Document types

ReadSoft Online uses document types to describe the type of incoming documents you want to process and the information you want to extract from the documents. Among other things, document types contain settings that specify:

  • The document fields you want to capture.

  • The format of the captured fields.

  • Validation rules that ensure the captured data is correct.

  • The order in which the fields appear during verification.

When you set up ReadSoft Online, you specify the document type in the Extraction settings. When choosing a document type, the name of a document type indicates its purpose, which is usually expressed as a combination of a locale and a subtype. For example, if you process invoices in Sweden, you might choose the document type named "Swedish invoices" or, if you want to capture line items, "Swedish invoices with line items". Available subtypes include:
