The ActiveDocs Opus Document Wizard works automatically with any ActiveDocs Opus Template or Template Set, assisting the end user through an interview-style process to acquire the Answer data required for the document.
Using the ActiveDocs Opus Design Tools, the Template Designer chooses how to organise the ActiveDocs Intelligence in the Template, by grouping and ordering to provide a coherent experience for the end user. The Document Wizard follows the Designer's group and order structure, provides the required access to external data sources, and enables other functionality such as date picking, Image acquisition and the Free Text Editor.
The grouping and ordering of ActiveDocs Intelligence in the Template is rendered automatically by the Document Wizard. Field typing, validation, and default value calculations are under the Designer's control.
Designers are not required to develop the end user interface of the Template.
Designers use the Document Wizard to test Templates directly from Content Manager, ensuring that Designers share the end user experience of the Template.
The Document Wizard allows end users to start with new Answers or re-use previous Answers, a permissions-based feature. Hints, tips, and instructions specified by the Designer are rendered clearly, with any validation errors clearly explained. Mandatory and optional fields are clearly differentiated.
The Document Wizard provides a navigation pane to enable the end user to move the focus between the field groups.
Regardless of the screen sizes you use – desktop computers, tablets or cell phones – the Document Wizard interface will adapt to your device thanks to the responsive web design technology.
The Document Wizard is invoked automatically when an end user clicks on a Template or Template Set name in the ActiveDocs Opus Express Wizard.
The ActiveDocs Opus Solutions Studio Module enables the Document Wizard to be invoked from other applications, with the option of using predetermined Answer data. As an example, the Document Wizard could be invoked from a CRM application, using a Customer Letter Template with some Answers preset using Customer information from the CRM.
Centralizing systems in a multi-language environment can be a challenge and not all businesses have the same requirements.
ActiveDocs Opus provides the ability to both automate documents in different languages and to design templates in the language of choice.
This capability significantly enhances the ability of global companies to control critical content and ensure that corporate documents can be created in the language of choice for customers or employees.
