PaperCut v15.3

Integrated Scanning

Integrated Scanning extends our existing print and copy management features with a simple and consistent scanning workflow at the MFD display panel.

PaperCut MF's Integrated Scanning Actions Interface

Quick scan to pre-defined destinations.

System Administrators can centrally pre-configure and deploy user-specific Scan Actions. Users can scan documents to authorized email and folder destinations.

  • Make common actions easy
  • Control destinations ensuring your document are secure
  • Centrally manage and deploy

It could be as simple as setting up scan to email or scan to home, or as specific as on ramping into business automation processes.

PaperCut MF with Integrated Scanning is currently available across Kyocera and Sharp and we’re already working on rounding out the complete list.

Find out more on the Integrated Scanning tour page.

Managing Large Numbers of Shared Accounts

It’s not uncommon for customers to have thousands of Shared Accounts. Imagine having over 300,000! Yes, we have some legal and accounting customers out there with this many client codes to manage.

We’ve spent time optimizing performance, to make it quicker to select accounts on both the MFD and desktop client, minimizing any delay. We’ve also developed a best practice guide for managing sites with large numbers of accounts.

Easily manage large numbers of shared accounts

Release Manager Roles

Recently a court system approached us for a secure and easy way to authorize individuals to release print jobs on others’ behalf.  PaperCut has an all powerful Release Manager Role, the court system required more granular permissions and security.

System Administrators configure Release Manager Roles by limiting  the print jobs they can release. This is achieved by assigning access through user groups and printer groups.

Whether you’re an office administrator releasing for executives, or a teacher releasing documents for a class, Release Manager Roles are a powerful option for any organization.

Timely Toner Notifications

We hear time and time again that printing is often a frustration for printer administrators. One of the key ways to make life easier is to shift from reacting to user complaints to proactive maintenance.

    looking good. Hope to see Ricoh Support for ‘Scan Actions’ for our July/August Upgrade ready for next school year.

  • Quinntin Comer


    Is there an ETA for the Ricoh and Samsung app updates to allow Scan to Folder workflows?

    • Tim Bentley

      Hi Quinntin and Hibble –

      We generally don’t publish delivery schedules as there are too many factors outside our control. We’d be happy though to have a conversation with you offline about your specific needs and your interest in Integrated Scanning – please feel free to drop us a line via our Support email address.

    Any ETA on Scan actions for Fuji Xerox devices?

  • James Barratt

    Hello, is this supported on the TOSHIBA e-STUDIO5560C ?

    • Hi James,

      We currently only have Integrated Scanning available for Kyocera and Sharp devices. Unfortunately, no Toshiba devices are supported at this time. Be sure to watch our blog or twitter account for any updates. Please send us an email at if you have any questions. Thank you!

  • Max Saber

    Hi – I have a Sharp device that I’m trying to enable the integrated scanning on but I can’t seem to make it work. I have the scan actions created and enabled for the Sharp device and I’m logging in with a user that has access to those actions but there is nothing there. Thoughts?

  • Anthony Harris

    Is there a way to have Timely toner notifications active on only a subset of printers?
    Some machines in my environment have toner replaced by the users, but I would like notifications for the machines in common use areas.

    • Priyanka Dave

      Hi Anthony,

      At the moment these toner notifications are configured on a global level. However, in the next version of PaperCut we are adding a feature that would allow the administrators to send notifications to a subset of printers. If you have any further questions, feel free to email us at
