What are HP Digital Solutions?

HP Digital Solutions are a set of tools provided with this printer that can help improve your office productivity.

HP Digital Filing

HP Digital Filing provides robust, general-office scanning—as well as basic, versatile, document-management capabilities—for multiple users over a network. With HP Digital Filing, you can simply walk up to the printer, select the options on the printer control panel, and either scan documents directly to computer folders on your network or quickly share them with business partners as email attachments—and all without using additional scanning software.

These scanned documents can be sent to a shared network folder for personal or group access or to one or more email addresses for quick sharing. In addition, you can configure specific scan settings for each scan destination, allowing you to make sure that the best settings are being used for each specific task.

HP Digital Fax

Never lose important faxes misplaced within a stack of paper pages again!

With HP Digital Fax, you can save incoming, black-and-white faxes to a computer folder on your network for easy sharing and storage, or you can forward faxes through email—allowing you to receive important faxes from anywhere while working away from the office.

In addition, you can turn off fax printing altogether — saving money on paper and ink, as well as helping reduce paper consumption and waste.

Requirements

Before you set up the HP Digital Solutions, make sure you have the following:
