Steps to Digitization: 

We’ve done all of the setup for you! You can check out the template build in the templates dashboard found in the Templates tab. All the high volume versions and most commonly captured data fields have been already added!

Step 1: Batch Submission

A.  Add files into your batch 

To upload, you may drag and drop files into the dotted space, click “click to browse” to find files in your system’s storage, or by connecting your account through the cloud services Box and Google Drive.

B. Name your batch

Once added, name your newly uploaded batch with a unique name, and click ok! After all files are uploaded, click the “Finish” button.

C. Submit the batch for digitization

With your batch now uploaded, you can now process your new batch by clicking on the “Process this Batch” button on the right hand side. Choose the CMS1500 Template or check the box to have our system automatically choose which form matches best. 

Step 2: View your Data

A. Navigate to the Dashboard 

To view your digitized batch, find “Sorting” in the navigation bar. You will see if your batch is digitized under the status column. (Note: You will review a confirmation email in your inbox when your data is finished processing.)

Click the blue “+” button and “View Data”. 

B. View or Edit Data

You can click each data field to view the original data that had just been digitized, as well as edit data by making changes in the value field and then clicking “save”.
