Konica Minolta Bizhub C352 - Change Fax Forward from TIF to PDF

I have the incoming faxes going the the server share, however they are in TIF format.   How do I change it from TIF to PDF?

Here is the manual... Am I missing something?  Cannot find where to change from TIF to PDF.

Thank you,

what you might probably find is you need to log in to control panel using web browser as an admin and then you should be able to change it there.

No fax settings are available through the web interface.  I have been through the physical interface and haven't found the setting.

Hi Kris,

Note this on page 7-5 of the manual that you posted:
File Type: For the Internet fax, TIFF is fixed. In the case of the IP Address Fax, this is fixed to TIFF in the monochrome transmission mode, and to PDF in the color transmission mode.
Since most folks send monochrome (black&white) faxes, they will come in as TIFF. In other words, there's no way to set the bizhub to create a PDF for a monochrome fax. My suggestion is to convert the TIFF to a PDF when it comes into the server share. There are many programs that can do this. One is Nuance's Power PDF Advanced. It has a Watched Folder feature that will watch for a TIFF coming in and then create a PDF from it. Here's a 5-minute EE video Micro Tutorial that shows how to do:
Convert Scanned Image-Only PDF Files to PDF Searchable Image Files via OCR with Power PDF Advanced

The only change from what is shown in the video is that you'll be converting from a TIFF file rather than a PDF image-only file. Works a charm! And, you'll have a searchable PDF to boot!

As a disclaimer, I want to emphasize that I have no affiliation with this company and no financial interest in it whatsoever. I am simply a happy user/customer. Regards, Joe
