On the Parameters tab, you can set the scanned file's parameters, such as resolution and format. You can select from several options for each parameter.

There are predefined parameters, but you can also create your own parameters.

All parameters are dependent on the particular printing device type. Therefore, some values might not be available.

If the parameter’s Value is set to Default in the MyQ web administrator interface, the terminal will replace it with the device’s default value. If the device’s default value cannot be mapped to MyQ, Default will be displayed.

Predefined Easy Scan Parameters

Some parameters (e.g., resolution, color) significantly influence the scanned file's size. For example, a combination of higher resolution and full color will dramatically increase the file size.

You can allow users to change their scan settings from the terminal’s screen.

Easy Scan parameters on the terminal

To do this, you have to modify the settings of the particular parameter on the Parameters tab on the Easy Scan action node properties panel. Open the parameter’s properties panel, uncheck the Prohibit change of value option (checked by default) and Save.

Predefined Parameters

Each parameter has a Default option. If selected, the actual values are taken from the default scan settings of the printing device and are displayed on the terminal. If the device’s default values cannot be mapped to the MyQ scan profile value, Default will be displayed.
