Configuring email notifications for the Managed Review & Approval Solution Accelerator

The Adobe Managed & Approval Solution Accelerator 9.5 is a wonderful solution for automating reviews for documents in your organization. One of the handy features  of the solution is email updates for automated reviews. For example, emails are automatically sent for these scenarios:

  • When a reviewer completes a review or review stage.
  • When an approver approves a document.
  • When reviewers or approvers are added to or removed from a review.
  • When a review or review stage completes.

This requirement is necessary for organizations that have regulated review and approval workflows. However, in non-regulated environments, this requirement may be a distraction to users because of the number of emails  that can be sent in reviews that involve significant number of people.

Alexandra Phillips has provided an article to describe how to configure  the emails that are sent using the Solution Template provided with the Managed Review & Approval Solution Accelerator. Check out the article here.

Customizing LiveCycle Workspace 9.x using Flash Builder 4.x

When Customizing the LiveCycle Workspace ES2 User Interface [link] guide was released, it was before Adobe Flash Builder was available for us to do our certification testing. Technically, it is possible to use Flash Builder provided you use the Flex SDK version 3.4.1, ant-contrib.jar file version 1.0b2, and Ant-plug-in as described in the guide. For more information, see the LiveCycle Product blog for steps in the posting Customize LC Workspace ES2 UI using FB4 Premium on 64-bit O/S

In a future release, we plan to complete certification testing and update the guide with updated instructions, but in the meantime, here are some instructions for you to configure your environment to build Workspace customizations using Flash Builder 4. You must complete the last step in the blog when your development environment is a 64-bit operating system.

Happy customizing!

LiveCycle Workbench 9.5 now using the Adobe Community Help Client

New for LiveCycle Workbench 9.5 is the ability to provide you with the latest help dynamically in a manner similar to Adobe Flash Builder Help, which many of you already know and love! How? The Adobe Community Help Client (CHC), that’s how! The CHC is an AIR-based application that replaces the Eclipse Help engine for Workbench and is the platform for the next generation of Adobe Help delivery. CHC features include the following features:

  • Search-centricity : Uses Community Help search, adobe.com search, or local search. Community Help search aggregates resources, including those from 3rd party sites. The adobe.com search includes refinements to narrow your scope.
  • In-context navigation: Provides a dynamically generated set of related links for key pages.
  • In-context commenting: Provides immediate feedback on any page and displays any recent updates.
  • Always online: If you have a network connection, the CHC accesses content from the web to ensure that you have the most up-to-date content. However, you can also work in local mode if you have no Internet connection.

Now you are probably wondering, how do you work in local mode? Well, provided you have internet access, you can download a copy of the Help so that you can access the Help if your internet connection fails or if you are temporarily working behind a restricted firewall. To download a local copy of the Help, follow these steps:

  1. Start Workbench ES2.
  2. Select Help > Adobe LiveCycle Workbench Help. The Adobe Community Help Client starts and you do not get a prompt that asks to you download the help, continue to step 4. If you do, the help is downloaded after you click update and you should have a local copy when do not have internet access.
  3. In the Adobe Community Help Client, select Edit > Preferences.
  4. In the left pane, select Download Preferences.
  5. Select LiveCycle ES2.5. The LiveCycle Workbench 9.5 Help should be selected automatically as shown in the following illustration:
  6. In the left pane, select Local Content, select LiveCycle Workbench 9.5 Help, and click Update. After the update, your window should look like the following illustration:
  7. Click Done.

You now have a local copy of the Help! The next time you connect to the internet, the Help will be updated when a user selects starts the Workbench Help. If you do not have an internet connection, Workbench connects to the local copy.

Note: The PDF version is not available unless you are connected to the internet. If you want, you can save a local copy of the PDF version on your computer, when you have internet access.

Archive Migration Tool available on Adobe Labs!

Available on Adobe Labs is the prerelease of the Archive Migration Tool.  The plug-in is available for LiveCycle Workbench ES2 (version 9 and higher).  Check out the tool  here.

In a nutshell, this tool migrates archive files from the LiveCycle ES  to LiveCycle ES2 or LiveCycle ES2.5 applications.  Without this tool, it is necessary for you to manually upgrade your LiveCycle ES applications.  For more information about upgrading legacy soutions, see Upgrading legacy solutions to LiveCycle ES2.5 in the LiveCycle Workbench 9.5 Help.

Enjoy and please do not hesitate to provide feedback!
