Set up a scan inbox

To set up a Scan Inbox

  1. Open File > Options and in the Options dialog box, select Automation > Server Connections > Scan Inbox > Quick Connect.
  2. Select Enable Scan Inbox Notification to have a notification shown when new files are placed in your scan inbox folder. The notification icon appears in the notification area at the right of the Windows taskbar.
  3. Specify the source for scanning:
    • Automatic Inbox Agent: (ShareScan only) browse for a location. Contact your system administrator if necessary.

    • Home directory: Type in a path or contact your system administrator.

    • Manual: Set the source folder manually on your computer.

    Note If your work environment uses Kofax eCopy ShareScan network scanning, you can manage Quick Connect Settings as well as including enabling notifications, selecting a folder and specifying additional Quick Connect folders.

  4. Use Open Options to set how to access incoming scans:
    • Browse Inbox: Click Scan Inbox to show all files in a separate dialog window.

    • Open Next: Click Scan Inbox to open the latest file in a new window.

    • Auto Delete Document: Keep all scanned PDF or TIFF documents or delete the files from the Scan Inbox folder after you have opened them in Power PDF. File deletion happens after a save prompt.
