Processing Recognized Documents

Whether you have uploaded the documents using the RiseDoc app or through the system, those recognized documents have to be processed in the same way.

There are different situations that may occur when processing a document.

Recognizing All the Fields in Documents

This is when the document is clear and the key fields are compatible with the attributes in the system.

Recognizing Some of the Fields in Documents

This is when only a few fields have not been recognized and the user has to manually enter the information. For example: in the screenshot below the supplier, invoice date, due date, subtotal and total were not recognized correctly. The user can either enter the information manually or use the linking tool to indicate where the correct information is.
