You can scan documents to specific locations and as new document versions using scan cover sheets.
You can create scan cover sheets for these types of objects:
· Documents—to scan a document as a new document version
· Collections—to scan a document to a collection (**Post Update 1 Patch 36)
· Workspaces—to scan a document to the content portlet of a workspace (**Post Update 1 Patch 36)
· User—to scan a document to your personal collection
When you create a scan cover sheet, information about the scan location and the cover sheet owner are stored in a DataGlyph on the cover sheet. The cover sheet is then printed and placed on top of a document and both the cover sheet and document are scanned and the resulting PDF document is stored to DocuShare.
NOTE: This solution applies to DocuShare 6.x and 6.5.x
NOTE: DocuShare 6.00.01 Update 1 Patch 36 or higher is required to enable scan cover sheets for collections. Previous to Update 3, this was an option with DocuShare CPX only.
- You must already have scanning via FTP or SMB set up and working before enabling scan cover sheet.

- Test Scanning with a Scan Cover Sheet
Note: Since the user interface for multifunction devices can vary, the following procedure provides general steps for scanning a document to DocuShare.
- Put the cover sheet on top of a document and place the pages in the document feeder.
- Scan the document to DocuShare via the normal scan process. The device scans the document and adds it to DocuShare as specified in the cover sheet.
- Once the scan completes, log into DocuShare and browse to the collection you created the scan cover sheet for. The scanned document displays in the collection.
