Creating new "Collectors" in IRIS Powerscan

This guide will instruct you through the process of setting up new document collectors to process files. You will need access to the IRIS Powerscan client in order to do this.

The Process

  1. Open IRIS Powerscan
  2. Go to File > Open
  1. Right Click and existing Project > Copy > Paste

  1. Double-click the newly created project. This will take you to the page which showed when you first opened Powerscan
  1. Select Designer from the bottom left of the page
  1. Change the relevant information to correspond to the new collector
    1. In our example, we copied a collector from "WAKEFIELD" so we will be replacing the words WAKEFIELD with BLUNHAM
  2. The fields you may need to change this are:
    1. Name
    2. Path
      1. The path may be different to our examples.
      2. This is where you want the documents to be picked up from
    3. Backup

  1. Once this is done, go back to the Navigation section
You have now set up a new collector in your Powerscan software. This will now start importing and processing documents.
