ECMS - Create an Application Plan‌

This document explains how to create an application plan.


Create an application plan‌

Perceptive Content stores the information you learn, using one of the application methods on a business application, in a container called an application plan.

An application plan contains one or more screens, where each screen represents a learned screen or window in your business application. When you create a screen, you capture data from your business application screen to create document index keys, called document keys, to link the image to the record in your business application.
