Setting up Document Categories and Templates

All documents belong to a document category, which serves as a sort of container for all documents of a specific type. For example, all purchase invoices and credit memos belong to the document category PURCHASE, whereas all sales orders belong to the SALES category.

Within each document category you can have one or more templates, and each template includes a number of rules and configurations that determine how documents should be captured and processed. There are different types of templates used for different purposes, including templates for identifying document sources (for example, vendor) and templates specifying exactly how to capture and process documents.

Document Capture comes with a default configuration that sets up a number of document categories, including categories for handling purchase and sales documents. These categories are ready to use, but you can adjust them to your liking if you have specific needs or requirements. You can also create new categories if you want to process certain types of documents.
