How to Scan to File Bizhub C350

The Bizhub C350 is an All-in-One printer, copier and scanner distributed by Konica Minolta. The Bizhub printer is a business machine with a feature that scans documents to PDF formatted files. This feature is known as the “scan to file” feature. The scanned files can be sent via email to a user on the network, or stored in a shared folder on the network. You can configure the Bizhub printer to automatically send scanned PDF documents to a shared repository folder on the network using the printer’s administration application through a web browser.
