  1. Ability to create a DDP on an external object

    Currently, DocGen cannot pull data directly from an external object (i.e., odata) and would require additional steps to do this. Also there is no documentation on the additional steps.

    Would you consider providing a documentation on the additional steps and developing this feature?

    Thanks.

  2. Allow prioritization of automated DDPs

    When documents are requested via Workflow and Outbound Message, they are queued up on the servers in the order that the messages are sent (FIFO).

    Where some of the requested documents are more time sensitive than others, it would be great to be able to flag to the OB Message so that the server would identify that request as high priority and generate it before the other (not high priority) documents in the queue.

    A possible deliverable could be a second parallel Queue whose documents would always generate before any in the main queue allowing for FIFO on the high…

  3. Allow calculations in form fields.

    It would be useful to have calculations performed by Drawloop from data input into form fields, without the need for using Excel as Middleware. This would expand the form capabilities and simplify the process. For example, if you have a contract price and you need a 10% deposit, the form should be able to calculate the deposit field from the contract price and % entered.

  4. Create ability to run Insert-Updates and compile documents in an order selected by the author.

    I have a case where I need to:
    1. Compile a document
    2. Create a case object
    3. Compile a final document with a link to the case that was created.

    This is not possible today because the system automatically compiles both documents first and then creates the case. So the final document that should link to the case that was created instead links to the last case that was created on an account. Please update Drawloop to allow us to set the order that items are compiled.

  5. Ability to include pulling feed attachments from multiple objects

    When creating a DDP, we need files across multiple objects to be combined and rendered as distinct pages in a consolidated document. This has been confirmed as a known issue.

  6. Drawloop doesn't differentiate between Custom fields and standard field names

    Tried to set up a letter template and I wanted to use the contact's title (e.g. Mr) in the template, however the Drawloop Tag is identical to another Label and it’s therefore pulling back “Dear Monty” instead.

    Label Tag Value

    Salutation / Greeting <<ContactSalutation>> Dear Monty
    Title <<Contact
    Salutation>> Mr

    I’ve spoken to our developers who have said “The standard Salesforce field’s API name is “Contact.Salutation”. Our custom field’s API name is “Contact.Salutationc”. For some reason, the Drawlook field tagger doesn’t distinguish between standard and custom field names; it doesn’t observe the ‘c’ appendix.

  7. Update Existing Content

    I'm currently using 'Salesforce Files' which creates a content record for the DDP. Salesforce supports content versioning making it easy for users to 'attach a new version' however this isn't supported in Drawloop.

    It would be next level, if you could give us options to insert a new file, but if it exists, update the content. This would give us one static URL to the content and make navigating our Notes & Attachments sections much easier!

  8. More Flexible Expiration Options for DDPs

    There should be more flexibility in assigning expiration dates to individual DDPs. Right now, you can only specify the number of days until expiration. What if we could choose a specific day of the month the package would expire on? What if we could specify document expiration on the first day of each month or the last day of each month? I think this would be incredibly helpful to a lot of users.

  9. Add sum row as merge fields when using Report as data source.

    Currently, using Reports as a data source only allows you to pull in a tabular column of data (further calculation requires using Excel as middleware). I would like to see the summary row at the bottom of a tabular report be made available as a series of merge fields as well. For example, the current syntax for a report column is <<AnyRangecol1>>; the sum for that column could be <<AnyRangecolsum>>.

  11. Feature Request: Create Relationship from existing Relationships

    Currently, you can create relationships based on the same object by using aliases, but if one is a direct subset of another, you must create it with redundant filters and poll the database for a whole new query. Instead, it would be useful to create relationships based on ones that are already created. This would avoid redundant filters and potentially improve performance.

    Example of current functionality:
    Alias 1: Pull Accounts matching filters A and B from entire database.
    Alias 2: Pull Accounts matching filters A and C from entire database.

    Example of desired functionality:
    Alias 1: Pull Accounts matching filters…

  12. Reduce the size of width from a Picture attached as optional to a document.

    When you add an optional picture attachment chosen from the record attachments it would be nice the picture will be resized to the page-width of the document. When you have now a picture attached separately (Optional) and the width is much bigger than the width of the document you can hardly read the output of the document created by the DDP.

  13. Dynamic dates field tags

    It would be great idea to have more options than Now, Today and Tomorrow for date field tags. For example a Today + 14 days field tag would enable the document to not always have to be updated with a future date at every instance of ddp generation

  15. There should be some mechanism to automate the migration of word template changes from one org to the next.

    Currently, ddp's can only be migrated in an automated fashion once. After that any changes made in the word templates in a ddp have to be made manually in all orgs. This should be automated. The word templates should migrate to qa, staging and to prod (rather than making the changes manually in each template in each org).

  16. Time field on DDP should have helptext indicating it's the user's local time, even though it may have been created in another time zone

    User A is in PST, creates a DDP to run at 8am. DDP runs at 8am PST.
    User B is IST (~12 hour difference), saves DDP, deactivates, reactivates while not touching the TIme field. DDP then goes out at 8am IST, which is about 8pm the previous day.
    User A still sees 8am for the Time field

    There needs to be some help text on the Time field that describes this behavior, as the rest of SFDC doesnt work this way. Perhaps save and display the TIme Zone when editing a DDP?

  18. Make the field tagger work with a linked account

    We have a custom object which is linked to another custom object, which is then either linked to a contact or an account. When I use the field tagger search function to find an instance of the custom object that is attached to a contact then the field tagger displays the values of the fields for that contact. When I use an object that is attached to an account it doesn't display those fields. I was told that this isn't a bug, but I should submit a suggestion, so here it is!

  19. Adobe Sign Delivery option: Ability to set 'Days till Signing Expires' field dynamically

    Currently the 'Days till Signing Expires' field on the Adobe Sign Delivery option accepts only numerical values which are constants. It should be possible to use the field tagger to reference any field as a value for the same which will allow the users to have dynamic Expiry dates defined for the echosign agreements.

  20. Table replication with page break

    In case of table replications, sometimes it is required to start the new table on a next page rather then continuing just after the end of previous table. This makes the content cleaner and more presentable on the final output document. This should be made possible via an optional configuration.
