Endorser Settings

Use Endorser

When selected, scanned cheques are endorsed. That is, text is printed on the back of each cheque as it is scanned. The cheques are endorsed using the Line Position (mm), Endorser String and Append Date settings configured in the Configuration Settings. However, when Global Endorser Override is selected, the Endorser String and Append Date configured below are used when this Scan Setting is used. (The Line Position (mm) is always used.)

When cleared, scanned cheques are not endorsed. That is, no text is printed on the back of the cheque as it is scanned.

Global Endorser Override

When selected, the text configured in this window in the Endorser string is printed on the back of each scanned cheque instead of the Endorser String configured in the Configuration Settings window.

Endorser String

Enter the text you want printed on the back of each scanned cheque.

Append date

Select Append Date if you want today’s date appended to the Endorser String printed on the back of each cheque scanned today.

Storage

Scanned Images Folder

Displays the path to the folder which is used to temporarily keep the scanned images until they are Stored. Click the … button to browse to a different folder in which to keep scanned images until they are Stored.

Brightness and Contrast

Brightness

Front – select the Brightness setting for the front of the cheque.

Back – select the Brightness setting for the back of the cheque.

Selecting a higher number for the Brightness makes the scanned image lighter. Selecting a lower number for the Brightness makes the image darker.

Contrast

Front – select the Contrast setting for the front of the cheque.

Back – select the Contrast setting for the back of the cheque.

Selecting a higher number for the Contrast makes the scanned image contrast stronger. Selecting a lower number for the Contrast reduces the contrast.

Endorsing

Endorser String

Enter the text you want printed on the back of each scanned cheque.

Line Position (mm)

Enter the distance (in millimetres) from the left edge of the back of the cheque, where you want the Endorser String to start.

Append Date

Select Append Date if you want today’s date appended to the Endorser String printed on the back of each cheque scanned today.

Pocket

Rejected MICR Pocket

Enter a value for the cheque scanner pocket to be used for rejected cheques.

Cheques are rejected when MICR data is not detected on a cheque.

Note: This option is dimmed and unavailable when the connected cheque scanner does not have multiple pockets.

Pocket Waterfall

Select this option when you want the connected cheque scanner to fill one pocket with scanned cheques before filling a subsequent pocket with scanned cheques.

When this option is cleared, the scanner fills one pocket with scanned cheques and then stops. A window is displayed informing you a pocket is full. You will not be able to resume scanning until the full pocket is emptied and you then click OK on the window.

Note: This option is dimmed and unavailable when the connected cheque scanner does not have multiple pockets.

 

Auto Jog Before Scanning

Some cheque scanners support the jog feature. Static electricity in an office can cause the cheques to stick together in the feeder, causing problems when the cheques are scanned. The jog feature helps to prevent the cheques from sticking to each other.

Select a non-zero value for the number of seconds you want the scanner to jog the cheques in the feeder before commencing scanning. The maximum value is 10 seconds.

Note: This option is dimmed and unavailable when the connected cheque scanner does not support the jog feature.

Cheque Field Mappings

When the provided MICR CFTs are used in a Data Definition, those fields are automatically mapped to the MICR fields in Cheque Scan (see “Data Definition with MICR Fields” for an example). However, if you have a Data Definition to which you want to map the scanned MICR fields, you can use the Cheque Field Mapping window to do this.

Click Cheque Field Mapping and in the window, scroll down the list to the required Data Definition then select the fields you want to use.

image

In the above example, the Data Definition Deposit Check has seven fields, three of which are mapped to the cheque’s Account Number, Cheque Number and Amount MICR fields.

Note: Cheque Field mappings are stored on the server and are therefore available to all users who have access to the selected Data Definition.
