I was just curious if there was a picture-taking function that Glide can connect to?
I am mainly using this app for the CRM to build a better mobile contact list. Often times I will get a business card, but sometimes I just get to take a picture of their company ID badge. I want to be able to create a new contact and if they have a card, take and store a picture of it, and then OCR scan the data right into my database. If I can only take a picture of their ID badge, at least get their name, company, and facial picture off of the badge, and I could then manually add the rest.
Hello, according to what I read, what you need is to fill out a form for each client, enter this link, copy this template and modify it to your liking, you can enter from your phone and take a photo and add data from your clients that you can then see in the glide database or from your cell phone whenever you want, HAPPY BEGINNING
He needs the images to be OCRed, so it’s more advanced than that.
I also had apps with OCR function in the past, and the variety of inputs made it a huge challenge. Probably you can get the name and the company by OCRing, then analyze the output text and get them, but the “facial picture” is something I have not done before. OCR is character recognition so it should output text, I’m not sure if we have something that can have an image as its output.
Is there a way to isolate which text it pulls from an image? I would like to take a picture of a restaurant menu and be able to create rows for each dish, where the user no longer needs to manually type in the name, description and price. Would this be possible?
This is great and I go the Google api working. It works great! But how do we now differentiate the data into names and business names etc. It looks like Google natural language model can do this. But I can’t seem to connect that with this. I tried my Isaas software integrately. No luck there. I can get the API to fire and pass the OCRd image data. But I’m lost when trying to make a new contact other than all the info in one big text box.
it looks like AZURE works much better as it differentiates the data into name and business name etc, but I am pretty new to microsoft azure, I thought I had it setup right but when I copy the keys to glide API and try to run it, it says permission denied. any help is appreciated
also I did setup and test the azure form recognizer studio and it does work excellently, just how do we integrate this with glide and get those fields to use to create a new contact?
lets connect the dots team!
to me there is a missing link in the glide app as it never asks for the endpoint of my created azure app
I got it working with azure form recognizer rest API
Had to use a ISaaS service like integromat etc to make my own rest API PoST and GET. But it works amazing. Now my users can take picture of business card and it auto generated all contacts into the correct fields. Simply awesome!
