Network Scanning - Configure scans folder to OneDrive

Setting up scans folder to OneDrive on Lanier and Ricoh multifunction printers.

There are two possible destinations for files scanned from multifunction devices: OneDrive for Business (Recommended) and StoutFS (for those who have access to StoutFS system which is an annual cost to department). Once configured, files will be scanned to a "scans" folder in the chosen location for retrieval. Instructions for one-time setup, starting with the creation and configuration of the "scans" folder follow.

  1. Create a folder named "scans" (All lowercase and plural required) in your OneDrive
  2. Share that folder with a user named "scanuser"
  3. Create a self-service ticket and request to be set up to scan to OneDrive with the name of printer or location of printer


Detailed Instructions:

  1. Log into your Outlook Web App (via a web browser)

  2. In the OWA webpage, in the upper left-hand corner of the page, click on the "App Launcher" (square comprised of nine, smaller squares)

    • If you do not know the printer name, please supply the help desk with the building name and room number where the printer is located.
    • A technology staff person will configure the printer and a closed ticket email will confirm the configuration is complete.
  • NOTE:  Disregard the "Undeliverable to scanuser" email received.  You get this because scanuser is not an email account but an administrative account managed by IT.


If scan does not work after job ticket is completed:

  • Wait 5 minutes
  • Check OneDrive scans folder from your Outlook Web App (via a browser)
  • Users who sync to OneDrive may see delays when checking the scans folder via file browser on the computer.

Call help desk with any error messages at printer and reference previous help desk ticket number.

**Only Ricoh and Lanier scanners are supported.
