Scan to folder - Coming on 22nd September 2014

Scan to folder is a service which allows you to place a document on one of our printer/photocopiers, have the photocopier scan it and create a PDF file from it, and then have that PDF sent to your H drive.

By default this service will transfer your chosen scanned file in PDF format directly to the your home or "H"drive in a newly created folder called "My Scans" within your Documents folder. The file will be autonamed in the following manner "usercode-date-time".

For further information about this exciting new service coming in September 2014 to student workareas and a limited number of staff departments.
