Scanning

Students may use the HP multifunction M577 in the Computer Resource Center (TMEC 225) or the HP multifunction M681 inTMEC 231c to scan documents directly to their email accounts.  These devices also support scanning to USB drive if desired.

 

How to scan from the HP Multi-function device using the Scan to Email option

1. Position the document(s) to be scanned either on the flatbed glass, or in the ADF (automatic document feeder). When using the flatbed, the document should be face-down (text side on the glass). When using the ADF, the documents should be placed with the text side facing up. There are also markings on both the flatbed and the ADF to denote document positioning.
2. Wake the device by tapping anywhere on the Control Panel screen, and/or tap the Home icon on the left.
3. Once at the Home screen, tap the purple Scan to Email icon.
