Major

  • IMPROVED: New Send Problem Document to Shabash dialog.

    We recommend you use this any time you can't process a document, or if the result is poor quality and not useful to you. You can launch the tool from the Merops: Home tab, on the Help menu. You'll be then taken through a series of screens to help you send all the relevant files and information quickly.

    1. Select the document, with suggestions from your process history: Select the document
    2. Choose the Standard Set, with suggestions based on the file you chose, as well as recently used Standard Sets: Choose the Standard Set
    3. Tell us what the problem is: Tell us what the problem is
    4. It will then tell you the latest we'll aim to return the file: we'll aim to return the file
    5. You can request we return the file sooner (no promises, but we'll do our best!): You can request we return the file sooner
    6. Merops will then create an email, with the chosen document, the Standard Set, the -Original file (if it exists), as well as the log file if the file failed to process, all attached.

      NB. Currently this tool builds an email in Outlook, and then you can add any additional notes before sending it. If you or your team do not use Outlook, please let me know, and we'll add another method.
