AI Builder Business Card scan control is available now in Dynamics 365

Posted by

Business card scan is part of the 2019 release wave 2 plan and will get General availability in October 2019. But the AI Builder Business Card control is already available in Dynamics 365 right now.

Just add a single line of text field to the Contact entity (for instance) form and select the new AI Builder Business Card control.

You can map the output fields to the fields on the Contact form.

Now publish the form and open it in the Unified Interface. This feature is available in the Unified Interface only.

Just by clicking on the image, the explorer will open to upload a scan file or you could use the camera on a mobile device to make a picture of the business card. Once it’s added, the processing is started and the output is added to the mapped fields on the form.

So when I upload a test file, some of the mapped fields are filled out with the right data but not all.
It’s not perfect yet but fun to play with. Let’s feed the algorithm for better results.

Big thanks to Oswin Kroon who showed/shared this at the CEProNL user group meetup yesterday.
