Adding metadata automatically

Post by jabbrwcky » Sun Mar 03, 2019 10:24 pm


Ijust took Mayan for a spin for an hour or two. It looks quite nice so far, even if I could use a little more extensive documentation of concepts and features. This also is my first excursion into eDMS, so I expect some challenges :)

Is there a way to automatically extract metadata from a (scanned) document, e.g Invoice number, date, amount, etc?

My best guess would be that a workflow, because it could react on OCR being finished, but I could not figure out anything yet.

Any pointers are very welcome.

There is an add-on called Document Analyzer, that I think will do that job... but not sure.

I haven't successfully managed to get the add-on working, so I couldn't say for sure what it is like to use.
