Digital stamps - Easy approval and rejection

It's hard to beat the satisfying 'thump' a stamp makes on paper when you approve or reject a document, but when you move to a digital process you still need to visually indicate the approval or rejection of a document, even if you no longer have a physical piece of paper to stamp.

Our recent 20.2.0 release of AutoVue includes a number of capabilities that make it easy to incorporate digital stamps into your digital document management processes, whether it's to add an approval or rejection of the document at the end of the process, or to track the status throughout the document's lifecycle.

Our new stamp designer makes it easy to create stamps that closely match traditional ink stamps, and that incorporate data from external document management systems - project/case #s, status, approval dates, etc.  The stamps can be designed to have a specific physical size, and can include any required images or graphics, making it easy to ensure compliance with the appropriate legislation and regulations.

If the designer chooses, the stamp can be set up to allow modification of some of all fields, so users can change attribute values in their enterprise systems - allowing someone to approve or reject a document directly while reviewing the document and it's associated changes.

Stamps can also be created programmatically, so when AutoVue is integrated into a document or case management system it is easy to automate the stamping process - allowing people to automatically stamp all of the documents associated with a particular case, project, or submittal in a single operation.

About the only thing our stamping solution doesn't give you is that satisfying 'thump'.   Maybe in our next release!

Understanding Oracle’s Bug Status Codes for AutoVue

I’ve seen a few questions in recent months regarding the various status codes that Oracle uses to indicate the current status of bugs logged in the My Oracle Support (MOS) system. The status code of a given bug can be seen by opening the bug report in MOS and looking for the ‘Status’ field (which is at the top-left of the report):

Yes, there are a LOT of bug status codes used at Oracle (more than 50 of them), and different product groups at Oracle may use the codes in slightly different ways.

The good news is that the AutoVue group uses a relatively small subset of these status codes, and for the most part uses them in the same way as other Oracle groups. Our Support team outlines this – including details of our one “special-use” status code (status 16) – in the following KM Note:

Note 790873.1 - Oracle Bug Status Codes for AutoVue Product Family

For those of you tracking the status of any bugs for your AutoVue/VueLink/DPS products, make sure to read through the KM Note so that you’re familiar with the status code flow and can easily tell where a particular bug is in its fix lifecycle.
