Compass Capture Introduction
COMPASS CAPTURE INTRODUCTION
Compass Capture is distributed scanning software that allows agencies to scan and return docu‐
ments at the point of contact with the client. Caseworkers at the front desk, for example, can “capture” and immediately return document drop‐offs, saving postage and other costs. The doc‐
uments are automatically routed electronically to the appropriate caseworker for their use within seconds of scanning. Documents scanned in Capture can also quickly and easily be retrieved from the Document Man‐
agement System (DMS). Launching Capture
To launch Capture, click on the Capture icon from your desktop (Fig. 7.1).

To search for a client or case using the Search button (searching on multiple keyword entries):
1. Click the Keywords tab in the Search Criteria area.
2. Enter several types of known client data in the appropriate text entry boxes (e.g., SSN, Compass Number, Last Name or First Name) (See Fig. 7.6).

SCANNING A DOCUMENT
1. Insert the document you want to scan into the scanner. Make sure your document(s) is upside‐down and backward.

• Colored documents (such as a driver’s license)
• Low‐quality black and white documents
• Documents that have highlighting (except yellow)
• Documents with low or high quality photographs
Depending on what Northwoods or your System Administrator has configured, the Color button may or may not reset once you’ve scanned. If it resets, you will need to select the Color option again. •
•
Duplex will scan both sides of the document and automatically drop blank pages.
Drop Color will remove a specified color from black and white documents. For example, selecting Drop Color (red) will remove any red, or red‐like, marks on the black and white document. Colors you can drop include:
