How to setup fax forwarding to a folder on Konica Minolta Bizhub C35?
Posted on 2013-12-18
I am trying to setup our fax machine which is on our Konica Minolta Bizhub C35 copier to receive faxes and convert them to a PDF or some other document format and save them to a folder on a network shared drive. Right now, we can scan to a folder designated "SCANS" on one of our network drives, but I can't for the life of me find anywhere on the copier interface or on the copier's "web connection" web interface a place that lets us fax to a folder. It seems like the only options I have are to fax forward to an email address or just to print out the faxes. I found a couple of videos showing how to setup the fax to folder option, but the web interfaces look different from ours and ours doesn't have as many options as those have. The closest I've come to achieving what I want to achieve is adding an SMB destination address to the address book of the copier, but then when I go to the copier and navigate to the "fax function settings", I go to where it asks me to choose a destination, I tap "address book" and nothing shows up except the email address. So then I go a step further and tap "search", then "type", then I go to "SMB" and both folders that I created display, but they are grayed out and I can't tap on them. When I do, the machine beeps at me and it won't let me select either of the SMB folders. I also tried looking at the user manual for the copier both hard copy and online PDF and it doesn't mention anything about fax forward to folder, only fax forward to email. I want to setup fax forward to folder!!! This shouldn't be this difficult. Can someone please help with this?
