We live in a digital world. Sometimes however, a piece of paper manages to creep up on your desk. Maybe a colleague printed something out, or you received actual snail mail. Whatever the reason, digitising the paper to be able to work on it on the go is crucial.
Luckily, the Notes app by Apple has a built in functionality to scan documents. You don’t need any other third-party app or external hardware. The scans are of great quality too.
See how you can scan documents and schedule time to work on them
Simply open the Notes app on your iPad and create a new note. It might make sense to add a title to the note, so the scanned document is not loosely hanging around in the note all alone.
Next, click on the camera icon in the toolbar on the bottom right and choose “Scan Documents”. Hold your iPad over the document and press the shutter button. That’s it.
You can even drag and drop the note into Butleroy and schedule time to work on the scanned item. Simply watch the video below to see how easy it is.
You can also scan more than just one page or collect important documents in your Notes app. That way, they are stored savely in your iCloud and you always have access to your documents on the go.
