Mendel Release

Did you know we name all of our software releases after famous heretics in history? We named this release after Gregor Mendel. Mendel is credited with discovering the basic principles of heredity through experiments in his monastery’s garden. His experiments showed that the inheritance of certain traits in pea plants follows particular patterns, subsequently becoming the foundation of modern genetics and leading to the study of heredity.

Send-to-field from the Image Viewer

While we’ve always had the ability to send-to-field from our text viewer, extracted text is not always the highest quality. To solve this problem, we’ve added the ability to send-to-field directly from the PDF, making the review experience easier and more intuitive. Check out our quick tutorial below or click here to see a full overview of our send-to-field functionality!

Unitizing Contracts with Heretik Analysis

We’ve introduced a new type of Heretik Analysis model (Unitization) that now auto-groups families of documents with one another based on shared field values.

Regular Expression Building Blocks

With the Mendel release, you can now combine existing regular expressions to build completely new ones. Think of any regular expression in Heretik (whether it’s one we ship with out-of-the-box or one your team creates) as a building block component that can be easily pieced together like Lego in order to create powerful and complex searches or extraction models. Check out our quick tutorial below or click here to see a full overview of how to create regular expressions!

Preview Regular Expressions Across Documents

When crafting regular expressions in Heretik, we already show their results on the document in real time. Taking this to the next level, we now provide a preview capability to quickly view all results across up to 100 documents at a time, providing you with even more confidence in your data points and extraction models. Check out our quick tutorial below!

Other enhancements

  • When running Heretik OCR, you now have the option to auto-flatten double column contracts into one column of extracted text. Users maintain the ability to send-to-field in the image viewer by limiting text selection at the column level.
  • We’ve vastly improved the look and feel of highlights in our image viewer, including data points, search results, bookmarks/links, and send-to-field highlights.
  • As we constantly evolve our ability to extract contract data to fields with efficiency and precision, users can now send multiple areas of text to one long text field with the ability to cycle through text area locations by clicking the field multiple times.
  • We’ve refreshed the experience for creating regular expressions in the Heretik Viewer and now provide more customization options such as the color and case sensitivity.
  • Users now have advanced options when trying to auto-populate fields that already contain a value. We’ve also added an option to store the text of the section in which the regular expression result was found to a long text field of your choosing.
