Configuring Personal Folders

Users who log in with personal authentication management can create a Personal folder for individual use. A Personal folder can be specified as the send destination for scanned documents, and it can be created in a shared folder or on a file server. Users can easily send documents to their Personal folders, which can effectively prevent information leakage due to operation errors. Three different ways to specify a Personal folder are described below. After a user with Administrator privileges selects how to specify Personal folders, he or she needs to notify users of the location and instruct them to create their Personal folders.
Creating Folders in Any Location Specified by Users
Users create a Personal folder in any location they desire. This enables each user to send documents to a folder in a familiar location.
Creating Folders in a Home Folder Specified by the Administrator
A folder for each user name is created inside a parent folder (home folder) specified by the administrator. Personal folders are easier to manage because they are all kept together in one location. A Windows (SMB) shared folder or WebDAV server can be specified.
If you set up the home folder on the WebDAV server, folders for all users must be prepared beforehand.
Creating Folders in a Location Specified by the Server
The location of Personal folders is specified based on the user information registered on an authentication server, such as Windows server with Active Directory. Only a Windows (SMB) shared folder can be specified.

Select the authentication information to use, and press <OK>.
To use a separate user name and password for the Personal folder, press <Use Authentication Info. of Each User> to add a check mark. Remove the check mark to use the same user name and password entered at login. If a check mark is added to this item, a user name and password must be registered for each user.
A folder is created inside a home folder, with the following names.
If a check mark is added to <Use Authentication Info. of Each User>: the user name specified by a user
If no check mark is added to <Use Authentication Info. of Each User>: the user name used for logging in
