Like its predecessors for the Oracle, SAP and PeopleSoft platforms, GL Wand links directly to enterprise resource planning system data from an Excel interface. Likewise, Budget Wand aids in budget compilation with Excel-based models that directly upload to FinancialForce and can be annually reused.

DocuWare upgrades information management forms
DocuWare, which makes online forms that combine with digital workflow, have upgraded its information management forms. Updates include:
- Display additional or fewer fields conditional to the user’s input. For example, selecting “other” in a list of options will display an open text field for the user to provide explanation.
- Format surrounding text with a WYSIWYG editor to add clarity to instructions and other contextual detail.
- Link to additional information, such as data privacy or general terms and conditions, and incorporate it into forms.
- Guide users to correct information formatting with input masks. This is helpful for structured data fields like email addresses and phone numbers. Field masks are paired with a validation service that automatically checks a field’s input and compares it with external data sources.
