Update: Data extraction templates are more powerful than ever!


The new extraction template previewer is now available. It is much more user-friendly. You can now define extraction zones on any page. The new previewer comes with improvements such as the possibility to disable extraction zones in order to work more comfortably. It is now also possible to define default values for a field at the template level or copy a dynamic expression defined in a form field.

Check the documentation for this feature:

How to create an extraction template from a document view?

How to create different data extraction templates for the same form?

Important! In order to provide multipage support, the calculation of extraction zones has been modified.

Some templates may require the zones to be adjusted. We recommend you to check your templates after the update.


  • Over the last few months we have gradually migrated the old documents tab to its new, faster and more usable version. It is now possible to customise the columns of this table at user level, publish a shortcut to the new view from the navigation, download in Excel and CSV among other options that will make you love this new tab. We will be ready to switch to this new view very soon. PR-765, PR-731, PR-734, PR-764, PR-794, PR-811 👏👏👏👏👏👏
