On the Destinations tab of the Easy Scan action node properties, you can define where the scanned file is sent.

To add a new destination, click +Add. The Destination panel opens where you can set the target destination.

Depending on the selected destination type, the panel contains the General, Parameters and Advanced sections.

General section

  • Type - Select the destination type from the drop-down. Available options: Cloud storage, Custom destination, Email, FTP, Fax Server, Folder, Secured link, User’s email, User’s storage.

  • Filename Template - Here you can select the Default template or create a Custom template of the scanned file name.

    • Default - The default filename template is %username%_%scanId%. You can also select to Allow to edit filename so users can customize the filename on the terminal.

    • Custom - The text of the template can be combined with MyQ parameters to provide additional information about the scanned file. The following parameters are available: %username%, %fullname%, %timestamp%, %date%, %time%, %originalSubject%, %ipaddress%, %scanId%, %usernotes%, %printerName%, %location%, %serialNumber%, %assetNo%, %printerContact%, %counter%.

  • Title - Add a title for the destination.
