  1. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  9. Full fax number of sender in archive database

    Keep full fax number of sender in seperate column in archive database, now column [remote_id] contains the fax number set by the user in its fax device which is not always trustworthy.

    For linking purposes to other applications or databases it should be great when a column always contains the full fax number (send by the PABX of provider).

  10. No fax cover page option

    Would like option to not send cover page when a fax is sent by a selected user or group.

    Currently there are only two options per support
    1. In the Coverpage options if you check the box "Only if message text is present"
    .
    2. You can add the line "::C=none" with no quotes to the top line of the email to tell FaxMaker not to send a fax.

    We have an assigned user account to our AS400 and we send out 100's of faxes a night to our growers who don't need the coverpage. Option 1 is not an…

  11. Billing Code

    I'd like to suggest putting a area within the form similar to the subject bar for the billing code reference as our user community forget to input the optional code as it's not in theiir face, also the code needs to be cleared and not store the previous code to avoid errors

  12. Header/Footer field from AcitveDirectory - office

    There are all kind of fields that can be put from AD to footer/header, but there is one that you missed - Office field.

  13. Let admins edit the subject line / and or the fax attachment.

    Faxmaker Admins should be able to modify the subjec line to include things like the number (CID, DTFM, DID etc) that the call is coming in on as well as the title of the fax so it is easy to search the archives.

  14. Encryption for Faxes

    There is a growing need for companies to have all faxes that have pii information contained in them to be encrypted. I would like to see if GFI could encrypt the PDF that is sent in email for all faxes. This would solve issues for companies that do not have local servers or cost to have a third party encrypt all emails coming from GFI FaxMaker.

  15. Option to disable coverpage for one or more users

    Please add the option to disable the coverpage for users per user. Now we need to select a coverpage and don't have this option.

    We are a hosting company and not every customer wants a coverpage.

  16. Allgemeines Faxlayout(Briefpapier) bestimmen

    Es wäre nicht schlecht wenn man im Faxmaker eine Faxvorlage wie z.B. das Briefpapier eines Kunden hinterlegen kann oder eben einen Hintergrund, so dass auch Faxe mit dem selben Layout des Kunden versendet werden als ganz normale Briefe.
    Momentan werden Faxe auf einem weißen Hintergrund verschickt, was aber für mehrere unserer Kunden nicht annehmbar ist und Sie anstatt Ihres weißen Hintergrundes Ihren Briefkopf haben möchten.

    Wäre das realisierbar? Diese Anfroderung ist laut dem tel. Support bereits bekannt, da mehrere Kunden diese Anforderung haben.

    It would not be bad if the Faxmaker a fax form such as may deposit the stationery of a customer or just a background, so that faxes are sent with the same layout of the customer as normal letters.
    Currently faxes are sent on a white background, but for several of our customers is not acceptable and you want instead of your white background have your letterhead.

    Would that be feasible? This Anfroderung is already known according to the tel. Support, as several clients have this requirement.

  17. Public Folder Contact retrieval for incoming faxes

    Our customer wants to use public folder contact retrieval with GFI Faxmaker & Exchange 2010 to retrieve contact information from a public contact list in Exchange and print it on the fax for incoming
    faxes.

  18. Global Contact List

    We need a better way to handle global contact list that will be shared out to users. Maybe control this from the server configuration application would be great. It would be great to be able to import / update this address books on a regular basis.

  19. Dialing Exception interface improvements

    The current interface for managing dialing exceptions is difficult to work with in large US metropolitan areas with overlapping area codes. Area Codes are processed sequentially from the list and removing one leaves a hole in the list that will be filled by the next area code added. There is no way to move area codes up and down.

    Adding the ability to import/update from a csv could be another solution.

  20. Lines sending and receiving scheduling

    It would be nice to have an option to disable the sending on a line during specific hours of the day of the week.

    Exemple in a 4 lines setup:
    Day (2 lines only receive, 2 lines send and receive)
    Night (1 lines only receive, 3 lines send and receive)
