Scan to folder

Scans can be saved directly to a shared folder on the file server Pelican. This option is useful if your document exceeds the size limit for sending by email.
Select "Pelican scans" from the Program tab as the destination. Files will be saved to \\\scans. This folder can be accessed by mapping a network drive to that location and providing your SBBS domain username and password. Remember to prefix your username with SBBS\
Mac users should connect to smb://

Please delete your scans from the shared folder once you have saved them elsewhere. Old files will be deleted without warning if the folder becomes full.

N.B. Anyone with an SBBS domain account can view scans saved to this location.


To change the file format, resolution etc. press the Scan Settings button on the screen and select the appropriate settings from the options displayed.

If you wish to add your own message to an emailed scan, press the Mode Check button and then select Email Setting on the screen. This gives you access to edit the subject and body text.

Press the Start button to scan and send the document.

Please log-out when you have finished.
