Q. Network Scanning
What is it?
Your scanner can be configured to send files of scanned documents over the network to other computers on the network.
How does it help?
The folder where the scans are received is then shared so it is accessible from other computers on the network. This eliminates the need to manually move files from one machine to another via a flash-drive, for example, in order to send them through Odyssey.
If you have a stand-alone scanner (usually also a copier), you will probably need to ask IT for help. Otherwise, check the manual for the specific device. If you have a smaller scanner, you only need to share the folder where the scans are stored. Note: it is important to use the same drive letter when mapping the network drive from additional computers to the folder with scans. See the following screen shot for a visual explanation.
The mapped drive needs to be the same letter on all computers.
Remember to use the ILLiad transaction number as the file name when scanning.
These options are usually turned off by default.
