OCR Setup

If any of the documents you are processing via Clever Document Links contain a Barcode, then you can choose to subscribe to an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) Service which will enable you to link them automatically to a record in Dynamics 365 Business Central.

OCR Service Information

The OCR Service that Clever Document Links integrates with is a Cloud OCR Service by ABBYY. Their website is:

You will need to sign up to the Service and obtain an ID and Password which will be used to authenticate the Service from within Dynamics 365 Business Central.
