ABBYY FlexiCapture – Adding a Custom Column to a Document List

Learn how to customize the view in the interface of ABBYY FlexiCapture. Add custom columns to your document list in ABBYY FlexiCapture for easier review.

Hello, today I’m going to show you how we can custom column to our documents list within ABBYY FlexiCapture. So, within my queue I have three different documents and each of these documents we’re extracting the last name from them. I’m going to show the last name as its own column here so that we review it easily and see that document’s last name easily from our document list.

The first thing I need to do is go within our document definition and edit it. I’m going to select the last name field and I’m going to select the index field property. From here I will save my changes and I will publish my changes. Now you can see the software detects that there’s a new version published so just for ease of processing these I’m going to update those now. And then what I’m going to do is I’m going to customize my columns. So I’m going to right click on the column list, go to customize, and I’m going to add a new column.

We’re going to give it a name of “LastName”. We’re going to select which field, and you can see here, we’re going to select the “lastname” field and I will hit okay. Once I hit okay to this customization you will see the software will then populate that field here on the right. Of course, I can move where that’s located here within our document list, but the cool part about this is I can see the specific details that I’ve extracted from each separate document here within our document list giving us a nice review option as we’re looking through documents.

So I hope you’ve enjoyed this video. A quick introduction as to how we can customize the view in the interface of ABBYY FlexiCapture. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us. Thank you so much.

      For batches, this would be done by using batch registration parameters and displaying those within the “View / Batches” screen. You would need to add Batch Parameters programmatically in a workflow stage. To learn about batch registration parameters, open your FlexiCapture Administration Guide. Search for “registration parameters.” For a batch you configure those parameters in the “Batch Properties” dialog box.
