Automated Document Splitting

We are thrilled to announce the release of our latest feature - Automated Document Splitting! This powerful addition allows you to split a single PDF document into its individual components automatically, streamlining your document management process like never before. Say goodbye to manually identifying splits and hello to increased efficiency!

We understand that dealing with multiple invoices (or other document types) in a single PDF document can be a time-consuming task. With our new automatic document splitter, you can now seamlessly handle such situations. Whether you receive multiple invoices from suppliers in one document or scan multiple physical invoices together as a single PDF, our document splitter ensures that all data is correctly parsed, saving you valuable time and eliminating the risk of missing any important invoices.

Enabling automatic document splitting

Activating the Automatic Document Splitting feature is easy! Simply navigate to the Workspace settings within the app, and you'll find the option to enable it.

We understand that each customer may have unique requirements, which is why we provide the flexibility to configure how you would like the splitter to function, with 4 options available to customers:

  1. Leave - automated splitting is off, we don't split any documents or prompt the user that multiple documents may have been detected
  2. Conservative - we do not action any splitting of documents, but we present a warning to the user in the validation interface that multiple documents have been detected
  3. Recommended - documents that are highly likely to contain multiple are automatically split, and warnings are added to documents that we believe may have multiple
  4. Aggressive - split all documents that we detect may have multiple

To provide better visibility, all split documents (automatic or manual) will have a purple 'split' icon associated with them so that users can easily see which documents have been split. This will make it easier for you to track document status in the list view and validation UI.

While the document splitter does its magic automatically, users will still have the option to manually split or combine documents again through the 'Edit' pages functionality. This gives you full control over your documents, even after the initial split.
