Scanning into Evernote is a great way to bridge your physical and digital worlds. If you’re anything like me, then you probably have pieces of paper, business cards, documents, and precious napkins thrown across every available surface. Unlike me, you probably don’t have a compulsive urge to scan everything within arm’s reach. But you could! All you have to do is set up your scanner just right, and you too will be one click away from having all your stuff in Evernote.
Scan to Evernote utility
Just in time for partner month, the great folks at Fujitsu created a nifty configuration utility that will set your Fujitsu ScanSnap Scanner to the optimal settings for use with Evernote. For now, it’s Windows-only. We hope to have a Mac version soon. Download the utility »
Setup is quick and easy:
- Make sure you have the ScanSnap Manager software installed
- Next, download and run the utility
The utility will create two profiles in the ScanSnap Manager: a “Document Scan” profile for created PDF scanned documents and a “Notes Scan” profile for everything else, including anything with handwriting.
Manual setup instructions are available here: http://evernote.com/fujitsu
No ScanSnap? No problem.
If you don’t have a ScanSnap, there’s a good chance that you can still configure your scanner to work with Evernote. The general idea is to have your scanner send scans to Evernote.exe (PC) or Evernote.app (Mac). The step-by-step instruction may vary from device to device.
