Feature requests / Auto unlocking a document
« on: March 12, 2018, 11:39:14 PM »
Now you have the option to lock a document automatically when someone edits it, but it doesn't unlock automatically.  So for example, if the user forgot to unlock it, it will need an administrator to unlock the file manually, which happens to me a number of times.

There are a few points you can place this feature.
1. When the user clicks on the "close" button, the file should be unlocked, it isn't user friendly to have the user to find the "unlock" link on the right side, and be asked to unlock every file after they "close" it.  The "close" is supposed to have same meaning of finishing editing, so it should be the right place.
2. When the user logs out, or timeout from connection.  Yes, when they logout, is it necessary to still "lock" the file?  Obviously not.

中文 / Incomplete translations
« on: February 26, 2018, 07:14:19 AM »

I just finished translation of zh_tw from CE, the original one is horrible and confusing.
But from the dashboard screen, it seems there are some elements not included in the files I translated. (picture attached)

There were 12 files in the original zh-tw folder:
- actions.php
- administration.php
- calendar.php
- countries.php
- emails.php
- errors.php
- general.php
- messages.php
- objects.php
- project_interface.php
- site_interface.php
- timezones.php

I also copied these files from en_us folder and translated them.
- fields.php
- help.php
- more.php
- reporting.php
- upgrade.php

Is there any other files I missed?  Thank you.

How To's / Re: Recurring event

I recall there is a setting about "recurring events as separate events", or something similar, have you tried changing this?

How To's / Re: Select workspace at login
« on: February 14, 2018, 06:06:24 AM »
Yes I agree there is too little help for CE version, even in the forum there are too few issues solved.

Same problem here, but I won't be able to upload to "View All" (from an "External Collaborator" account).  I was prompted to select a workspace to store the file.

You can double check your workspace permissions, and try with different roles.

You can also remind your users to always select a workspace for your work.

I was an EE user and now I switched to CE version as our support expired.

In our office things are weird, some projects are shared while other are not, some users wish to have control of their own contacts and not wish to share with others, even if they work for the same client.  (i.e. yours are mine but mine are mine)

So I used workspace for the main dimension, each user have their own workspace.  For shared projects they can establish a child workspace, and assign resources to share with others, as you can set different permissions on a child workspace.

For contacts, you need to establish offline rules that "Company" should not assign with any workspace, but users can have the contact stored in their workspace.  This is to avoid duplicates.

For example, John Doe in ABC company.  ABC company should be filed without workspace, then create John Doe as a contact, and assign it with your own workspace, if you wish to keep him private.

Tags in CE is not convenient, not like those we used in social media, so I wouldn't bother with it.
You may also use Project as another dimension, I prefer keeping things simple, user's don't like things complicated.

Feng Office 3 / Re: Google Calendar sync never worked.
« on: February 14, 2018, 12:38:10 AM »
I can sync with my Google calendar, but it only supports the main calendar, not subscribed ones such as a group calendar  :(

This usually happens when you typed the wrong DB settings during setup.
Re-run the setup with correct settings in the first place, did the trick for me.

Feng Office 3 / Re: Feng Office 3 email notification doesn't work

By default, the task creator will not receive a copy of the notification, unless you configured to do so in your settings page.

Feng Office 3 / Incompatible vcard importing
« on: June 01, 2017, 02:37:07 AM »
I used "Office Lens" from my Android phone to scan a business card and saved with MS OneNote.  From OneNote I saved the VCF file on my desktop computer, which can be read by MS Outlook.

Then I import this VCF into FO
Contacts -> Import/Export -> Person -> Import -> From Vcard

And I get the error:   - A contact must be identified by at least a first or last name

Is this feature broken already?

Feng Office 3 / Cannot report bugs with Mantis system
« on: June 01, 2017, 02:26:03 AM »
When creating a new account, the captcha image is broken.

And you cannot report anonymously.

So the bug reporting system is useless.

Feng Office 3 / Context menu and spellcheck conflict
« on: March 06, 2017, 01:54:55 AM »
I tried to report through your Mantis system but I never received any registration confirmation emails, and it will not allow to login anonymously.

FO Community edition

When editing in a text field and some spelling mistakes were found by the browser (e.g. Chrome), user cannot right click on the wrong word to correct the spelling mistake because a FO context menu will pop up and ask if the user wants to copy or cut the selected word.

The problem can be repeated anytime.

Expected result:
The FO context menu should not appear, because the user is not selecting the whole word, he just right click on the word.  Alternatively, FO can have a built-in spell checker

Feature requests / Browser notification
« on: February 28, 2017, 11:41:18 PM »
Please implement browser notification to the system.
Even though there is already email notification, but for example when new email arrives, the current notification message is too small and not eye catching.
It can work together with email notification and the system notification message, users can choose what to be notified.

Thank you and looking forward to the new features.
