This article is an overview of the AP Capture AI, which uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to automatically complete forms on the Documents to Process page of the R365 Accounting software. 

Article Topics


The AP Capture AI tool uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to automate AP invoice processing, saving valuable time and resources.

Once an invoice has been uploaded in Documents to Process, select the document to open the Draft Transaction. If OCR is enabled, the fields on the Draft Transaction screen are automatically completed by the software. If any corrections need to be made, the fields can be manually adjusted. Alternatively, a user can select the Review OCR Mapping button above the Document Previewer. This opens Review OCR Mapping, where you can instruct the tool by making mapping corrections directly on the invoice. When corrections are made in Review OCR Mapping, the tool remembers these mapping selections to improve automation for future invoices. To learn how to correct mapped fields, see Documents to Process: Correcting OCR Mapping.

Users can access and review documents that were created in the past 90 days from the Recently Completed tab of the Documents to Process page.

For more information on processing documents in R365, see Documents to Process Overview.
