Set up Integrated Scanning

To set up Integrated ScanningIntegrated Scanning provides a secure, consistent, and easy way for users to scan documents to: their own email address, their own home folders, or other authorized email and folder destinations.:

  • set up at least one scan action

  • enable Integrated Scanning on a device

Step 1: Set up scan actions

Predefined scan actions or scanning workflows make the scanning process simpler and faster for your users. A scan action defines the following default settings for a scan job:

  • destination—whether the scanned document is directed to an email recipient, network folder, or cloud storage folder.

  • document details—file name and email subject (Scan to Email only).

  • input configuration—page orientation and duplex mode.

  • default output configuration—file type, DPI and color mode.

  • access—which users and user groups have access to the scan action.

You can create any number of scan actions to meet your needs.

Step 2: Enable Integrated Scanning for a device

For each scanning device, you must enable Integrated Scanning.


Ensure your Multifunction Device is configured for Integrated Scanning. For more information, see the embedded guide for the device.

    The Device Details page is displayed.
