Learn how to scan documents in the mobile OneDrive app.
- [Instructor] If you take photos of whiteboards, business cards, conference presentations, or receipts, the OneDrive mobile app can capture these documents, crop, flatten, touch up color contrast and saturation, all at the same time. It saves the image as PDF that you can annotate and share with others. With the OneDrive mobile app open, in the upper right corner, select the plus sign. Then select Scan. The camera is activated, and you can select the receipt, or whatever it is you're scanning in. Notice the blue border that is around the receipt.
Once you get this lined up, this is what's going to determine how it crops and flattens the document. Select the round button to the right to capture the scan. A preview displays of the receipt that has been flattened, cropped, as well as any other color changes for readability. In the lower right corner, select the check mark to accept this scan. The save as menu appears. The default save name includes a timestamp of the date and time that this was captured. If you need to, you can change the name.
Once done, select Save. The scan is then uploaded to the main directory of the OneDrive library. Notice how it appears at the bottom of the list. Now you know how to scan documents into OneDrive. To learn more about OneDrive, or browse our entire library of courses, visit linkedin.com/learning.
