eDoc: Quick Scan Setup
Quick Scan allows you to scan documents from the scanner bed directly into WebPT without having to save the file to your computer first. Browse allows you to upload documents saved to your computer (this article explains how). You need to download and install the TWAIN plugin, which allows Quick Scan to work with your internet browser.
If you are using Mac OS X, click here to view the TWAIN installation video.
For best results, we recommend using:
- The latest version of Chrome or Firefox.
- A scanner that is TWAIN-compliant (this is a requirement for Quick Scan to function). Note: NEATDesk, Fujitsu ‘ScanSnap’ & Epson ‘Workforce’ & (ALL) Brother scanner models have known compatibility issues.
- A scanner connected by USB (Wireless Network scanners may NOT work with Quick Scan).
- The latest version of Microsoft Windows or Mac OS X.
- A file size under 4mb (this is the largest file size eDoc can upload. For longer documents, you can break the file down into fewer pages or lower image quality.
Important: Attempting to upload a larger file will generate the following error message: 'An error occurred while trying to upload your document error - 2003 message Http process error.' For longer documents, you can break the file down into fewer pages or lower image quality.
