I have an email server Mail Deamon from Alt-N and once in a while (quite often) my users receives email where the attachment is trucken. Let say the initial pdf was 10mb and my user receives an almost empty pdf of juste a couple of bytes.
I am an Exchange admin and don't know much about Deamon: so where would I start?
We need to start digitizing some of our paper processes.

Basically, we'd like to print invoices and pack slips to PDF (or scan them), while automatically renaming the files based on PO number and/or order number (based on OCR?). Bonus if they automatically print after saving the PDF copy.

What can do this? Or is this even possible??

Thanks in advance!
In need suggestions on a tool or a way to import PDF Files into our database thru the UI.  I need to be able to show this data in a View and report on it, export to PDF or Excel.
The problem we have is the creator of the PDF Form does not have the form fields named in any consistent way for me to map them to our database fields.  

Any suggestions welcome!

I have an issue with all the Fillable PDF Forms, if I log in through terminal server into my shared Drives (we use Terminal servers for offsite users) and open any Fillable PDF Forms the fields are all blank but if I go directly to those forms on the share drive while I'm on the network without using TS all the forms are filled, the form were created on computers with Windows as an operating system (not a MAC), Both the Adobe Acrobat reader on the local machines and the terminal server are (Adobe Acrobat Reader DC) Version 2018.011.22.8, both have identical Adobe reader settings so I'm not sure what is causing the issue
I want a local based office documents management system, I don't mind on a local nas server or something like that. We have a lot of sales employees who get a take invoices and receipts. and it just keeps piling up. I think a paperless office is the way office. scan it, shred it, search and use it anytime.

some features I can find online:

1. Approval Workflow

An invoice, a vacation application or another document needs to be approved by one or several people before next steps?

2. Sharing

Share documents, folders, sections or even the whole account to anyone you like. With "View" permissions they can only see the document; with "Edit" they can also edit the meta data.

3. Notifications

Set and get automatic notifications for changes in documents, folders or sections as often as you choose.

4. File versions

You can upload a new version of a document and preserve the existing metadata and all earlier versions of the file

5. Reminders

Whenever you need a notification at a certain date and time, just set up a reminder!

6. Powerful search

We have built in a powerful search so you can search documents not only by the file name but also document's title and metadata,

Hello, Adobe experts, I am in midst of document mapping and I want to populate one of the text fields with a default value. Is this possible? Please let me know. Thanks in advance.
Hi all,

I've spent the last week googling about open source document management systems to try to work out which one to settle on for a documents business. Users of the system require documentation from clients and the other service providers … I've read a little of Alfresco, nuxeo and and logicaldoc and am trying to work out which one is best to base thing on so any advice  on this appreciated…  a lot of the information I've read on websites is at least a few years old

Ideally I want a good quality open source software I can then develop to my needs. I'm a little wary the open source nature of Alfresco may go the way of SugarCRM given one article I read  but im not sure how much this should influence my decision.   … here is what I'm looking for …

I envisage an ideal system to be something along the lines of … main users could send documentation requests to clients via a browser link by email & text message … message would list documents required. From the browser, clients can upload documents to their custom repository by drag and drop or file selection from their computer. Client’s interaction with system would simply be web based. Documents are all converted to pdf within the process and stored in the system separately but can be presented back to the user as a single multipage pdf. The system should allow easy categorisation of  the documents …

I've created a very basic fillable pdf form out of an excel sheet.  I am having trouble with two different columns of fields. Other columns of fields with the exact same properties do not have these problems.  Here is the problem:

When I test the form, in either Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro or Adobe Reader, I try to delete numbers from the fields after I enter them (to see if ctrl+z can be used to backup a step). I can delete information from some of the fields this way, but others will not delete. If I try to delete using Edit-->Undo, it lets me click edit/undo, but the information is still in the field.  When I go back to the field and click on it, the data disappears. When I click somewhere else in the form, that same data reappears.  I've searched online and the only similar problem seems to be data that is not shown in a field until clicked. Mine is sort of opposite. "Deleted" data shows in a field until you click it.

Thanks for your help.
This server hosts a document management system based on SQL, but also has a large directory of documents.  The program offers full text indexing of the documents using the server's indexing service.  There are currently just over 1 million documents included in that index.  We have started having issues with the index developing corruption, at which point the server detects it and starts a reindex.  With the number of documents that indexing takes several days.  The directory with the catalog (in ProgramData) is excluded from backup and from antivirus scanning.  I can't find any definitive reason for the corruption.  I also can't find any definitive advice on the recommended size or number of documents for the service to work well.  Does anyone have experience using the index service for very large numbers of documents?  Does it work well?  Are there any reasons for the corruption that I might be overlooking?  Thanks!
Just copied my movie files to an external hardrive and when i list using date modified every movie file  which is in a folder comes up with the "copy and paste date" not the original date of modification.  I would like to list the folders in the original date when choosing list by date modified.
I'm looking for a collaborative platform for my enterprise.
The platforme must mainly include:
  • Project and Task Management/Tracking
  • Activity stream
  • Knowledge Base Management
  • Document Management (co-edition, versionning...)
  • Time Management
I've tested and really loved but the fact is that it's  not include an offline mode so our employees cannot access their task queue when internet access is out of hand.

Can someone propose me a platform that matchs these requirements??

I have an Adobe Livecycle generated form, the form is hosted on an intranet, and it collects few pieces of information from users, I'm trying to add a "save as" button onto the form so that users can save, print, email the form along with the data entered, so I added a "save as" button with the relative javascript line (app.execMenuItem("SaveAs"), but when I preview it I get an error;
Save a Blank Copy of this Form, Data typed into this form will not be saved.

What's the work around and what do you recommend.
