  • Unlimited options.

  • Can auto populate with automated indexing.

  • Used by multiple departments including but not limited to the following:

    • Admissions

    • Human Resources



ImageNow: Delete a Document

ImageNow:  Documents that are no longer needed should be routed to "L_Forms Deleted Forms" workflow queue, which can be found in the route anywhere or route forward options. The document will route to the delete queue based on the prefix of the document.  Most delete queues are set with an automated timer and will delete the document from the Perceptive Content server after the document has been in the workflow queue for 30 days.  Human Resources documents will automatically delete after 120 days.


ImageNow: Document Properties

ImageNow: The values that are needed to find the electronic document later.  Document properties are used to store, secure, and retrieve a document.


Technical Definition:  Document properties are the values added to the document for retrieval purposes example: Drawer, Field 1, Field 2, Field 3, Field 4, Field 5 and document type. Custom properties quality as document properties also.  


ImageNow: Document Type

ImageNow:  Document type tells us what kind of document it is.


Technical Definition:  Document type uniquely categorizes a document. Permissions can be assigned at the Document Type level as well. We use the document type for automated routing, especially in the L_Forms Complete workflow queue. Document types begin with the department prefix.


ImageNow: Drawers

ImageNow:  Drawers are where the documents are stored in the electronic file cabinet.  Permissions are usually set at the drawer level.


Technical Definition:  Drawers provide the first hierarchical level of organization for ImageNow/Percepive Content documents. A drawer is used to separate documents and folders into logical categories. Some users think of drawers as individual departments or as a file cabinet drawer.  Drawers are created based on permissions – who needs to view/process the documents that live in a specific drawer.


ImageNow: Electronic Signature

ImageNow:   Electronic/Digital Signatures are used on Grants and Purchase orders.  Only a few people have permission to use this option on campus.  A password is required when using the electronic/digital signature.  Once an electronic/digital signature is applied to a document the annotations are greyed out and no longer available.

(This is different from the All Forms Name/Date Signature Stamp)

Technical Definition:   Electronic/Digital signatures are used with all the legal authority of "wet ink" but without the cumbersome and time-consuming tasks of printing, faxing, mailing and manually validating signed paper.

ImageNow: Forms Workflow

Forms workflow is unique to University of Wisconsin Stout’s campus.

  • The L_ Forms drawer is a holding drawer.
  • No documents permanently live in L_Forms drawer.

Forms Application plan:   ~L_Forms

  • F1 = Last Name, First Name (can be left blank if document isn’t associated to a person)
  • F2=User ID (automatically populated)
  • F3=Date/Time (automatically populated)
