Automatic filing of invoices

 First of all I would like to point out that I am a true beginner without any real knowledge of programming.

For my first workflow, I would like to scan different supplier invoices (some double-sided and others not) and then automatically file them in folders with the names of the suppliers and if possible by invoice date and not by scan date.

I have already made several attempts with barcodes to separate, split etc... but without success.

Is this feasible and is there a simple enough method for a beginner like me?

Thank you in advance.


(Sharescan version V4)

Hi Marco,


welcome to the Scanshare world cool.

They are basic steps so for sure you can do it, for example you may need two workflows for your case:

  1. Separate the document (Barcodes separation or Blank pages or split ... and save the document into WFS folder)
  2. Try to get your data (WF capture with folder field of the previous workflow, get names of suppliers and invoice date) and save the document according to your needs


Just for info we are now at version v5.10.20.

Have a nice day!


Best regards,
