One Drive: Saves the day as your portable scanner

1024 576 AVLA.net

The biggest problem with working from home is losing access to all the equipment you have in your office.

Such as your printer and scanner.

Sure, you could get a multi-function device installed at home. But if you only use it now and again, it’s just taking up space.

There’s a better way. Microsoft 365 jumps to the rescue with its OneDrive app.

Download the app to your mobile device or tablet, and it becomes a handheld scanner.

Just tap the scan icon, select ‘document’ and hit the white button as if you were taking a photo.

You can even sign or draw on the scanned document by selecting the pen icon.

Then tap ‘done’, enter a file name, and ‘save’ the document.

You can now find it in your OneDrive and share as you want. Easy!
