Can I use my mobile to scan documents?
Especially useful for working from home during the COVID crisis, Microsoft Office Lens turns your mobile into a document scanner. Automatically cropping, adjusting and cleaning up your scanned document, you can then save to email or a multitude of other destinations including OneDrive and OneNote. You can even export to a searchable PDF or a Word Document that you can edit with OCR facilities. Available for IOS or Android and free of charge. Especially powerful if you have a Microsoft 365 Business Standard account and use mobile Microsoft Office, but not essential for basic functionality
What you will need to scan your documents on your mobile
- An Android or Apple IOS mobile device
- Access to the Google Play Store or Apple Appstore
- An internet connection
