Easy Scan

Easy Scan allows you to scan with a single touch. After you tap this action, the page is immediately scanned to a predefined destination. Your administrator can define multiple destinations where the scanned document can be sent to by setting up multiple Easy Scan actions (e.g. Easy Scan to Email, Easy Scan to Folder, Easy Scan to OneDrive, etc.).

Once your administrator has defined destinations you can use for Easy Scan, you will see these destinations listed on the Home screen of your MyQ Web Interface, with an indication of whether or not the storage location is Connected. If the location is not yet connected, simply click Connect and follow the prompts to enter the storage’s password and complete the connection.


If your admin has connected a storage destination to Easy Scan, but you have not yet connected your personal account by entering a password, you can still use Easy Scan with this storage set as the destination.

An email will be sent to your email address allowing you to connect to the destination, after which your 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.

The administrator can also set the scan’s parameters and may allow you to change them before scanning.

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.
