OCR receipt reading
We have introduced OCR (Optical Character Recognition) which will read the details off a receipt once it has been activated.
To get started upload a receipt by clicking Available receipts, then Upload.
To use OCR, click the OCR or icon on the receipt thumbnail image.
Once you have clicked the pencil icon you will be presented with the screen below.
When you have clicked the OCR button, the information off the receipt will be populated into the fields as shown below.
If any of this information is incorrect, the system makes some suggestions based on what has been read off the receipt.
To access this click the calendar icon as shown in the below screenshot.
One of the suggestions can be used to populate the field, this menu is usable on any of the fields to input the information correctly.
If you would still prefer to type all this information in manually this can also still be done, without using the OCR tool.
