Restaurant Managers can upload relevant documents to Documents to Process directly from the R365 Red App. For vendors that only provide physical copies of an invoice or credit memo, Users can simply take a photo of the document with their phone and directly upload it to the system. With this simple functionality, Users can upload any important documents with ease and then enter the details of each transaction at a later time.

It is important to note that the photos and/or files uploaded will be saved as a combined PDF in Documents to Process. If photos and/or files should be separated, ensure to repeat this process for each.



Uploading Documents to Process is available to users with either one of the following permissions:

  • Accounts Payable → Docs to Process → Upload Docs to Process Documents
  • Food → Docs to Process → Upload Docs to Process Documents

Upload Files

Users can directly upload files from their device or take a photo of each document and upload them to the R365 Red App. Follow the process below to ensure that all documents are uploaded successfully.

Step 1: Upload a Photo or File

After logging in to the R365 Red App, open the menu and tap the Upload Files button from the mobile navigation menu. This will open a menu where the user can select whether to take a photo, upload a photo, or upload files.

When Take Photos is chosen, users will use their device camera to take photos of any necessary documents. If taking a picture for the first time, allow R365 to gain access to the camera by selecting Ok. Aim the camera appropriately and click the shutter button to take a photo. 

The screen will appear where the user can take a photo of a document. Once the photo is taken, four icons will be displayed around the image:

Deletes the selected photo. 
Enables users to take additional photos. All photos will be listed at the bottom of the screen and can be selected and deleted before uploading all photos.

Once all the necessary photos are taken, click the checkmark icon to upload the photo(s) to the Create New Doc screen.

Navigate to the correct file(s). Tap a file to select it. Users can select multiple files, if needed. Once all the necessary files are selected, tap Open.

Option 4: Scan Document

When Scan Document is selected, users will be able to use the device camera to scan documents. This function is similar to taking photos. However, when scanning documents, the camera will detect the borders of the document to assist users in  taking clear, visible photos. 

A blue border detector will appear over the document being scanned. Once the shutter button is clicked, the user will briefly see the scanned version of the image before the camera resets to take additional photos. If needed, users can continue scanning documents. Tap Save to finish scanning documents. 

Once documents have been scanned, a document image will appear in the bottom left corner of the screen. Users can tap this document to open up the document manager. From this screen, users can swipe left and right to view the scanned items. If needed, the images can be retaken or edited. 

From this screen, users can make the following edits:

Retake the selected image. This will open up the document scanner camera once again. The new scanned document will replace the existing one. 
Enables the user to crop the document or adjust the edges of the document. 
Enables the user to change the coloring of the scanned document. Users can either make it color, grayscale, black & white, or have it exist as the photo version.

Changes the orientation of the document. This can be used to turn the document horizontally on either side or flip the document upside down. 
Deletes the scanned document.
