Disconnected Scanning
Foundation 23.1

Depending on your system configuration, Windows Autoplay can be used to sweep a large number of documents into OnBase quickly and easily from an external source, such as a digital camera or a data CD.

To sweep files into an OnBase scan queue from an external source using Disconnected Scanning and Windows Autoplay:

  1. Log on to the Disconnected Scanning module. The Disconnected Scanning window is displayed.
  2. Trigger Windows Autoplay by inserting removable media or connecting an external device, such as a digital camera, to your system. Select the Archive Documents using OnBase Disconnected Scanning option from the Autoplay dialog box.
  3. All documents stored in the external device are swept into the working batch of the configured scan queue. If there is no open batch in the scan queue, a new batch is created.

    If you have access rights to more than one scan queue that has been configured as a target, then the Disconnected Scanning module will select the queue that appears first alphabetically.

    If you do not have rights to a scan queue configured to accept documents swept into the system using Windows Autoplay, the documents are swept into a batch in the current scan queue.


    For information on configuring a scan queue to be an Autoplay target, see the Document Imaging Help.

  4. Once the sweep is complete, a confirmation message is displayed.

    The Disconnected Scanning module will attempt to determine the imported files' file formats based on their file extensions.

  5. After all files have been imported from the source device, a message is displayed asking if the files should be deleted from the source device.
  6. The batch remains open until the Disconnected Scanning module is closed or until the batch is indexed.
