How does the Scan my Bills screen work?
The Scan my Bills button is located in the toolbar along the top of the Transaction screen.
If there are no documents to import, the following screen will appear when you click on the Bills button.
If there are documents ready to import into your database, the Scan my Bills - Documents box will automatically appear when you enter the Transaction screen.
Overview of the Scan my Bills - Documents box
The Documents box is divided into two areas; Workflow and Functions.
There are three document sections which indicate what part of the process each document is sitting in.
Documents to code
Documents in this section have a supplier name and the invoice line amounts balance to the total amount due.
You can import them into the Transaction screen as either a new transaction or into a transaction that already exists in the Transaction screen.
Documents to correct
Depending on the invoice information that has been picked up from the document i.e. supplier name, Scan my Bills will determine if a transaction can be created.
If the service can't pick up a supplier name and/or gross total amount, you need to review the document in the Xtracta web browser to add the missing fields.
Scan my Bills needs to recognise specific pieces of information within a document before it can be brought to the Transaction screen.
Column Explanation Invoice No can also be a reference number Supplier supplier of goods or services Amount the total amount due on the invoice Inv. Lines the number of lines recorded in the invoice (automatically displayed)
If you record more than one bank account in your database, you can select the bank account number the transaction will be allocated to when it is created.
View scanning errors
If an email has been sent with no attachments or with an invalid file type, you can click View scanning errors to delete them.
If the button is greyed out, there are no errors.
If a document contains multiple invoice lines it can be brought to the Transaction screen as a single-line transaction.
When a document has one invoice line, only the 'As 1 line' option is available.
