We may have been a tad quiet recently but it's not because we were on summer vacation – we've been hard at work over the last few months on a number of new features while continuing to improve the platform with updates to the SenseML Editor and API. In this update, learn about how we’ve added support to convert PDFs to Excel, revamped the editor, enriched the API and PDF metadata, and enhanced our existing SenseML methods.

We may have been a tad quiet recently but it's not because we were on summer vacation – we've been hard at work over the last few months on a number of new features while continuing to improve the platform with updates to the SenseML Editor and API. 

In this update, learn about how we’ve added support to convert PDFs to Excel, revamped the editor, enriched the API and PDF metadata, and enhanced our existing SenseML methods. For the full list of changes, check out our changelog.

New Feature: Extract document data to spreadsheets

You can now download any document extraction as an Excel spreadsheet through the Sensible API! Say goodbye to other JSON to CSV/Excel converters because this new feature gives you a seamless workflow for going from a PDF to a well-structured spreadsheet. For more information, check out our docs

Beta feature: Zapier integration

We are now integrated with Zapier! Connect Sensible with your favorite tools such as Google Drive, Dropbox, and 5,000+ other integrations to automate your workflow. Contact support@sensible.so for an invite to the beta.

Improvement: Enhancements to the SenseML Editor

It’s now easier to write and test configurations:

  • Add comments to SenseML to help with configuration maintenance
  • Zoom and pan on documents to view small text more easily
  • Click to jump directly to your extracted fields. No more manually searching through the document for where your data is coming from!
  • View skewed documents both in their original state or in their deskewed state to help troubleshoot scanned documents

Improvement: Enriched API and PDF metadata

We added additional metadata and insights about the PDF available in the extraction, including: 

  • Coordinates for the bounding polygons for each cell in a table in high verbosity mode
  • Total page count for the portfolio in portfolio extractions
  • Metadata about the PDF such as creation date, author, and modified date in the extraction response

Improvement: Document Range offset

You can now offset the start of the Document Range method in order to capture content that precedes the anchor. This can be especially handy when the group of text that you want to extract is on multiple lines or isn't aligned across the row.

Improvement: Indexed tiebreakers

No more position limitations to your tiebreakers! You can now specify any integer value to pull out text based on its’ ordered position. This is particularly useful for rows and tables that contain more than 4 cells -- a format we've commonly seen in loss runs and Explanation of Benefits (EOBs).
