Feng Office 2 / Google Calendar Sync
« on: March 30, 2012, 03:53:50 pm »

I wish to sync all events from FO 2 calendar to my gmail calendar. However, when I enter my credentials and save changes it gives me two pop-up notifications:
1. Information: Check your account
2. Success: Gmail account properly modified

When I go back to the calendar view and hit the Sync button, I'm taken back to the screen where I'm required to enter my credentials again with a pop-up saying "Information: Check your account".

What am I doing wrong? Please help guys... ???



Feng Office 2 / Workspace Report

I just noticed that producing reports on workspaces is no longer available in FO 2. Will it be made available in future releases?



Feng Office 2 / How to Add a Tag to Multiple Documents
« on: March 17, 2012, 02:31:32 pm »

I am testing FO 2.0 RC.

I cannot figure out how to tag multiple documents simultaneously, like in FO 1.7.5. In previous versions of FO, all I had to do was select multiple documents and click on the tag button to apply the same tag to multiple documents in one go. However, I can't seem to do this in the current version of FO.

Is this not possible to do this in this version or is it planned to be implemented if not yet implemented.

Best Regards



I have setup an email account in Feng Office, over IMAP to my mail server (gmail).

I would like to know if it is possible that, when I delete an email in Feng Office, it is deleted on the mail server as well.

Thanks in anticipation!


Feature requests / Drag n Drop Document Uploads
« on: June 26, 2011, 09:56:39 am »

We love Feng Office! And as a professional organisation, we create a lot of documents everyday, i.e. word, excel, pdf, etc. Therefore, it is logical that a faster and convenient way to upload documents would be greatly appreciated, by not only us but everyone in the professional world.

We have seen a recent trend towards HTML 5 drag n drop document upload functionality, as seen in KnowledgeTree document management system and Google Docs, and something similar would greatly improve the workflow.

In essence, it would be great if users could just drag n drop documents and zip files into a workspace, to be able to upload them. Even having the functionality of drag and drop to open up the "upload file" page (which already exists) and the documents to be uploaded already selected would be great.

Another nice feature would be the ability to upload multiple documents by selecting multiple documents in the document upload dialog box, instead of zipping the documents before every bulk upload. Again, this can be seen in action in Google Docs.

I congratulate Feng Office team for such a great product, and see a bright future ahead.

Best Regards

How To's / File/Document Name - Maximum number of Characters?
« on: April 15, 2011, 01:43:42 pm »

I just noticed that FO truncates filenames with more than 100 characters (roughly).

How do I go about increasing this limit from 100 to say 200, as we have larger filenames in our organisation.

I am a coder so any pointers into the source code would be appreciated if the need be.

Best Regards


How To's / General Timeslots vs Task Timeslots
« on: March 02, 2011, 12:40:49 am »

I have been playing around with timeslots for a while, and think that it is a really powerful feature. I understand that General Timeslots are meant as timeslots for Workspaces and Task Timeslots are meant for tasks. However, I can't seem to understand the advantages of General Timeslots (in the Time tab) over the Task Timeslots and vice-versa.

It would be great if someone with experience in using the two types of Timeslots could explain to me when and why to use each type of Timeslots.

Best Regards


How To's / Object Type removed when Task Recurs
« on: February 26, 2011, 11:37:25 pm »

It's me again  ;D

I created a recurring task and assigned it an Object Type (subtype). However, when the task is marked complete, and the task recurs, only the NEWLY created task which recurred has the Object Type assigned to it, the original completed tasks no longer have any Object Type assigned to them (i.e. they become unclassified). This is easier to visualise when tasks are grouped by Object Type.

I think this destroys the whole purpose of Task Object Subtypes, since recurring tasks don't seem to KEEP the Object subtype.

Is it a bug or it's meant to be like this?



How To's / Empty Date Fields Possible?
« on: February 26, 2011, 12:19:24 pm »

I created some custom date fields for contacts/companies (e.g. date client's business started/ended). Now, obviously, sometimes we don't know a particular client's business start date or the business has not ended yet. So, we would like to "not" specify any date for specific clients. However, when nothing is entered in the date fields, and the contact/company data saved, the field saves the date automatically as today's date, which is wrong really. We would like to "not" have any date when "not" specified.

Is this possible somehow, or should I revert back to text fields for the desired result (which destroys the purpose of the beautiful date widget really).

Best Regards


How To's / Searching Contact Metadata
« on: February 17, 2011, 12:40:09 am »

I created a contact and added some notes inside. However, I couldn't get FO to search and find the notes I added inside the contact. It, however, does find seperate notes from the Notes module when searched (but not notes inside a contact).

I also made some custom fields inside contacts - tables. I use table custom field in order to add bank account details of clients. However, FO again doesn't seem to return any search results from this table custom field.

I have tried to change Search Engine to "Full" but that doesn't help either.

Am I missing something or this is how FO works?



How To's / Cannot View/Edit/Add Tasks anymore!
« on: January 23, 2011, 12:34:32 pm »

After a few hours of testing possibilities of tasks, the tasks have suddenly stopped working with the following message: "We are sorry, but Feng Office is not currently able to execute your request. An Error Report has been sent to the administrator."

Please note that the error only shows for my current user (admin) and tasks work fine for other users.

I have tried deleting browser cookies, cache files, copying installation files again but to no avail.

How to reproduce the error:
The error occurred after I was trying to filter tasks. I chose to filter using object type (subtask) but didn't select any subtask type from the next dropdown list. Then I chose status as Pending, and the error occurred.

The error only occurred only for the user who performed filtering as mentioned above. For the rest, tasks kept working. However, I was able to reproduce the error for other users as well after performing the filtering.

Error Log:

I think that my particular way of filtering is producing illegal mysql output. But there must be a way to reset or clear the filter back to the original "unfiltered" state.

One solution could be recreating the user but its not the best or convenient solution IMHO.

Any help is greatly appreciated!


How To's / Archiving Workspaces?
« on: January 23, 2011, 09:17:51 am »
Hi all!

Is there a way to "archive" a complete workspace? We have encountered the following situation that needs workspace archiving:

We have created individual workspaces for each individual client (this seemed like a natural transition coming from folder analogy). If a client no longer exists and we want to archive everything related to this client (i.e. client's workspace), how do we go about achieving this?

Please note that we have just been testing feng office for a few days, so any suggestions would be appreciated to achieve similar tasks, i.e. having logical storage blocks for individual clients and be able to archive a client's stuff if needed.

Best Regards
