Example : Using AnyDocForm

Why AnyDocForm
Every Notes/Domino designer and administrator have to face issues due to malformed documents, or documents in a state that cannot be undone or corrected through the document form (if any).

Consequences are much or less important.
  1. At development time, this can lead to create a new document from scratch and replay a complete workflow process.
  2. For a running application, a wrong field can prevent from opening a document.
  3. An item containing a text value instead of a number in a single document can prevent computing of all view totals.
AnyDocForm has been designed to face this kind of problem. It allows viewing and editing of any text, number and date item of any document, without using the form (if any). More, with AnyDocForm, you can change the data type of an item (text to number ..), add and delete items.

Bypassing all the controls that can be associated with the form logic, AnyDocForm is not intended to be used by simple Notes users, but rather by designers and administrators.

Features
The choice of the document to edit is made by selecting it from any view or folder in a database, and using an agent triggered through the Actions menu.

Some design element (4 elements) have to be deployed in every database where you plan to use AnyDocForm. The tool includes a deployment process that makes this step easy to achieve (and undo).

All databases are different in term of access, so you can define for each database, what access level is needed to use AnyDocForm, and more, what minimal level is required to edit, add and delete items.

AnyDocForm is distributed as a shareware. In the evaluation version, you can edit only the first five items (in alphabetical order) of a document, and item deletion is not possible. A key mailed to you at the end of the purchase process allows unlocking of all functions.

AnyDocForm can be used with Notes/Domino 5 and 6, in english or french.
