DOCLINE User Feedback

Thanks for your feedback! 

In the months to come, DOCLINE will be issuing new releases with added features. We are reviewing user feedback as part of the evaluation process that will help determine what will be included in future versions. Enhancements are evaluated for other factors too, including how often, and widely used the proposed functionality will be, and the complexity and difficulty of the coding, testing and support of the feature.

To suggest an enhancement for this list, write to the Help Desk.


These are the features or areas you've said we should prioritize for development, grouped by category.
