This option serves two purposes:

1) Scanning – You can create a profile for a document and then print the barcode for that profile to use in scanning a document to be attached to that profile. This requires a TWAIN scanner that has the capability to read a bar code. 

2) Identifying a local document's location – You can create profiles containing physical location descriptions that are defined in the document name or comments. These 'documents' are basically profiles without content. Theу reference an actual paper document that is stored in that physical location. Using this process you can, in effect, have an online card-catalog to locate and keep track of physical paper documents.

Tip: Cabinet Administrators can Create a Cover Sheet Template to add additional information to the document cover sheet.

4. You can use this bar code to scan, upload, and profile a paper document by placing it on top of the document as it is scanned. You must use a scanner that is able to read bar codes, and it must be a TWAIN scanner in order to use our Desktop Scanner Connector. We recommend using the scanner's 8.5" x 11" Document setting for best results when scanning the bar code. 

The document with its associated profile is now stored like any other document and can be placed on your Home page for easier access if you choose.
