ScanSnap Folder is a useful tool that allows you to quickly and easily import scanned documents into your favorite applications – whether they are web-based, or on your Windows system. Here’s how it works:
Start by opening the application that you want to attach your scanned document to, and choose the folder where you want the documents to be saved. Then select “Attach” or “Browse”. Once the attachment window opens, select “ScanSnap Folder” from your computer – found on the left hand side of the window. Then turn on your scanner. When your scanner is on, you will see a notification indicating that ScanSnap Folder is now active.
Scan your document, name it, and then save it. Now that it is saved in ScanSnap Folder, you simply double-click on the document to upload it to your application.
Note that ScanSnap Folder is a temporary folder. Once you attach your scanned document to the application, it will be deleted after an allotted amount of time. If you would like to change the settings or have the document saved to a default folder, you can manage the settings from your ScanSnap Icon in your systems task tray, under “ScanSnap Folder Settings”.
