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

Plustek will allow to scan documents from Plustek devices equipped with embedded technologies via the installed Scanshare embedded client.

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

  • .img: the document itself in TIF LZW format retaining the original scanned document and properties
  • .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 allows to customize the scanning settings used by this workflow when the scan job is started on any connected Plustek device.
