I received an email with a form to print and sign. The person who sent it said I could scan it back. How do you scan something back?

Thank You

I use an app on my phone to do that. There are lots of them, my favorite is to use the Google Drive widget on my Android phone. Click the link below to watch a portion of one of our What Does This Button Do shows to demonstrate.

  1. Scan documents to .pdf with Google Drive widget

If you don’t have an Android device, then I’ve heard good things about the iPhone app called CamScanner. Just open up your App Store and search for it, then download and install. It’s free.

Hope that helps

Oh … another option is the iOS QR Reader that we demonstrated in this week’s What Does This Button Do show. When it’s ready to scan a code, you can ask it to scan a document instead by tapping the code reader button in the top left – that gives you a list of choices. Tap the PDF scanner choice.

I use CamScanner on my Android Galaxy S7.  Works just fine.
