MVi Data Import allows the customer to import indexed-metadata files and associated data files and annotations into Laserfiche.
The product’s goal is to provide a common, flexible solution for importing customer data that has been exported from another enterprise content management system or another application.
The Data Import program uses data-specific plugins to parse various types of index files and retrieve the documents contained within them. Each document contains a list of indexed-metadata, represented as Tokens, which are used to place the document in Laserfiche with the desired path, name, template, field, and data file information.
The imported data can be a single bulk import (such as during a conversion) or an ongoing regular import (for regularly generated files). The import routine can be run as a service, from command-line, or manually through the GUI. Imported files are tracked and reports can be generated to summarize import statistics.
