Configuring work schedules and holidays

ECS Monthly Tips & Tricks

Configuring Workflow Schedules and Holidays in Laserfiche Cloud
With Work Schedules, you can define the days and times when your business is operational so your workflows run accordingly. Let’s take a look at how to create Holidays and Work Schedules in Laserfiche Cloud and then use Work Schedules in the workflows.
> Navigate to Settings, the App Picker, or Landing Page (this is where you will find your Holidays and Work Schedules)
> To add a Holiday not on the list, click New
> In the Create Holiday dialogue box, under Occurrence, select when the Holiday occurs (If it’s on a non-business day, you can push the Holiday to the day after or before the non-business day by selecting from the drop down menu under Exceptions
> Next: Create a Work Schedule
> Navigate to the Work Schedules page and click New, provide a name and select a time zone. Select the business days and times for the organization, then add Holidays.
> Click Save. The new work schedule appears on a list on the Work Schedules page (you can view it’s details on the right).
> If you have more than one work schedule, you can choose a schedule to set as the default by clicking Set Default (the flag indicates the default schedule that will be used in the Workflows).
> In the Workflow Designer, the Properties pane displays the schedules the workflows are using.

Coming Soon to Laserfiche Cloud

Laserfiche plans a number of new features and enhancements to release in Q1 2021 for Laserfiche Cloud.

> Automatically Fill PDF Forms: Save time and reduce manual data entry by using a new workflow activity that pushes information to fillable PDF form fields.
> Invoice Vendor Identification: Further maximize AP productivity and reduce manual invoice processing with expanded Smart Invoice Capture capabilities to automatically capture vendor name from any invoice format.
> Repository Search Bar Improvements: More conveniently perform searches directly from the search dropdown bar with the ability to save searches, view recent searches and set custom filters.
> Modern Form Layout Designer Enhancements: Set formulas, add URL parameters to fill fields and more with expanded support in the new form designer.
> Improved Process Promotion: Automatically update active process instances to the latest version upon import.
> File Sets: Configure a set of relevant files to request process participants to review or act on as part of a business. This is useful in processes like new account opening where a specific set of files needs to be uploaded, reviewed or signed by an applicant.
> Modern Form Layout Designer Lookup Enhancements: Additional expansion of form configuration with support to perform lookups for table and collection fields.
> Laserfiche API: Further extend your Laserfiche solution by building custom integrations with third-party enterprise apps using a set of modern RESTful web APIs with publicly accessible documentation and reference material. Check out the API Preview today.
