Important:

The PaperCut MF home screen is not displayed if Integrated Scanning is not configured.

Scan Actions screen

When a user selects Scan on the Multifunction Device home screen, the Scan Actions screen is displayed. This screen lists all of the Scan Actions available to that user, as configured by the SysAdmin.

Users can securely scan and send documents (without additional authentication) to:

  • their own email address

  • their own network home folder

  • a cloud storage provider

Scan Details screen

Scan Settings screen

The default settings for the selected scan action are displayed. An administrator can select whether or not users can change these default settings. Scanning is very simple with these predefined settings; users simply need to tap Start.

If you have more than one scan job, or more pages to scan than will fit in the feeder, you can select the Prompt for more pages checkbox. If selected, the device displays the Scan More or Finish screen after a successful scan.

Scan More or Finish screen

The Scan More or Finish allows you to:

  • add more pages to the scan file before it is sent
  • scan another document without having to return to the Home screen.

Document orientation on the MFD

When scanning, it's important to remember which way to place the pages. If a document is scanned in an unexpected orientation, such as sideways or upside down, the OCR functionality will not be able to read the text.

If a scan action is set to:

  • portrait—PaperCut MF assumes the short edge of the page is the top of the page.
  • landscape—PaperCut MF assumes the top of the page is the long side.
