The capture life cycle in Athento

When we talk about the life cycle of documents (or content, in general), we’re talking about the way in which document are always subjected to a process (or evolution), with recognizable, predictable states. Those are repeating processes. "Life cycle" term is familiar within document management applications, or generally with Enterprise Content Management platforms. Capture applications, however, can also work with life cycles for the documents that they process.

In the case of Athento, every time that we upload a document to the application to be automatically classified and to have its data extracted, the document goes through a two-stage life cycle:

  • Review: This is the state of the documents when they’re uploaded to the system and during processing. This state basically makes reference to the information obtained by Athento (document type and extracted metadata) not being certified as correct by a human user.)
  • Validated: This is the state a document gets when a person revises the information obtained by Athento and approves it as valid. This is the final state that documents receive in Athento. 

To see the state of a document, consult the list of documents:
