If you upload a PDF that contains multiple invoices, it can't be processed correctly by the system. Before it can processed, you need to split the PDF into separate files.

The WISK Web Portal has a built-in tool that makes it easy to split a PDF and upload those invoices individually.

Splitting a PDF

If you upload a PDF that has more than one page, you'll see the option to split it into multiple invoices. You'll need to do this if you've put more than one invoice from the same or different distributors into one file.

Selecting the PDF

To select a PDF to split into multiple invoices:

  1. On the Draft Invoices page, click the Details button beside an invoice

  2. Click Actions > Split PDF into multiple invoices

    Note: You'll only see this option if the PDF has multiple pages

Splitting Pages

  1. A window opens showing every page in the PDF. Click the scissors icon between any two pages to split them.

  2. As you split pages, it creates separate PDFs. In this example we've split the 5 page document into 3 PDFs. The red numbers on the bottom left of each page indicate its page number in the original PDF. The green numbers on the bottom right indicate the page number in the new PDFs to be created.

Reordering / Combining Pages

If you need to reorder or combine any pages in a PDF, just drag and drop a page over another.

If the pages were separate they'll combine together. If the pages were already together, you can adjust the order.

Finishing the Split

  1. When you've finished splitting the file into separate PDFs and ordering the pages as needed, click "Split PDF". Each invoice should be a separate PDF.

  2. The PDFs get split and uploaded as separate files so they can be processed. In this example you'll see the original upload is now three invoices.
