7025 Questions about Scanning - File Naming and Prompt Skipping

1. I'd like to know if there is a way to skip the prompt that comes up after a scan asking if "Done", "Cancel", "Add To Job", when scanning with the flatbed.

 

2. I'd like to know what the code would be to automatically make the printer name part of a filename when scanning to a folder. For example, if you use [Date&Time] or something like that, it'll put the timestamp as part of the filename. Is there a similar code for putting the printers name into the filename.

 

3. If you scan multiple pages and you want a separate pdf created for each page, right now it'll put all those PDF's into one folder, within the folder you were scanning in to. For example, say I scan to a folder called TEST. When I scan 3 pages using the document feeder and have it set to create multiple pdf's (one PDF for each page). The'll show up inside of a folder that's inside of the TEST folder. So something like this.

 

\TEST\thisIsTheFoldername-date\000001.pdf

\TEST\thisIsTheFoldername-date\000002.pdf

\TEST\thisIsTheFoldername-date\000003.pdf

 

Where I want them to just show up in the \TEST folder like this

 

\TEST\000001.pdf

\TEST\000002.pdf

\TEST\000003.pdf

 

Thanks for any help on these.

Re: 7025 Questions about Scanning - File Naming and Prompt Skipping

1. I'd like to know if there is a way to skip the prompt that comes up after a scan asking if "Done", "Cancel", "Add To Job", when scanning with the flatbed. It's a feature request, but they haven't stated if they are developing it yet, It would be less frustrating if it did not also happen on JPG, where by spec, it is impossible to have another page anyway. <grumble, grumble,grumble>

 

 

2. I'd like to know what the code would be to automatically make the printer name part of a filename when scanning to a folder. For example, if you use [Date&Time] or something like that, it'll put the timestamp as part of the filename. Is there a similar code for putting the printers name into the filename. This cannot be done, but since the name of the printer never changes, you could just add it to the filename in the defaults.

 

3. If you scan multiple pages and you want a separate pdf created for each page, right now it'll put all those PDF's into one folder, within the folder you were scanning in to. For example, say I scan to a folder called TEST. When I scan 3 pages using the document feeder and have it set to create multiple pdf's (one PDF for each page). The'll show up inside of a folder that's inside of the TEST folder. So something like this.

 

\TEST\thisIsTheFoldername-date\000001.pdf

\TEST\thisIsTheFoldername-date\000002.pdf

\TEST\thisIsTheFoldername-date\000003.pdf

 

Where I want them to just show up in the \TEST folder like this

 

\TEST\000001.pdf

\TEST\000002.pdf

\TEST\000003.pdf

 

This also cannot be done, and it is that way intentionally, the folder is created to contain the job, this way when Gary does his scan at the printer and doesn't go retrieve it for 30 minutes, it means he won't have to sort through Jacobs single scan that is taking up 273 files in the folder. Which is why it only creates the folder for single page files
