Property Groups

Each document type, in AIDA, is the set of properties (i.e., data) that different documents have in common and that you intend to extract.

Property groups further simplify the use of properties by matching them to a single identifying requirement useful to your operations. In this way, in addition to making property management visually simpler, AIDA also allows you to potentially match property groups to a specific destination of data and its use.

In our experience, in more than 90% of cases, each type of document should contain: 2 anagraphic groups (the sender and the recipient), 1 Document Specification group that identifies the document uniquely among its peers, or 2 if the document is transactional and contains financial data, and 1 group Table for any table to be extracted.

Creating a property group is simple and guided: choose from a group type proposed by AIDA, select the category that best suits your needs, choose the group name and (possibly) a description. Finally, choose from the proposed properties which ones you want to use and whether to make them mandatory.

Once the group is created, the properties can be added, modified or deleted according to your needs.

These are the types of groups that AIDA offers you:

Personal data

With this group you create properties useful for identifying a sender or recipient, such as a person's name or a company name.

Document specifications

With this group you create properties that uniquely identify the individual document, such as an invoice number or the date of a contract.


With this group you configure how AIDA should read and extract table rows from your document by defining the columns.

This group does not involve the creation of any properties.
