Scanning by a single touch. After the user taps this action, the page is immediately scanned to a predefined destination. You can define multiple destinations where the scanned document is sent to, and set scan parameters in MyQ.
For information on how to configure the Easy Scan action and define its destinations and parameters, check Easy Scan settings in the MyQ Print Server guide.
If enabled on the server, users can change their scan settings from the terminal screen.
You can also create new custom parameters to be used in the scan metadata, or as parts of file names, addresses, subjects and email bodies, and as paths to folders, passwords to folders etc. You can find further details in Create custom parameters on the MyQ Print Server guide.
OCR (Optical Character Recognition) can be used with Easy Scan, by creating OCR profiles and enabling users to select them on the embedded terminal. You can find further details in OCR on the MyQ Print Server guide.
