ActiveDocs Limited today announced the latest updates to its ActiveDocs Opus (Raptor release) Document Automation and Template Management solution.
Document Sets, long supported by ActiveDocs and now being seen as the must-have capability in document automation, have been enhanced with Dynamic Attachments. The new feature allows files in most common formats to be selected dynamically, or pre-set according to business rules, for inclusion in Document Sets, together with the Word, PDF, and ODF documents generated within the solution. Advanced Email Delivery extends the Document Set feature by enabling the generation and delivery of richly formatted emails with multiple attachments and the option of merging attachments.
Excel Automation extends ActiveDocs Designer and ActiveDocs Document Assembly into the creation of Excel templates and Excel documents respectively. The feature has been carefully architected to blend with the product’s existing design, assembly, and delivery capabilities. Glenn Cameron, ActiveDocs VP Product Development, noted
“adding Excel to the product is evolutionary rather than revolutionary, building on the product’s maturity in Template Design and Management, and in assembly and delivery. As such it enables existing Designers and solution architects to easily expand the scope and business value of their implementations of ActiveDocs Opus without imposing onerous demands for retraining or re-architecting.”
In the User-Driven mode, use and design have been enhanced with support for dynamic question groups and dynamic conditional locking and validation.
Designers have been further supported with the option to disconnect data sources during design, and to manage collections of data source linkages more efficiently with a new dedicated Connection Manager tool.
For system administrators, capabilities such as mixed-mode use of multiple security models together with industry-standard support for Single Sign-on provide enhanced options for security management.
Customization and integration capabilities have been extended with the expansion of the Custom Actions facility to allow unlimited Custom Actions and the replacement of existing actions with Custom Actions. New Delivery options provide compatibility with EML files and asynchronous Web Services.
Finally, a dedicated connector for electronic signatures using DocuSign™ has been added to the product. ActiveDocs Product Manager Martin Srubar commented
“the product has always been designed for easy integration with other applications including e-signature, and that capability will remain as a cornerstone of the product as we respond to customer demand for specific connectors and other integration features.” Additional connectors are in the pipeline.
