  1. 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 :)

    Cheers,

  2. Configurable Watermark

    Add the ability to conditionally add a watermark to a word template based on an input parameter.

    Use case:
    We have an invoice we send to our customers that is a draft. We apply the wording "draft" as a watermark to the template. Once the customer has approved the invoice, we send them a final copy which is identical to the original without the word "draft" as a watermark. Currently, we have to maintain two identical templates to handle this. It would be ideal to only have one template where an input variable controls the display of the watermarked text.

  4. Use an OUT tag in a graph title

    I want to produce a series of graph for different equipment types, and put the equipment type in each graph title.
    There is a work around (put the graph title outside of the graph) which is ok for any advanced user. However, our plan is to give access to Windward Designer to a large crowd of users from our clients. These users will have limited support and training, i.e. each work around becomes a barrier. The expectation is that you should be able to put an OUT tag in the title

  6. Information Tag

    Good morning,

    I believe it would be useful to have a new tag, that does not affect the output you generate, but that can be used to store information within your document. It would only contain a free text field wherein you can type 'whatever you want'. Would be useful for a work in progress ( storing notes), but also when a document is finished, to describe the process for when another user has to do adaptations to a file. I know it is technically possible to use a set tag for this, but I would consider it less confusing…

  7. Designer Input Parameter type Boolean

    Designer supports a number of types for template variables, but not type Boolean.
    We read the types of the template variables in order to decide which interaction element to provide to the user on our application's GUI.
    For some cases a number of tick boxes shall be provide on the GUI.

  8. Converting text to a number before sorting

    Currently the only way to cast a value to an integer is through an out tag. If we have a text field that is a number we would like to convert it to numeric in the for each loop and then sort it numerically. For example if we have 01, 2, 3, 4, 05, 06 the current sort order comes out as 01, 05, 06, 2, 3, 4. We would need to convert these values to a number in the for each loop using NUMBERVALUE or CAST and then sort on these values. Currently we are only able to convert…

    Hello Reporter,

    We have reviewed your request, but had some questions. What data provider are you using? If you are using XML, this problem may be solved by using a schema.

    Thank you.

    Hello Reporter,

    Please clarify: are you talking about about support for OpenType Fonts? OpenType Fonts should already be supported in the product! Please let us know, if you are encountering an issue with OpenType Fonts, perhaps it is a bug…

    Thank you,

    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.
