Brightidea's OCR

With Brightidea OCR, users can complete a handwritten Submission Form, and Admins can take a photo, or scan the Submission, and load it into an Initiative (to enable this beta feature, please contact your Brightidea Account Manager).

The OCR form has the following fields:

  • Employee ID (The 'Employee ID" field is not uploaded to the Submission, it is only used internally by Admins to help attribute the Submission to the correct user)
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Title
  • Description
  • Any images are attached to submission when importing a scanned submission.



The Initiative Admin(s) can upload the completed forms and load the Submissions. Navigate to Site Setup > Ideas > Ideas and download the OCR form. At this time, English, Spanish and Portuguese forms are available.

Upload the completed OCR form under "Import Scanned Idea". Note: Imported files must be JPG files.


Additional Note: The OCR form for this import can also be downloaded below.

    Are other submission languages ever going to become available?
