Faxing back in the day was as easy as going to the office and finding the fax machine sitting on a counter. You put the paper in the document feeder, dial up the phone number, press the green Send button and listen to the modem noises as the two machines carried on their digital (or is it analog?) conversation. Today, we no longer have fax machines in our buildings. Years ago, the EVSC invested in new technology to make it easier for everyone to fax using either a copy machine or their desktop computer.
Let’s take a look at how you fax using these technologies.
There are three different brands of copy machines in the district and here’s how you fax with each.
- Select Fax/Scan
- Select Direct Input
- Select Email icon
- In the Destination box, enter the 10-digit phone number including area code. DO NOT put a long distance code 1 or a 9 in front of the number. After the last number, enter @fax.evsck12.com or press the button on the screen for Prefix/Suffix to quickly add @fax.evsck12.com after the number.
Here’s an example: [email protected]
- When finished, press Ok icon.
- Hit Start button on copier.
- Click on Scanner
- Click on “Manual Entry” icon – It is on the screen, but is difficult to notice.
- Enter the 10-digit phone number including area code. DO NOT put a long distance code 1 or a 9 in front of the number.
- Click OK
- Press START button on Pad
- Click SCANNER on the left panel
- Select Email
- Click on the ENTER DESTINATION icon on the lower left of the screen. In the Destination box, enter the 10-digit phone number including area code. DO NOT put a long distance code 1 or a 9 in front of the number.
- Click on END
- “TO:“ will show on the screen and be highlighted .
- Press the ENTER icon
- Hit START from the keypad panel
- To fax from your computer, start up Gmail in your favorite web browser program.
2. In the To: box, enter the 10-digit phone number including area code. After the last number, enter @fax.evsck12.com.
Here’s an example of what should be in the box: [email protected]
3. Anything typed in the subject and body of the email will show up on the fax cover page in the “message” area.
4. Attach any additional documents as a PDF. If you have a Microsoft Word document, Excel Spreadsheet or other document file, be sure to save a copy of the document as a PDF using the document’s native program before attaching it to the fax email.
5. Click Send.
NOTE: You will receive an email message stating that the fax was sent with a PDF attachment of the cover sheet.
