Since most of us are working from home these days and hence a lot of people do not have access to types of equipment used in the office. The most important ones i.e. printers and scanners are badly needed by the employees.
The lack of such sort of equipment is making their work a little harder as compared to the office.
Keeping this mind, Microsoft has introduced a multi-page scanning feature for its OneDrive users. Now, you might be thinking what multi-page scanning in OneDrive is?
So, let me tell you that it is a free scanning feature that is available in the OneDrive mobile app. If you use it you will get to utilize the scanning functionality that performs the function of any scanner available in the market.
If you wish to get a digital copy of a physical document, this app lets you do so without having to do much. The physical document might include receipts, photos, documents, and more.
In fact, you can also scan business cards and whiteboards by just using the app and the camera of your phone.
Fortunately, the feature was earlier available only for Microsoft 365 users but now you can easily enjoy it even from your OneDrive personal account.
When you complete the scanning work, the app converts the scanned file into a PDF file. The users can save the file, share it, or do whatever they wish to do with it. The scanned file can also be edited and accessed from any device and any location.
