The Accelerated Classification Engine is available in versions 5.4+
If the Accelerated Classification Engine is enabled, the user will be allowed to configure new Classification Form Definitions and Zone Profiles from within the Classification module when viewing Classification validation results. Click the ACE button to open the ACE dialog.
NOTE: In order to use feature the user must have the correct permissions as shown below.
Users will also be able to Edit existing Form Definitions. If the ACE button is clicked for a Document that is already assigned a Form ID, the user will be prompted to either edit the Form Definition that is assigned to that Document or to create a New Form Definition. When editing an existing Form Definition, the Zone Definition Profile tab will be disabled, only the Form Definition settings can be modified.
All documents/pages will appear within the interface, and you can identify the exceptions by the yellow alert triangles in the first column. NOTE: you can adjust the interface to just show the documents with alerts by checking the “Show only documents with Classification Alerts” check box at the bottom of the dialog box. The following are the other columns within the interface:
Once a new Classification Form Definition has been configured for a Document that failed to be classified, the status icon will switch to a green checkmark indicating it has already been resolved. If you would like to re-run Classification on any other Documents that failed to be classified, click the Save Classification Corrections button. This will reprocess those unclassified Documents using any new Forms that were defined. If there are still unclassified Documents, the Classification Validation dialog will reopen so that additional Forms can be defined.
This is a sequential document ID that is assigned to each document processed.
Classification Form ID
For properly classified forms, this column will be populated with the Form ID. This will be missing from pages with Classification Alerts. Note that this dropdown will have all the configured Form IDs so you can easily reassign a Form ID to a page or document. This will also change the Record Type column to the linked Record Type.
Copy Form ID Button
This allows you to assign the Form ID of the previously classified document to the current document.
This will display the linked Record Type associated with the Form ID.
This will show the number of pages for each document.
This column can be used to reject one or all of the documents in the Validation interface.
Once you have worked through all your documents, you can click the Save button to save your changes and move on in your workflow. You will be prompted to run Batch Corrections before you can proceed.
Note: You can also just cancel out of the Validation interface and proceed to the next workflow step. If you have a QA step following Classification in your workflow, this can also be utilized to adjust your documents and make corrections. Document Types with Record Types enabled will have a Record Type column that is a drop down for all configured Record Types within QA. This can be used to reassign incorrectly classified documents.
Combine with Previous Document
This allows the user to combine documents together.
Split the Document at the currently selected page
This allows the user to split that document at any page. The user can switch pages by adjusting this number found on the bottom right of the validation window.
Accelerated Classification Configuration
The Accelerated Classification Configuration dialog allows you to define both a new Classification Form Definition and an accompanying Zone Definition Profile. It supports 2 different editing modes: Standard and Advanced. These modes can be customized in the Configuration settings to define which settings show up in each mode. By default, the Standard mode displays the basic Classification and Zone Definition settings that are predominately used. Advanced mode will display all the options that are available when defining Classification Forms and Zone Definition Profiles from within the Configuration module. Also, when opening the ACE dialog, the current document will be automatically loaded into the Viewer.
In versions 5.4.2 and above we added a "Verified Classification Match" button. This button allows the user to verify that the loaded document matches the classification form settings being edited.
Classification Form Definition
The process of setting up a Classification Form Definition is basically the same as setting one up in the Configuration module. The 2 main differences are:
The Viewer allows you to click on words to build Rules, Last Page Rules and Line Item column headers for Table Extraction.
In order to resize a Zone for a rule, you must toggle off Point and Click Item Creation using the button above the Classification Viewer.
Zone Definition Profile
Configuring a Zone Definition Profile to correspond with the new Classification Form Definition is optional. If the new Form does not require a Zone Definition Profile, simply select “Use existing Zone Definition Profile / No Profile Required”.
If you are defining a Zone Definition Profile, you can either start with an empty profile or copy an existing profile to use as a starting point. To copy an existing profile, click the Copy Existing Profile to select which profile to make a copy of. After selecting the profile, the zones for that profile will be loaded. They can then be adjusted to suit the needs of the current Form. If you always want to start with a default Zone Definition Profile, one can be configured on the ACE settings.
Whether you are copying an existing profile or starting from a blank profile, the setup of a Zone Definition Profile works the same as when setting up a profile in Configuration. The 2 main differences are:
The Zone Name is displayed as a drop down list containing the names of all the Zones that are being used to populate Document Index Fields on the Document Type. This allows the user to easily create new zones and ensure they are named correctly to match up with the naming currently being used on the Document Type.
If either the Classification Form ID or Record Type is selected as the Trigger for this Zone Definition Profile, it will automatically be configured to use the Form ID or Record Type defined on the Classification Form Definition.
Validating Form Definitions
If the option to mark imported forms as Non-Validated was selected, you can enable form Validation using ACE on the Classification Settings dialog. If this option is enabled, Forms that match a Non-Validated form during Classification will be marked as an Exception and displayed on the Classification Validation dialog with an icon indicating that it is not validated (blue question mark icon or gear icon depending on version):
To validate the Form, the user simply needs to open the ACE dialog and click Save. This allows them to check the Form Definition for accuracy, make any changes they need to, add a corresponding Zone Definition Profile, etc.
When clicking on the ACE button, they will be prompted to either validate the existing form that is assigned to that Document or create a new form:
After clicking Validate and saving the changes on the ACE dialog, the status of that Document (and any that are classified as that same Form type) will be updated in the list of Documents (in this case the Willis Orchards form was validated) to Validated (green check mark icon):
Once done validating all the Forms, click Save on the Classification Validation dialog to allow the Classification process to finish on those Forms and any other that were modified.
Now that the Forms have been validated, the next time those types of Forms are sent through Classification, they will be classified and will not raise an Exception.
