Scanner Button Integration

Using "Scan Button" on your scanner
You can use your scanner’s scan buttons to save scanned files directly into Docsvault. Almost all scanner brands have their own application running in the system tray that monitors the scanner and allows users to customize the scan button functionality on their scanner along with many other scan parameters. You should be able to set Docsvault’s Send To executable as a destination for your scanned files in your scanner’s application. By default this Send To executable is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Docsvault <edition>\Client\SendToDV.exe.


Below we will display an example on how to do this using the Fujitsu ScanSnap scanners. Note that if you have scanner from some other brand your software will have different options but following will help you understand how to set Docsvault as a target application for your scanner.



Step 1:
Right click on the ScanSnap Manager icon in Windows system tray and select  ‘Scan Button Settings’





Step 2:


In the ScanSnap Manager dialog that opens up, click the “Profile” drop down menu and select “Add Profile…” to create a new scan profile

Add a profile name, for example, “Docsvault B&W PDF” and click “OK” to create a new profile


Note: You can create multiple profiles in this way for different types of documents if desired




Step 3:


Uncheck the ‘Use Quick Menu’ in the Scan Snap Manager dialog that opens up. This will unlock the “Application” tab which is required for next steps.




Step 4:


Click the “Add or Remove” button under the “Application” tab

In the “Add or remove application” dialog that opens up, click on the “Add…” button

In the “Application Settings” dialog that opens up, click on Browse and select the SendToDV.exe file located in Docsvault client program folder
(by default located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Docsvault <edition>\Client\)

Write ‘Docsvault’ in the “Application Name” text box and click “OK” to apply changes





Step 5:

Now select the Docsvault application from the “Application” drop down menu and click “OK”




From now on, when this profile is selected, using your scanner button you will see a Docsvault navigation dialog to import scanned files directly into Docsvault.
