How to extract field info from PDF documents and populate the SharePoint Online List

Good day all!

I have a request to extract some relevant data from PDF version of a form (from SiteDocs) and be able to populate the SharePoint Online list. At first, my thinking was to export the PDF to Word and use a Word Template that has the relevant fields identified. Then probably use Flow to do that copying step to SharePoint Online List.

 

Currently,what I know is that SiteDocs does not have an API to connect to SharePoint unless someone knows how.

 

Thanks!

That is the kind of task that AI Builder was designed for.  Take a look at the following article

Sweet! I'll give this a try on the weekend (if I have access to AI Builder) and report back.

If you don't have access to AI Builder, the Encodian connector provides a zonal extraction action, check out the blog post on the community blog - https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Flow-Community-Blog/Extract-data-from-documents-with-M...
