Genius Scan for the Tax Season

Genius Scan allows you to scan a large variety of documents. During tax season, it becomes especially handy:
  • You need to keep a copy of your tax forms for future reference. Genius Scan allows you to do that very quickly. You can scan several pages in a row and add them to a PDF document. You can then email the document to yourself. With Genius Scan+, you can choose to export the document to a cloud service for backup (Box, Dropbox, Evernote, Google Docs are supported).
  • Send documents to your accountants. For instance, you can email him the copies of your invoices. You can also email any expense that could be itemized.
  • Make photocopies of documents. With Genius Scan+, you can directly take a photo of a document and print it using AirPrint. This is much faster than finding a photocopier!
Happy Tax Season!

Genius Scan, Google Docs and 2-step verification

Users have encountered issues uploading documents to Google Docs from Genius Scan.

Some of you might have enabled the 2-step verification on their Google Account. This adds a layer of security to your account but that has some constraints. All the applications which need to access your Google account (outside of a browser) need an application-specific password.

The Google Docs export feature in Genius Scan is not an exception. If you enabled 2-step verification for your Google Account, you need to create a specific password for Genius Scan.

Genius Scan 2.3.2 Makes Expense Reports Easier

As always we strive to make it easier for our users to achieve theirs tasks. One of the most common task people use Genius Scan for is the preparation of expense reports.  Genius Scan 2.3.2 will help you in a few ways:
  • First, we partnered with Expensify to integrate with their new ScanAnywhere API. Expensify is the best expense report service around and some of our users were already using it with Genius Scan but had to fallback to work around using the email feature. Expensify is only available in Genius Scan+ (only $2.99)
  • Genius Scan 2.3.2 allows you to setup default email addresses. This is convenient when you always send your scans to the same address. Typically, yours or your company's accounting department. You can always add yourself in copy for later reference. This feature is available in both Genius Scan and Genius Scan+ and you will find it in the Settings.

Settings for the default email addresses

The email feature now uses these defaults.
Happy receipt scanning!
