ScanSnap users, if you aren't checking out the ScanSnap Community website or subscribe to the ScanSnap Newsletter you should be. Fujitsu has created a destination for users of ScanSnap model Fujitsu scanners that includes Tips & Tricks, how to articles, ask the expert section and even a marketplace for vendors that have created ScanSnap specific products. The ScanSnap newsletter includes links to special features and more on the ScanSnap Community.
In the May 2010 ScanSnap newsletter there is a link to an Ask the Expert Question on How to Quickly Rename Your File After Scanning. Generally, most users have their ScanSnap set to automatically name their scan files using some combination of year, month date and time. However, if you want to avoid having to open the Organizer or your scan folder and then go through the process of renaming the file, you can do it as soon as you finish scanning and before saving your file: use the Rename file after scanning check box on the Save tab for your profile. That's it. The post includes images to show you the exact screen.
If you are a solo or small office and are not using a ScanSnap, why aren't you? Unless you have a specific need for TWAIN compliance, there really si no good reason other than you need a faster or higher duty cycle rated scanner. In my opinion there is no better sheet fed scanner at the $400 price point that offers the features, software and functionality of the ScanSnap.
And for those of you who are wondering what the ACRONYM TWAIN stands for: Technology Without An Interesting Name
