Mobile Client



This is a Client capture module, adding this module will allow the Workflow to be visible into the connected clients of this type. The module itself doesn’t capture any document but it will look into the client incoming queue for documents to process.

Capture module Mobile Client allows to use this Workflow on connected and enabled Mobile Clients. When this module is added to a Workflow this will be visible, according eventually any permissions, to the Mobile Clients currently configured in the Clients section.

Mobile Client will allow to import digital documents or take photos to paper documents from any mobile device equipped with Android or iOS platforms via the official mobile apps.

For each imported job the Mobile Client module will create a document into the target Workflow incoming queue. The document is composed by two files:

  • .img: the document itself in the original format imported and uploaded from the Mobile Client or in TIF LZW format retaining the original quality and properties if acquired by photo(s)
  • .var: the variables automatically generated for the job and user inserted via Questions in a strong encrypted AES format

The default Incoming queue is located inside C:\ProgramData\Scanshare\Incoming\Workflow-ID.


The variable file is specifically linked to the Workflow for which it has been created for security reasons. If moved into a different Workflow it will not be parsed and generate a Bad Data error at the start of processing.

The left hand side menu shows the available settings sections. Settings are displayed according the selected section.


This section shows the list of available Questions in this server. From here new questions can be created and existing questions can be modified, however existing questions cannot be deleted and they need to be deleted from the general Questions list.

Select one or more questions, with the checkbox in the first column of the table, to be used and displayed for this Workflow on the connected clients.

The Questions section here is used in the same way in all clients capture modules. For more information check the Capture Questions section.


This section allows to customize general working behavior of the Mobile Client when using the current Workflow. The options here affects all Mobile Clients and all Users using this workflow.

Start workflow without scanning
If enabled the mobile app Send button will submit the Workflow without any document, otherwise the Workflow will require to enter first a document by either import or camera. Only variables will be sent to the Scanshare server. The option allows to create Workflows to only capture question fields (e.g. mobile electronic forms) or to trigger actions (inside the target Workflow) which don’t require a document to be acquired.
