My PDFs all have different layouts, do I need different parsing rules for each?

The easiest way to set up Docparser is to create one document parser for each type of document (layout) which you want to parse. By using parsing rules capable of extracting data  from variable positions, you can even use this method if the layout of your documents vary slightly.

When setting up Docparser like this, it is mandatory to identify the layout of a document on your end before importing it to Docparser.

This method might however not be a good fit for your use-case. In some cases, identifying the document layout before importing the document might not be possible. Luckily, Docparser has a built in document classification and routing feature which allows you to process multiple document layouts with one single document parser.

In case you are not sure how to set up Docparser for your use-case, please refer to this  in-depth article which covers different approaches. If you still have questions, please don't hesitate to contact our support staff.
