Indexing Documents Manually
Manual indexing may be useful in cases when you need to scan documents, specify the values of several fields, and export the documents as images. Since the documents will not be exported to ABBYY FlexiCapture, you will not need to create a Document Definition for these documents on the Project Setup Station. You may need to specify registration parameters for all the documents or only for documents of a specific type. But first, you will need to create and set up document types.
There are two ways to create new document types on a Scanning Station:
1. You can create new document types from scratch.
Note. We recommend creating a separate batch type on a Scanning Station for images that will be indexed by hand.
2. You can import the names of document types from a batch type in ABBYY FlexiCapture.
In this case, document types from ABBYY FlexiCapture will be added to the list of document types and you will be able to set up registration parameters for these types.
Important! If you import registration parameters from ABBYY FlexiCapture again (for instance, when updating the registration parameters of a batch from ABBYY FlexiCapture), all the batch and document registration parameters that were created on the Scanning Station will be deleted. For this reason, if you want to import the registration parameters of certain batches from ABBYY FlexiCapture into the Scanning Station, we recommend creating separate batch types in ABBYY FlexiCapture for such batches.
To apply document types to scanned images:
- Assemble the images into a document.
- Open the document's properties and select the desired type from the Type drop-down list on the Registration Parameters tab.
