ECS Monthly Tips & Tricks
Getting Information from Multiple Applications Using Laserfiche Connector
Laserfiche Connector lets you get information from applications, and use that information to perform an action. This is how you can get information from more than once application with Laserfiche Connector.
> On the Get Information page of the Profile Creation Wizard define the first application you want to get information from by clicking Add Source Application and dragging the Target to the application.
> Then, specify how it will be analyzed and what pages Connector can get information from. Click Save.
> Define the information you want to get from this application.
> To get information from an additional application, click Add Application.
> Drag the Target to the new application or website, specify how you want the page to be analyzed, and which pages you want to get information from.
> Under Application Details, configure how you want the information retrieved. (Connector can try to retrieve the information automatically, without any user input. Or it can provide a Continue button for users to click when they are ready to retrieve information from this application. (You can provide custom instructions for users to tell them how to advance the process). NOTE: It is recommended to provide user instructions in case the target application is unavailable and needs to default to the user manually advancing the process. Additionally, you can configure Laserfiche Connector to automatically open the application or web page if the user does not already have it open.
> Click Save, and then define the controls you want to retrieve values from. You can continue to add applications, edit added applications, or delete applications as needed.
> You can access the information from these applications from the token button in the rest of the Wizard.
