  1. TIFF image output format

    Our client requires an output format of TIFF. Currently they are seeking a way to convert from PDF, but ideally they would like it embedded in Windward.

  3. Maven dependencies

    On your page https://ohana.windwardstudios.com/m/79484/l/1035755-how-do-i-use-maven-to-install-windward-java-engine-in-my-application#locate-your-settings-xml-file you state that the repository should be added to your settings.xml file. This is not convenient for teams, because settings.xml is personal (not stored in e.g. Git) and sometimes contains passwords or tokens.

    Putting the repository in your project's pom.xml ensures everyone has the same repository (because this file is in Git) and prevents problems with new members.

  4. Creating dynamic columns for tables / Auto generation of tables based on the data

    Table should have fucnctionality of expanding in 2 direction. Currently, using for loops we can have dynamic rows creation. Similarly, a functionality to expand the columns based on a certain value form the source.
    In this way, we can create tables/grids dynamically, with no fixed no. of rows and columns

    Hello Reporter,

    We now have two ways you can connect to Jira from the Windward Designer:

    You can connect via the API and basic authentication:

    Or you can connect via the 3rd party CData connector: https://ohana.windwardstudios.com/m/76878/l/1256754-how-do-i-connect-to-jira-data-source-using-cdata
    Thank you for your idea, and please submit any other ideas you have to improve our products.

  6. NuGet packages for specific targets such as .Net4.5 without the overhead of unwanted dlls such as MongoDb.

    Have NuGet packages for specific targets such as .Net4.5 without the overhead of unwanted dlls such as MongoDb and the J# dlls. The namespaces can get polluted when working in Visual Studio.
    It would be nice to have the smallest footprint of DLLs required to run Winward without have to currently remove one-by-one and hope nothing breaks.

    Hello Reporter,

    I am happy to tell you that this has been completed. In the new version of Windward all of the dependencies are required. Extra dlls like MongoDB have been removed. Thank you for your suggestion, and please submit any other ideas you have to improve our products.

  7. Support HubSpot as a datasource

    We use HubSpot in our marketing along with other sources of data like Google Analytics and a SQL database. Please support Google Analytics as a datasource so that we can join these databases together in our templates.

  8. Indicate that .NET 4.5 is a requirement for AutoTag v14 installation

    The installation process for AutoTag v14 does not indicate that .NET Framework v4.5 is required. the AutoTag Add-on will appear in Word, but not function properly. Please indicate in the installation materials, as well as in the installer itself, that .NET Framework 4.5 is required.

    Hello Reporter,

    I am pleased to announce that these suggestions have been released in our 20.0.0 release. I’ve put the system requirements for the Designer at the top of our version features announcement (https://ohana.windwardstudios.com/m/89317/l/1249325-version-20-0-0-features), and the required .NET core version will now be installed with the installer if it is not already on the users system (https://ohana.windwardstudios.com/m/89317/l/1249325-version-20-0-0-features#designer-installer-will-install-net-v4-6-1-if-missing-on-machine). Thank you for your suggestion!

  9. Multiple Print

    We are trying to use the RESTful Engine to print reports (autotag templates). Currently, there is no feature to send a request for multiple copies of a job. If you need to print 3 copies of the same report, you will need to send the job 3 times. It will be great if you can command to have number of copies to print.
