How to Use Barcode Plugins

There are 2 plugins: Barcode for Page Processing and Barcode for Document Extraction.

  1. Barcode for PP – If it finds a barcode value on any page, it creates a page level field to be used by Document Assembler so that we can split and classify the documents based on the barcode. There are 2 prerequisites:
    1. Assembler plugin needs to be set to barcode or automatic classification
      {BATCH CLASS} >> Document Assembly >> DOCUMENT_ASSEMBLER->DA Classification Type
    2. There should be a document type with the barcode value.
  2. Barcode for Extraction assigns the barcode values it find on the pages of the document. To capture the barcode and assign it to a field Administrator needs to navigate to the Document Level Field and assign the barcode type to it.

Please note both barcode plugins are turned off by default.

{BATCH CLASS} >> Extraction >> BARCODE_EXTRACTION->Barcode Extraction Switch
{BATCH CLASS} >> Page Process >> BARCODE_READER->Barcode Classification Switch
