Scanning Documents Using the SmartVault Inbox and a Fujitsu ScanSnap Scanner


You can scan documents directly into a secure folder in SmartVault using the SmartVault Inbox and a Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner. Document storage and upload have never been more accessible.

For a list of supported scanners, see Supported Scanners.

Scanning Documents 

  1. Create SmartVault ScanSnap profiles for your Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner.
  2. Right-click on your ScanSnap icon in the system tray and select Scan Button Settings.


    If your scanner is not plugged in, the icon will appear with a red no symbol around it. Your scanner must have a connection to be used with the SmartVault Inbox.

  3. Under Profile, select SmartVault Inbox, then click Apply and then OK.
  4. Open the SmartVault Launchpad and sign in if prompted.
  5. Click SmartVault Inbox.
  6. Select the All Folders tab.
  7. Navigate to the folder to which you're uploading documents and click 
  8. Leave the Upload Documents window open. Place your document into the Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner, and then press the Scan button on the scanner.
  9. Depending on which SmartVault tools you currently have open, a dialog window appears asking for the destination of your scan. Click Inbox.
  10. The Upload Documents window now contains a preview of your scan, a file name, and a description for the scanned document.
  11. Click Accept if the information is correct. Otherwise, correct the name and description information and then click Accept.

SmartVault uploads the scanned document.


If you want to create full-text searchable PDFs when scanning, ensure you enable Optical Character Recognition (OCR) capabilities after creating your SmartVault Inbox ScanSnap profile. For more information, see Configure a Fujitsu ScanSnap Scanner.
