Scanning multi page documents to individual pdfs.

Operating System: Windows 10

Hello.

Am using Workcentre 7855 machines. I need to scan batches of multi page documents to pdf but need one pdf per document. 

Eg if I have ten x two page documents I want ten x two page pdfs to be produced. Seems simple enough. However all I seem to be able to do is produce one x twenty page pdf or twenty x single page pdfs.

Any solution to this?

Thanks

HI,

On the Job Assembly tab turn Build Job to on, scan first segment, the machine will prompt for next segment an so on when you finish your documents and at the end select Submit Job.

Won't that create one pdf file with all the documents in?

I want to put a stack of 10 multi page documents in the feeder and press "scan" and have 10 pdf files created.

Yeah, it can be done. Open CWIS and select the Scan tab then select the template you are using and do this

Or you can do it on the fly per job

Re: Scanning multi page documents to individual pdfs.

Thanks Joe but if I select "one file per page" this turns a two page document into two single page pdfs, not one 2-page pdf. So If I do this for a batch of 10 two page documents I'd get 20 pdfs not 10.

Re: Scanning multi page documents to individual pdfs.

If you stick 20 pages in the adf, you get one 20 page job, or 20 1 page jobs. It can't possibly know any more than that, it has no AI, it does not in any way interpret what is on the pages, its just a printer.

Now, if you are scanning the job in sections as separate scans and still getting one job in the shared folder, that would not be the default way it behaves, that means someone at your site told the printer to always add to the existing file, instead of creating a new file, so if that is your scenario you are going to have to provide more information, specifically:

1. What type of scan

2. What firmware is on the printer

3. What file type you are using

Re: Scanning multi page documents to individual pdfs.

OK thanks. That makes sense I guess. I have some basic scan sofware which has an option to split files after a given number of pages pages so I thought this might be an available feature on the MFDs given they are built for bulk processing.
