What's new in the DataSnipper Platform?
Form Extraction has never been friendlier
The new user interface allows users to easily navigate and use Form Extraction. On the start page, you have quick access to your templates folder; a folder that includes all your saved extractions. When you start a new extraction, you can select or import the documents you would like to use. Additionally, it is now easier to navigate through the preview panel, add and rename multiple extractions, and edit extraction keys.
Saving templates in Form Extraction
It is now possible to save the extractions you created as templates in Form Extraction.
- Once you create a new form extraction, DataSnipper will give you the option to save it as a template for future use.
- The templates will save you a lot of time when you need to extract multiple data from documents with the same structure again.
- Simply by importing new documents to your saved template, DataSnipper will automatically extract the data for you.
- When saving your templates, giving a title and a description will allow you to easily structure your templates folder.
To save you more time, DataSnipper put together a variety of featured templates based on the most commonly used forms. The standardized templates decrease your manual work while increasing efficiency.
Sharing is caring. Your individual saved templates can be shared across your organization, ready to be used by everyone. Your colleagues can automatically run Form Extraction by simply importing their documents.
Table Snip Suggestions
DataSnipper now automatically recognizes the documents that contain tables and provides suggestions to Table Snip. With the added button on the document viewer, you can extract the suggested table or group of tables to your Excel workbook. Fewer clicks, more automation.
