The Workflow Scanning App allows you to scan an original document, distribute, and archive the scanned image file. The Workflow Scanning feature simplifies the task of scanning many multi-page documents and saving the scanned image files in one or more file locations.

Note: The system administrator must set up this feature before you can use it.

The Workflow Scanning App enables you to scan documents using pre-defined settings to a range of file destinations quickly and easily. There are several workflow options:

  • Distribution workflows enable you to scan documents to one or more file destinations. File destinations include an FTP site, a website, and a network server. You can add fax destinations to workflows too.
  • Scan to Mailbox enables you to scan documents to public or private mailbox folders on the printer hard drive.
  • Scan to Home enables you to scan documents to a personal Home folder on your network.
  • Scan to USB enables you to scan documents to a connected USB Flash drive.

Notes:

  • To scan original documents to a file destination associated with a contact in the address book, see the Related Content section for additional information.
  • To scan original documents to an email address, see the Related Content section for additional information.

    • For multiple, single, or 2-sided pages, use the duplex automatic document feeder. Remove all staples or paper clips from the pages.

Adjust the paper guides so that they fit against the document originals.

    • In the Workflow Scanning App, for a selected workflow, you can add more file destinations from the predefined list.
