Written by Richard Adams on Friday, 28 April 2017. Posted in TeleForm, OpenText

OpenText have released the latest updates to their intelligent forms automation solution TeleForm. The new version is OpenText TeleForm 16.2.

This release of TeleForm is numbered 16.2 to conform with the standard OpenText release numbering approach. The previous release from OpenText was version 11.2.

This is the first release since OpenText acquired TeleForm (and LiquidOffice) from HP. The next chapter in the evolution of TeleForm and LiquidOffice shows early promise with OpenText stating customers will see new innovations, an increased emphasis on form automation and user experience, and interesting integrations with other OpenText products.

This section lists the new features in the latest version.

Export to OpenText Content Server 16

TeleForm has added a new Export that enables export directly to OpenText Content Server 16.

Support for OpenText RightFax 10.6

TeleForm integrates with OpenText RightFax to enable forms distribution and capture by Fax. Support has also been added for OpenText RightFax 10.6.

Advanced Document Extraction update

TeleForm’s Advanced Document Extraction (ADE) feature enables use of OpenText Capture Document Reader (CDR) to process semi-structured documents with rules-based processing. CDR includes technology that was previously known as DOKuStar Extraction.

This feature is intended to support legacy customers upgrading from older versions of TeleForm that included DOKuStar Extraction, and also support implementations of CDR by OpenText partners as an option for semi-structured document processing.

TeleForm now includes new capabilities for recognition and extraction of Vietnamese handprint. This is included as a beta feature in this release that can be configured for use in a non-production environment.

TeleForm has added support for the following new platforms:

  • Microsoft Windows Server 2016
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2016

Discontinued and deprecated features

The following features have been deprecated in this release:

  • BasicScript is no longer recommended for use with TeleForm and remains enabled only to support legacy environments. Use of the TeleForm COM Scripting API is recommended. A reminder will also be displayed each time the BasicScript editor is opened (TF-8544).
