To scan a document
To scan a document to a file, choose “Workflow Scanning” from the main menu. You will be asked to log onto the machine, you want to use your network ID (email without the @stmarksschool.org) and password (same as email password).
If you logged in correctly, you name will appear in the top/right of the screen. Select “Scan2ScanDrop”, if you are scanning a two-sided document using the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) select “2-sided Scanning” and choose “2-sided”. You can scan mulitple pages of a document using the ADF and they will be saved as a single document. By default the scanned documents will be saved as a PDF file named “DOC000.pdf, DOC001.pdf, DOC003.pdf, etc.”. You can change the type and name of the file being saved by going to the filing options tab and selecting “File Name” to enter a new name and “File Format” to change from a PDF to a JPG or TIFF file type.
Once you have setup your options, you are now ready to scan. Press the large green button to the right of the touch panel to start the scanning job. Your file will be stored on the scan server on the network.
To log off the machine, select your name in the green box and select “Log Out”.
