Workflow: Quality Assurance (QA) Workflow Step Configuration



The Quality Assurance (QA) Workflow step allows Administrators to configure a workflow step that allows users to perform a variety of Quality Assurance related tasks, such as fixing, replacing, and editing documents to suit your business requirements. Explore the sections below to determine how best to configure this workflow step to meet your business needs.



The options available on the General tab of Quality Assurance settings are outlined below.


Viewing Options

The settings for viewing the Quality Assurance results are located here.

  • Default Batch View – Users can view a batch in two ways as described below. NOTE: The screen layout is configurable by the user and is saved separately for each view. This allows the user to have different screen layouts (if they wish) when entering the QA module in Data view versus Tree view
    • Tree View – This displays the batch information the same way as in the Capture module after Capture.

    • Data View – This displays the batch information via indexing results. 

  • Default Data View – Users can display the index results in Data view in one of three ways.
    • Folder and Document Records – Displays the folder the batch is in along with the specific indexed data for each page.

    • Folder Records Only – Displays batch folder(s) only.

    • Document Records Only – Displays page indexed data only.

  • Default Image View – Users can display the images captures in one of three ways.

    • Page View – Selecting this option shows only the full Page Image Viewer.

    • Thumbnail View – Selecting this option shows only the Thumbnail Image Viewer. There are four size options available in the “Thumbnail Image Size” dropdown.

  • Use Monospace Font in Data View - Allows Data View to be displayed in a monospace font making it easier to QA fields that are required to be a specific number of characters.

  • Data Record Display

    • Display All Records – Default display

    • Display First Record Only – Displaying the first record only makes QA easier in the case that every record does not need to be checked.

  • Highlight field belonging to the current Document record's Record Type (including shared fields) in Data View (available in versions 6.2 and higher)

    In order for the field highlighting to occur, Record Type support must be enabled on the Capture Profile. Fields will be highlighted that are either Shared or have been selected to be part of that Document's Record Type. The highlighted fields will be the same fields that show up in the Index/Capture module index field list for a selected Record Type.

    Field highlighting will also be adjusted in real time if the user changes the Record Type on a row in the grid. Highlighting will not be updated until the user commits the data change through by either pressing enter or clicking another cell on the grid.
