Creating a Windows shortcut to My windream

Only some simple adjustments are required to create Windows shortcuts to the virtual views in My windream. This way, frequently used views on specific document stocks of the windream ECM system can be accessed with one mouse click.

My windream – virtual views on windream documents

In windream version 5.0 and higher, My windream allows the creation of individually selected document and folder groups of the windream ECM system. These virtual views can be configured in three different ways:

  • as links from My windream to specific windream folders,
  • as dynamic views, i.e. as result lists of a previously configured windream search, or
  • as favorite lists of an individually compiled selection of documents.

This allows a structured display of e.g. mails sorted according to sender, year and date of sending, or a display of customer documents sorted according to customer name, object type and much more.

Creating a Windows shortcut to My windream

To create a Windows shortcut to a virtual view in My windream (link from My windream, dynamic view, favorite list), just create a new shortcut in a location of your choice in Windows (need not be on the desktop). In the properties of the shortcut, make the following entries:

  • C:\Windows\explorer.exe /e,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\::{BEAB12FF-8E45-4F77-88D4-7655D6ECA61E}\WD-SERVER\Privat\Neue Dynamische Sicht

The part including „::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\::{BEAB12FF-8E45-4F77-88D4-7655D6ECA61E}“ is fixed and contains a reference to My windream. It must be entered in this form. The following part specifies the path to My windream and should be adjusted.

The Server name (in this case “WD-SERVER“) must always be entered. There is no possibility of entering a server-independent path. Furthermore, it is important to enter the server name exactly, i.e. case sensitivity will be regarded.
