On the Parameters tab, you can set the scanned file's parameters, such as resolution and format. You can select from a number of 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.

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 screen.

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 properties panel, uncheck the Prohibit change of value option (checked by default) and Save.

Limitations:

Continuous scan - If a scan is canceled by tapping the back arrow, canceled by pressing the cancel button or if a user logs out, the MFP sends scanned documents up to that point. The MFP does not discard the scanned documents. A notification about the scanned job contains no information regarding the number of scanned pages. Continuous scan is possible only from the glass. It is not supported if the scan is from the ADF.

Scan cancellation - If a single-page file format, such as jpeg, tiff, single PDF, etc., is selected, then scanned pages will be sent and will be recorded in the job_log. If multi-page file format is selected, all including scanned pages are canceled (Information obtained from Epson support).

ADF scan - If a scan is canceled by tapping the cancel button or if a user logs out, the MFP sends scanned documents up to that point. The MFP does not discard the scanned documents. A notification about the scanned job contains no information regarding the number of scanned pages.
