Capture Templates

 
 
The first step in preparing your system for Capture is to create templates for recognizing documents.
 
These templates are used to associate Sage 300 CRE vendor codes with the scanned documents as well as where to find the information on these documents that is to be extracted.
 
If you are an existing TimberScan user, you can use invoices that have been acquired and exported to Sage 300 CRE as the basis for the templates, providing  they are the same resolution as the Capture Image Resolution in System Settings.
 
Your company’s system administrator can tell you where to find these images. If you have been acquiring these images at less than 300 dpi, you will have to scan new originals to use as templates.
 
An error message will be displayed if you attempt to use an image with the incorrect resolution.
 
There is no direct scanning or 'drag and drop' into the Template definition screen
 
Capture Templates v Copy Templates:
Select Capture Templates to create and/or modify Capture templates and profiles. The Copy Templates selection allows you to copy one or more templates from the current data folder to one or more different data folders. You can also use this feature to export/import templates created by a third party into your Capture template inventory.
