Meetup Recap: PDF Operations in Automation 360

Guest speaker: Theertha K S, A-lister & Technical Manager at Mindtree Limited.

As we all know, PDF documents are one of the most common documents used in business processes. They can be categorized depending on the way the file originated. It can either be a Digitally created PDF or a scanned PDF.

During this virtual meetup, we discussed the following topics:

– Extract data from PDF
– Merge and Split PDFs
– Encrypt and decrypt documents
– Set data to fillable PDFs

You can use PDF package, which is in-built in the Automation 360 platform. You can then explore extended capabilities through the PDF Utilities package from Bot Store.

To make it easy for you to consume the content, we have split the full video into byte sized videos based on individual features. Here are the videos for your reference:

Conclusion:

Mastering to work with PDF documents is an important skill since most businesses use documents in this format. You can choose between an in-built PDF package or PDF utilities package to use based on your specific use case.

To extract tabular data from scanned image PDF documents such as Invoices, Claims forms, Bank statements etc., you can use IQ Bot which we have covered in one of our previous meetups and you can access the recording here.
