How to save my adobe scan pdf directly to dropbox

I have adobe scan on my cell phone (android).  I want to be able to scan docs on the cell phone and then retrieve the documents on my laptop without having to download them to the laptop from the cloud. 

Is it possible to have adobe scan send the pdf files directly to dropbox?  I use this function a lot for my business but so far it's been nothing but workarounds.  Lately I've just been emailing myself the doc, then downloading onto my laptop, and then uploading it from there to dropbox.  Huge waste of time.   There has to be a better way.

Hi Paula,

As mentioned above, that you would like to share the document directly to the "DropBox". It is possible to share the document after scanning and saving as pdf.

Once you are done saving the file as pdf then tap the "Share File" option under share.

You will see all the available options to share the file. If the dropbox is installed and synced then you should also see the "DropBox" in the shared location.

I know this post is a bit old, but wouldn't it be better if we could set Adobe Scan to automatically upload to our favorite cloud storage like Dropbox, Google Drive, etc?

 

Like, bury it in the settings if you need to, but I would absolutely love if the moment I pressed "save", my document would instantly upload to Dropbox which I have syncing to my desktop. Then this app would function like a proper replacement for a computer scanner.

 

Right now, I have to constantly go through the annoying task of clicking "share" > "share a copy" > "Add to DropBox". 3 unnecessary taps per document!

 

If I have just 20 documents that I want to scan to dropbox, that's an extra 60 taps on my phone's screen! Such a pain.

I strongly agree it seems an obvious functionality missing and doesn't make it anymore attractive that using Dropbox's Scan Document function.

I want to strongly agree. I am currently looking for a good document scanner workflow to sync directly into my dropbox account. If the app could save to drop box automatically that would save me changing my whole workflow since the app is very good besides just that one single point.

Please implement this - that is all what is missing in the app in my opinion, too...

 

would be a totally improved workflow.

Fully agree. Would love to be able to directly upload. I would allow me to make use of my existing automation tools like Hazel so my scans are all filed and processed as I need.

Please add the option to directly save new scans to cloud services like Dropbox. I am using my dropbox to automatically transfer PDF files into my DMS (Document Management System). I would love to scan several documents in a row. But this is simply a waste of time due to the necessity to individually share each file to my dropbox. This is such a simple thing to add to make your app perfect. There should be a way to synchronize adobe scan results to a cloud storage.
