Scan a whiteboard, document, or business card in OneDrive for iOS

Now you can scan whiteboards, business cards, or documents with the OneDrive app, and automatically save them to your OneDrive for later use.

  1. In the OneDrive app, tap Scan Icon for Scan in OneDrive mobile apps (you can also tap Add Add icon in OneDrive app for iOS at the top of the screen, then tap Scan). (To exit out of Scan mode without scanning anything, just tap the left arrow icon in the upper left corner of your screen.)

  2. Select the appropriate flash setting (on, off, automatic, or torch) by tapping the Flash icon in the upper right corner.

  3. Select either Whiteboard, Document, or Business Card, then tap the white circle icon to scan the item.

    Scan options for OneDrive for iOS

    Tip: Office 365 subscribers have the option for multi-page scanning, allowing you to combine multiple scans into a single PDF. To utilize that option, tap Add, then scan your next document.

  4. Once you've scanned your item, you can crop it, rotate it, or modify the filter you selected earlier (Whiteboard, Document, or Business Card). (If you don't like the image, tap the left arrow icon in the upper left to delete the scan and try again.)
