When setting up the form templates, one of the columns in the template is called “Sample headers”. Defining sample headers in the form template helps make Capture smarter.

So what exactly are sample headers? Sample headers are those “titles” or “headings” which identifies or describes what that piece of information is on the page. Once Capture finds the header on the page, it will know that the value it is trying to capture is somewhere nearby. This helps make Capture more intelligent during the capture stage.

FileHold offers an easy method to access a document from an external application: a document link. The link works in any browser to take the user to the document in the FileHold folder, web viewer, or download the document directly to the browser’s download folder. Sometimes it is desirable to download the document without any user intervention. A tool like Powershell provides some great facility for automating the download and it can also easily interface with the FileHold API to do things like start a FileHold session.

There are many scenarios where it is desirable to integrate documents stored in FileHold with other systems. FastFind is a popular integration method because it requires no special knowledge or technical skills.
