If the following two conditions are met, the cloud storage widget is displayed on the Home screen of the user logged on the MyQ web interface:

To be able to store the outgoing scan file on Google Drive, the user has to be connected.

To connect to Google Drive, the user has to perform the following actions:

  1. Log in to the MyQ Web user interface with your user account.

  2. On the Cloud storage widget, click Connect. The Cloud storage dialog box appears.

  3. Click Continue with Google.

  4. Sign-in to Google Drive and confirm permissions. (When asked about the permissions, click Allow).

  5. The Google Drive connection status changes to Connected.

A single Google user account can be connected to only one server at a time. If the user wants to connect the account to another server, they need to remove MyQ Printing Solution from the connected applications. This can be done on the Apps with access to your account tab under My Account/Sign in & security/Apps with account access/MANAGE APPS.

Removing MyQ from Google Drive connected apps


If an admin has connected Google Drive to Easy Scan, but an individual user has not yet connected their personal account, they can still use Easy Scan with Google Drive set as the destination.

An email will be sent to the users email address allowing them to connect to Google Drive, after which their scanned document/s will be delivered there. This email is valid for 24 hours after the scan has taken place. This email also contains a secure link to directly download the scanned document/s.

In a case where a user attempts to use Easy Scan to send a file to Google Drive, but they are not connected, and there is no email address associated with that user, the user will receive an on-screen prompt to connect their cloud storage via the web interface and try again.
