How to Scan Into Web-Based Applications (PC Only) with ScanSnap

There have been a lot of great ScanSnap questions from our readers, but one of the most recent inquiries was how to scan into web-based applications, such as email or cloud services.

Here is how to easily scan your documents into web-based applications:

Start by opening up the application. In the example shown below, the application will be Box.


Once your Box account is open, click on ‘Upload files’. When the dialogue window appears, select ‘ScanSnap Folder’. See the image below.


Once ‘ScanSnap Folder’ is selected, a notification at the bottom right-hand corner of your screen will say, ‘ScanSnap Folder is activated’. Now, place the documents in the ADF of your ScanSnap scanner and push the blue ‘Scan’ button. When the documents are done scanning, you are able to rename the document and then save it.


Your document will appear in ScanSnap Folder. Double click on the file to select it and it will automatically upload into Box.


You can use ScanSnap Folder for a variety of web-based applications. Check out the video below to see how you can use ScanSnap Folder with Gmail!
