Add a form when your workflow requires capture of index data. To add a form, fill out the following 3 tabs:

General tab

Scanner Settings tab

Components tab

General tab

Field Name Description
Form Name The name of the form to be displayed by client software, such as QuickCapture Desktop.
Icon File Browse to the folder location that contains GIF, PNG, or JPEG file for this form entry. The Form icon is 48x48 256 color.
Form Type
  • Local Form — Select this option if you want to create your own form template using form fields and style sheets.
  • Web Form — Select this option to either create or point to an existing web app/form and provide the URL.  The web app/form will be displayed in the web form-enabled QuickCapture clients.  Once the Submit button is clicked by the user all the standard HTML control name/value pairs along with any hidden fields (the name of the hidden field must end with _RRT) will be captured as the RRT enabled meta data for the document(s) captured.
Form Style Click the browse button (...) to customize the look and feel of the form you are designing. See Style Builder for specific attribute information.
Script File The Script File feature extends the functionality of otherwise static Forms by allowing custom VBScripts to be executed on the server at runtime to update form field values/settings, and to perform any necessary form field validation based on available runtime data. Enter the VBScript name for validating the index data on the devices.
  • Run Script on Form Load — Select this check box to execute the script file on the server prior to loading the form on the script-enabled client.
  • Run Script on Form Validate — Select this check box to execute the script file on the server to determine if the form data submission is allowed.

For more information, see VBScripting.

Form Fields Add fields by clicking the New field button appearing as the first column header and labeled  N.  Once you have added the first row, you can tab through to get additional fields added.

For each field you can configure the field attributes:

  • Field Name — Field name is a string type and can be any alphanumeric characters.  Using special characters (~, &, <, >,%, ", /, \, :, ?, | ) is not recommended.
  • Type — The supported string types are:
  • Required checkbox (R) — Select this check box if the field is required to be filled.
  • Validation checkbox (V) — Select this check box if you want the field to be validated.
  • Hint — Description field for administrator reference.
  • Properties — Set the field attributes by clicking the properties button (...) in the right-most column on each entry.

Scanner Settings

Option Description
Allow user to change default Original Type If enabled, user will see an icon representing this scanner setting on the QuickCapture Desktop user interface which allows the user to change the settings.  If this option is disabled, the setting is "locked", i.e., the user cannot change scan settings defined for the form.
Original Type
  • One sided
  • Two Sided
Resolution Determines the quality of the scanned image. The image resolution is defined by the number of dots-per-inch that are used to create the image. The higher the resolution the sharper the image. 300 dpi is optimal for creating text PDF files.
Color The following options are supported:
  • B/W ATP
  • B/W iThreshold
  • Gray
  • Color
Document Type Allows you to select from a list of document type to get the optimum scanner setting for proper documents:
  • Text — Select this when your documents are text only.
  • Text and Graphics — Select this when the  image is printed image.
  • Photograph — Select this setting when the documents is image of printing paper
Contrast (min 1 max 100) Enhances the edges contained in an image by adjusting the difference between black-and-white, and thereby making an image sharper or softer.

In a low contrast setting, the difference between black and white is small, so the image is softer. In a high contrast setting, the difference between black and white is large, so the image is clearer. Thus, the higher the contrast level, the more enhancement of the image edges.

Threshold (min 0 max 255) Converts a gray scale image to a black-and-white image. A low threshold value produces a lighter image, and can be used to subdue backgrounds and subtle, unneeded information. A high threshold value produces a darker image, and can be used to help pick up faint images.
Output Format The following options are supported:
  • TIFF
  • PDF
  • JPG
JPEG Quality The following options are supported:
  • Good
  • Better
  • Best
  • Superior
Brightness Determines how light or dark a color will be.  The higher the brightness value, the closer a color will be to white, the lower the value, the closer it is to black.
Page Size Displays paper size options based on what is allowed by the individual scanner.  If the paper size is not chosen, the scanner will default to 8.5 x 11.0.
