PSIcapture Administrator Guide: QA Auto Processing

Overview

 

Auto Processing is used to adjust different aspects of a page or document. For example users can adjust orientation, flagging, or redaction. To enable this check the Enable Auto Processing box and choose which aspects to change. NOTE: Enabling this feature will allow the QA module to be added to Auto Import and Auto Processing Capture Profiles as well as standard queue base Capture Profiles.

 

 

Table of Contents

 

Available Auto QA Commands

Add one or more of the available commands by highlighting those desired and selecting AddNOTE: The Selected Auto QA Commands will be run in the order listed. Correct placement is critical in order to get the desired results. Example: Reordering would usually occur before combine and combine before separation by number of pages.

 

Auto Orient

Auto Orient is the setting that allows users to set whether a page is automatically adjusted as portrait or landscape during the QA process.

 

 

The following options are available for page orientation:

  • Auto Orient Engines - Choose which engine to use as primary and/or secondary for auto orientation.
    • Primary Engine - This will be the engine that the program will use first. If anything besides Default is chosen the Secondary Engine is disabled.
      • Default
      • EMC Auto Orient Provider Settings



      • Recostar OCR Based Engine
    • Secondary Engine - This is the backup option if there was a problem processing with the Primary Engine and only available if the Default option is chosen on the Primary Engine.


 

Batch Processing Script

This feature is available in versions 6.1 and above.

The Batch Processing Script is called once for the batch. Use this scripting hook to perform data-related operations across the entire batch after indexing is complete.

Press the Edit Batch Processing Script button to open the script editor. Once you script is complete and built, press Save to save the script. Press Cancel to abandon your changes.




 

Batch Restructuring

The Batch Restructuring script will be called for each page in the batch. Use it to analyze each page and set the action to take on that page.

 

The following page actions are available:

  1. No Action - Do nothing with this page
  2. New Document - Start a new document with this page, making it the first page in the document
  3. Append Document - Append the document containing this page to the previous document
  4. New Folder - Start a new folder with the document containing this page.
  5. New Folder and Document - Start a new folder with this page, making it the first page in a new document in the new folder.
  6. Drop Page - Remove this page from the batch.

Documents

Combine on Index Values

Choose the document Fields To Match that the program will combine together in the batch. NOTE: In the example below: if the Doc Classification and Loan Number match the program will combine them. It will also Sequence them based on the data in the "Page" index field and Validate on the "Number of Pages" index field.

Example: The Sample Data would look like this after the above configuration is run if all 5 documents were present.

Fields: Doc Classification, Loan Number, Number of Pages, Page 
Document: 1 Legal,12345,5,1(pages 1-5 would be combined into 1 multi-page tiff)

  • Combine Behavior - Choose what behavior to use when combining documents.
    • Always Combine Folders when Fields Match

    • Don't Combine Folder when any Match Field is Blank

    • Don't Combine Folder when all Match Fields are Blank

  • Validate Sequence when Combining - Select the Sequence Field (this field will be to validate all intended documents are present before the combine.
    Example: If the data below represents the documents available in a batch, a Sequence error would occur as page 2 is missing.

    • Document: 1 Legal,12345,5,1
    • Document: 3 Legal,12345,5,3
    • Document: 4 Legal,12345,5,4
    • Document: 5 Legal,12345,5,5
  • Validate Document Page Count After Combining Select Validation Type: then Select Index Field and choose the Page Count Field. (field containing the number of pages expected in this document) or Select Manual and choose the Page Count (fixed number of pages expected in each document)
    Example: If the Sample Data looks like this after the above configuration is run, a validation error would occur because of a page count error (page 5 is missing)
    • Fields: Doc Classification, Loan Number, Number of Pages, Page
    • Document: 1 Legal,12345,5,1
    • Document: 2 Legal,12345,5,2
