You select the option to store documents in DocuWare
direct from the scanner. Depending on the setting, you
either authenticate yourself with a user name and
password or use a predefined user to log into DocuWare.
The document is then scanned. Next you select a store
dialog for a DocuWare file cabinet; then using the soft
keyboard on the scanner display, enter index words for the
document or select them from select lists. The document
is stored directly in the selected DocuWare file cabinet and
can be viewed immediately by all authorized users.
The Java application is installed on the scanner. The
scanner uses this application to communicate with the
DocuWare Web Services, which in turn access the
DocuWare servers directly via GAPI (General Application
Programming Interface).

You configure the application directly on the scanner. Here
you can specify whether to use a fixed login for
DocuWare or whether each user must log in directly on the
scanner. You can also specify when scanning multiple
pages whether to create a multiple-page TIFF document, a PDF file, a document with multiple single-page TIFFs, or a
document containing several PDF files. As for the scanning resolution and paper format, you can either accept the
scanner’s default settings or define your own settings.
Because entering index words on the scanner display is less convenient than on a ‘real’ keyboard, we recommend
defining special store dialogs with fewer index fields for this application. You can then specify that only these special
dialogs are made available for selection in the list of store dialogs.
