    It would be very helpful to have a desktop shortcut or a small application to upload files quickly via drag&drop, without using a browser.

    • Cloud-OCR

      Hey,

      I in general love the idea of putting my private stuff tagged into one single place. Are there any plans for a OCR on uploaded documents ?

      Most private persons only have limited access to full OCR Document Scanners at home :p so for me for example a scan would also "scanning" a document with a Android Scan App (results are pretty good) but those PDFs lack of searchable content due the fact they mostly just bitmaps.

      In the company we have a workgroup scanner wich save the scanned docuement and do a OCR on the file so the…

          Hi everyone!

          We’re so thrilled to announce the release of doctape Viewer for Android, today!

          Please note: doctape Viewer for Android is a standalone app which is not yet capable of connecting to your doctape Cloud account. It already works great and comes with the whole conversion and support for importing existing files from other apps, as well as from 3rd party cloud services.

          That said, adding the doctape Cloud Sync to the app is our top priority now, so you can expect this to land soon! Along with this, we’re looking into possibilities to make this a free app for all our users which are on a doctape Cloud paid plan.

          Enough said, here’s the link:

          https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.doctape.android

          We’re looking forward to get your feedback!

          - the @doctapers

        • Tags and/or filter

          Introduce a way to filter tags either by "AND" or "OR" condition.

          • Multiple selections

            I had a bunch of old files and had to delete one by one.

            If we could check all the ones we want to delete, like e-mail, it would be much faster.

            Thank you.

            • Create multiple screen layouts / views

              At the moment, there's one standard view of documents: thumbnail to the left, title, tags and tapes to the right. This costs some space. Maybe there should be different views of the documents, e.g. thumbnails only, or something like list vs grid, perhaps with adjustable thumbnail sizes. Working with large numbers of documents would get easier.

                Hey Drubb,

                there’s already a little easter-egg in doctape you might wanna try…

                Type ‘4science’ into the search-bar and see some magic happen. Type in ‘4science’ again to set things back to normal.

                Feel free to spread the word if you like it! :-)

              • enable folder upload

                Despite full text search, it is often useful to have items in certain folders / directories (for me for sharing with my secretary). It would be useful to have this functionality. You would really make a difference to my (and other people's) workflow if you combined the functionality of dropbox (folders) and xambox (OCR) with the addition of recognising/displaying different formats such as OpenOffice. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you very much again, Mathis Heydtmann

                • Mobile App: use PIN to unlock

                  On the iOS app it would be great to be able to set a PIN so that the app is locked, even if you don't want to set a pin for the whole iPhone/iPad.

                          • option for linking persons and companies by special tags / Spezielle Tags für Firmen und Personen

                            So far I can just tag my documents with names of the related company or person.
                            It would be very helpful to differentiate between simple "tags" and related persons, e.g. amazon for amazon invoices.
                            It´s just a visual thing to get a better overview, because its cumbersome to search for company XYZ within 100 of different tags.
                            With other words, company-tags should optically be separated from normal tags.

                            #########

                            Bislang kann ich die Dokumente nur über normale "tags" bestimmten Firmen oder Personen zuordnen.
                            Es wäre sehr hilfreich, wenn zwischen Firmen/Personen und normalen "tags" unterschieden werden könnte, da es sehr mühselig…
