Scanning from an eduPrint printer
There are three ways to scan in eduPrint:
- Scan is a simple scan app that has fewer features than the other two, but is easily accessed from the start page. The documents can only be scanned to your own e-mail address. This feature also allows people without a university account to scan.
- The Skanner function allows you to scan documents to e-mail as pdf or image file. When you scan with this app, you can also choose which email address to scan to (other than your own).
- Sharescan is a more advanced scan app with more features than Scan and Skanner that also allows you to scan to folder and the cloud storage solution, Box.net. With Sharescan the documents are scanned as OCR, ie the pdf file becomes searchable and you can copy text from the pdf file and paste into other documents.

Frequently asked questions about scanning
How large documents / how many pages can I scan?
The size of documents that are possible to scan to e-mail is limited by the size of e-mails that the University's mail servers can receive. The limit at Uppsala University is 40MB. The page amount of 40MB is not possible to determine as it is dependent on what the documents contains such as pictures, chosen resolution when scanning etc.
If there are many pages to scan, one option may be to scan to any of the other services, folders or cloud storage, as these services have no file size limit.
What is ‘scanning directly to cloud storage’?
Using cloud storage scanning, you can send scanned documents directly to a cloud storage service from the printer. Initially, the only service supported for employees is Box.com (Sunet Box), but the services supported may change in the future.
When scanning to the cloud, keep in mind what information may and should be stored there. This varies depending on your role and the cloud service you are using. If you are unsure, contact the IT Service Desk.
