ScanSnap and Oxygen are joining forces to expand the benefits of the cloud to your desktop file system. By installing Oxygen at no cost, you can easily scan your documents into a folder that connects you to the cloud so you can store, access, edit, manage, and share those files from anywhere with anyone. Gone are the days of USB drives or emailing scanned documents back and forth!

Oxygen creates a folder on your desktop that connects you to the cloud. You can scan and work on those files locally, save them to the folder and they will be automatically available in cloud.

Next, invite others to subscribe to your folder.  All subscribers will automatically have access to all the documents that you scan and save to that folder.  Here’s how:

  1. Right click on the Oxygen folder you wish to share
  2. Select “Oxygen folder subscribers”
  3. Select “Invitations” and click on “Invite Users”
  4. Enter email addresses of people you want to share the folder with, add multiple users and select folder subscription settings for each user
  5. Click “Invite”
