  1. Replace Nuance OCR with Tesseract or Microsoft OCR

    The Nuance Engine in FaxMaker is doing a good job, however by replacing the engine with an open source or free alternative like the above, customer will benefit from an inbuilt feature instead buying an addon.

    A review of the OCR will be taking place in Q3 2016. What engine will be used and wether it will be changed is still to be addressed.

  2. Set a sort order to group names

    As you create new group names, these are getting added one after another. Once the number of groups becomes considerably large, it would become difficult to trace a particular name in the jumbled order.
    It is suggested to add a feature to arrange the groups in Alphabetical order for easy access.

  3. Route faxes based on AD users fax number

    A long outstanding feature request to auto route inbound faxes based on the AD Business Fax Number of licensed FM users. This would simplify the daily work of the FM administrator who would save a lot of time by using such feature. This feature is more efficient than maintaining and configuring individual DID/MSN routing rules within GFI FaxMaker console. Furthermore, for unlimited user license customers it would be appreciated, if the step to add explicitely FM user into the configuration can be skipped. So, basically FM would auto route inbound faxes to the email address (found in AD and associated…

  4. DID Import/Export

    When a user imports/exports a list of DID rules, the list should display the AD name of licensed user not the full name, therefore when importing back into faxmaker the rules will be associated.

  5. digital signatures for outbound faxes

    As a professional industries such as finance, accounting legal etc require documents including faxes to be signed, having the ability to include a digital signature on outbound faxes would be advantageous.

    1. Save a scanned signature to encrypted file
    2. When sending a fax place signature on the file like an annotation (e.g. PDF editors have this functionality)

  6. Multiple Gateways

    I have a client that has 2 companies operating within the same structure/equipment. They are moving to two separate hosted exchange solutions, but the phone system is still all one system. I need the faxmaker to be able to link to '2' separate gateways. For now it seems like I will have to link to '1', and then create/pay for users to simply be a 'forward' to their primary email. it would be preferable if I could set a group of users to route one gateway, and another segment route another gateway based on 'domain'.

  8. GFI Directory Username and Password notification

    After installing FM2015 I did not use the setup wizard. This means I did not configure the SMTP gateway settings. As a result, when I opened GFI Directory, I was prompted for a username and password. Apparently, FM2015 was meant to send me credentials via email, however, not configuring the gateway option, means I never received this. It might be advantageous to have a pop up during installation of GFI directory that informs you credentials will be sent via email or what those credentials are? At this point I have no way of knowing what credentials to use to log…

  9. MS Sharepoint integration with GFI FAXmaker

    Some companies opt to save incoming faxes to Public Folders. Out-of-the box integration with MS Sharepoint is recommended as Microsoft seems to be moving away from Public Folders in MS Exchange. Inbound routed faxes should be added to Sharepoint Document Libraries automatically.

  10. Logfiles in separate directory, not only in main programdir.

    addidional make it possible to define the location where the logfils are sve (e.g. other partition/special directory) so also admins with limited rights can access only logfiles, but not program directory.

  11. FAXmaker 14 - Exchange Folders

    It would be a big help to have the ability to directly browse exchange folders smtp addresses. We route departmental faxes to Exchange 'mail enabled' public folders. It is how a department can monitor a single folder, then delete the fax once it has been addressed. Currently, we have to build an AD user account, then build a mail-enabled public folder and 'forward' the email to the public folder in order to get our faxes there. It would be HUGE help if we could just browse the folders to add them to routing, or manually enter the smtp address of…

  12. Color Fax, Higher Resolutions

    Why not add Color to fax???? Even the fax resolution is beyond 200dpi, so why not support higher resolutions????

    There are color fax machines already. I believe a small # of fax software support color fax already.

    I think the technology (e.g. FoIP), hardware, bandwidth, etc is really not the stopping stone here for introducing such features.

  13. 1st page of attachment on coverpage needed!

    My customer needs a very essential feature. On the coverpage it must be possible to have the first page of the attachment. (Just like a normal letter with own logo, address etc.)
    The following pages can be attached as normally (no letter layout, just printed as they were sent to GFI-printer)

    Tobit David zehn offers this feature!!!
    Please implement this feature in your new buildversion.

    You are trying to mimic company letterhead and continuation sheet in your faxed documents correct?

  14. XML API Transmission reports

    GFI FAXmaker should allow an option for transmission reports to return to email when a user sends a job via the XML API send method.

  16. Move failed faxes to seperate Queue

    Support the concept of reducing the priority of failed fax transmissions so that any failures are retried after sucessful ones are processed. This would avoiid lines being used for retries and delaying pending requests in the queue being processed. Could a second queue of faiures be supported which was processed after the main queue has completed

  17. Sender of failed faxes...

    We have two large customers that requested to be able to change the sender of the failed faxes. Right now it is sent by fax@faxmaker.com, but if a person wants to reply to that, you will receive another failure, since this is not a valid user. I tried to look this up in the registry, a hidden setting of some kind, but it seems to be not configurable.
    Can you make it possible to change this? It can then be set for example to a distribution-list of the domain admins.

  18. Improve multithreading of app

    Mulitthread the app better to take advantage of multiple processors. While there is a "use multiple processors" checkbox in the options, our quad core sits there with only one or two procs doing all the work. Also, while those are doing work, they are not coming anywhere near using the maximum processing power of that core. The result is that we have a quad core i7 machine that loafs even though we are waiting large amounts of time for fax jobs to convert.

  19. Outgoing Fax Addressee Needs to Be More Intuitive

    Please consider making the methods for submitting outgoing faxes to be more intuitive. What we are looking for is something more user friendly than firstname.company.lastname.number@faxmaker.com It would be nicer if it were firstname.lastname.company.number or company.firstname.lastname.number. It's odd that the first and last names are separated. Especially if you were to consider cases where you're sending a message to somebody that's not associated with a company. I don't have any mention of the company on the cover page. There's no need to have to enter it. Thank you.
