If you accidentally indexed a document to the wrong cabinet, you can MOVE the pages to a batch which allows you to index each page again.

NOTES:

  • Ensure the number of pages is correct or specify which pages to move or copy.

  • Leave the Target Application as the application displayed.

  • Leave the default Target Batch Name if you intend to index the images now or change the Name to anything that indicates the contents of this batch of images.

  • Ignore Index New Batch document.

    • If Move is not grayed out, click Move.

    • If Move is grayed out, click Copy.

  • The original document will still exist, and you will need to ask someone in your department with the ability to DELETE a document to delete the document indexed in error.
