Multi-page OneDrive scanning no longer has to cost you anything. As a remote worker with a laptop and reliable internet, you are good to go, right? A scanner is barely a device you give thought to, until you need to quickly scan and share a mission-critical document with a colleague.

Well, if you cannot always access a scanner when you need one, you can scan with your OneDrive Android or iOS app.

The feature lets you scan and upload multiple pages to OneDrive without a premium Microsoft 365 account.

With the free tool, you may digitize any kind of physical paperwork, from documents and receipts to whiteboards and photos. You may then upload and save the scanned item as a PDF in OneDrive.

If you scan multiple pages, the solution lets you save all of them as a single file.

The feature will prove handy to many professionals who are working from home. Students can even use it to scan handwritten notes and send them over to their instructors or teachers.
