disruption to client functionality. Additionally this feature helps in identifying if there is any unwarranted executions happening on a specific environment.
