I suggest you ...

Onedrive scan multiple pages

So why can you scan multiple pages with office lens but not with the new scan feature in onedrive? And vise versa regarding renaming the file.

        Regarding #6, you must change the filename prior to tapping upload, or you can just rename existing file in the conventional way (right click file, choose rename).

        I know this is an old topic, but One Drive scanning does offer multi-page scanning. Here's how:
        1. Open OneDrive App on your mobile device
        2. Click + (on iOS it's at the top of the screen next to the magnifying glass)
        3. Choose Scan.
        4. At the bottom of the app, choose type of document. Align camera with document and take the picture.
        5. At the bottom of the screen click the + to add another page. Repeat until complete.
        6. Tap Upload (top right in iOS). Every scan is added to one document with the naming convention of "Scan from <YYYY>-<MM>-<dd> <HH>_<mm>.pdf (If you want a different name, just click on the filename in the top center, and type what you want).

        Yep. This is a deal breaker for me. Am now moving everything to Dropbox as they got this all figured out. Super fast too, great user experience compared to Onedrive. Dropbox took just 5secs to snap, pdf convert, and upload while OneDrive took all of 18 secs (and no option to scan a 2nd page).

        Sorry ms

        Why can't I upload docs from CamScanner to Onedrive (mobile) anymore? Tried with other scanners and they do not upload to onedrive either.
        Scanning feature in Onedrive is very basic and can't match the one in CamScanner so turning to Onedrive scanner is not an option.
        What might be the issue here?

        On a very positive note, I like the distortion correction of OneDrive scanner; important for mobile work. CamScanner does not have this, yet.

        Also, regarding an earlier refence to CamScanner. Yes please. Just buy the company!

      • Vince commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Odd. Still can't find it in iOS. Published but not available. Still working in it?

      • Chris commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Just update my OneDrive which published changes as superscanning, yet none of the published features turned up?

        Hi Douglas, any idea how long it would take to have the multi-page scan available on iOS?

        Why can't i scan multiple files to pdf in one drive? It seems crazy that this feature is not available. I am an office 365 subscriber

      • Lorcan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I am an Android user and O365 subscriber, where is the multi-page feature?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please MS, just catch up with Google and incorporate their scanning features. Rather than just taking a photo and calling it a 'scan', Google Drive allows you to crop it, change colour settings and give the file a custom name before uploading. Heaps better!

        The functionality of the CamScanner app incorporated into OneDrive would be great. Easy scan, auto crop, multiple pages, clarification of the document, OCR etc.

        Douglas, this feature suggestion was posted in December 2016 (perhaps even earlier in another post). It took you 4 months to respond. More than a month has passed since then. Why did Microsoft not introduce this from the outset (at least for Office 365 subscribers. It seems pretty obvious that this feature should be added very soon. when will it be available?

        I can't figure out how to use multi-page scan from within onedrive or from office lens for android. Am I missing something obvious?
