How to configure a Fujitsu ScanSnap to scan to Evernote

Some Fujitsu ScanSnap scanners can be configured to scan directly into Evernote using Fujitsu's ScanSnap Home software. Scanned documents will become instantly accessible and searchable in Evernote on all your devices.

Scanning into Evernote using Fujitsu's ScanSnap Home software and ScanSnap Cloud service works with the following Fujitsu ScanSnap models:

  • iX100
  • iX500
  • iX1500
  • ScanSnap Evernote Edition Scanner (after a permanent update to iX500 firmware)

Note: If you are using a ScanSnap scanner with ScanSnap Manager software, follow the steps in the section titled "Configure ScanSnap Manager to scan to Evernote" at the end of this article.

Get Started

There are a few things you need to do before you can begin to configure your Fujitsu scanner to scan to Evernote:

  1. Download and install the ScanSnap Home software
  2. Create a free ScanSnap account
  3. Configure your scanner for wireless scanning during the ScanSnap Home setup

If you have questions or need help with the steps above, contact Fujitsu Support.
