The User Settings dialog lets you configure your preferences for the SmartVault Connected Desktop. You can also use this feature to manage your scanners, backups, confirmations, engagements, extensions, and advanced user options.

Accessing the User Settings 

To access User Settings within the SmartVault Launchpad:

    Installing the SmartVault Connected Desktop automatically creates a SmartVault Launchpad shortcut on your desktop.

  2. Click SmartVault User Settings.



The Preferences tab lets you select if you want SmartVault automatically sign you in when you open the Connected Desktop app and customize the toolbar's background color.


If you use the default setting for the toolbar, it will match your current Windows theme.


The Scanners tab lets you configure the type of scanner you want to use for your SmartVault scanning, such as how SmartVault should capture the image file. In the Settings window, you can choose your default scanner, Resolution (dpi), and Image type (Grayscale, Black and White, or Color). In the Options section, you can select:

  • Auto-Adjust image brightness
  • Auto-select feeder when ready
