Documentation is an essential component for reporting / documenting the work done. Manual document formatting might lead to some minor human errors which would remain unnoticed for most of the time. Documents like project report, research papers, thesis etc. often require a certain set of rules and standards which needs to be followed strictly. If the formatting is not done according to those rules, it might even result in rejection of the document. Automation of document formatting will help in solving these problems. Automation helps in speeding up the documentation process by automatically making corrections in the user’s document by comparing it against a template document. The template document will have the formatting rules to be followed and using which the user’s document can be validated and verified. Thus this process would not just eliminate minor human errors but also reduce a lot of human effort and time. The users can access the automation tool through a web application interface which would allow them to upload and format the document based on a particular template and also allows the user to create new custom templates.
