There are several ways that you can use for importing/uploading documents to AlgoDocs. One of the simplest and straightforward ways is to upload your documents manually. However, there are other automated ways for importing your documents that we discuss below.
Uploading documents to AlgoDocs manually
AlgoDocs has an easy to use File Manager that you can use for organizing your folders, subfolders and documents. You can upload your documents manually in file manager by right clicking on any folder to which you wish to upload a document. Select Upload in context menu and a new window will appear for uploading your documents. When uploading your documents you need to specify the extractor for these documents. As soon as documents are uploaded AlgoDocs begins processing them immediately based on the extractor you specified during upload.
Importing documents from cloud storage providers and other integration platforms
AlgoDocs offers multiple cloud storage providers for you to integrate with your account and get your documents imported from them automatically. For example, you can add a Google Drive or Dropbox integration to your AlgoDocs account. AlgoDocs automatically fetches your documents from cloud storage providers every 3-5 minutes.
