Using your smartphone to scan to MiFILE

If you scan infrequently, you can use a smartphone camera as a document scanner, but we strongly encourage you to use a scanning app in order to ensure that a quality image is created.  We recommend the free “Office Lens” app from Microsoft, which is available for most modern smartphones (go to your app store on your phone, search, and install).

Here is an example of a simple document scanned with and without Office Lens:


Office Lens will also allow you to create multi-page PDFs, if you have a multi-page document.

Once you scan the pages you’ll need to transfer them to your PC for uploading to MiFILE.  It is not recommended that you attempt to use the MiFILE site from your smartphone.  Although MiFILE will work, it is not currently optimized for the small browser on the smartphone.
