How do I change the file format to TIFF?   I want the Kyocera Ecosys M3550idn to send to all the workstations shared folders in TIFF format.  This seems straight forward but I can't find the button to switch the setting.

Download the Command Center Operation Guide from here:

http://cdn.kyostatics.net/dlc/eu/documentation/usermanual/command_center_og.-downloadcenteritem-Single-File.downloadcenteritem.tmp/Operation_Guide...ENTER_(ENG).pdf

Look on page 25 for the File Format item:
Selects the format of forwarded files from PDF or TIFF.(This item has effect when the forwarding destination is E-mail, SMB, or FTP.)
You may also want to adjust the quality, which is on page 20 in the Image Quality PDF/TIFF/JPEG item:
Selects the file quality mode (1 [Low] to 5 [High]) in which the scanned data will be saved.

Page 25 is related to FAX/i-FAX > Common > RX/Forward Requirements > Requirement List that starts the dialogue 3 pages prior.   I don't believe I have this option nor do I think this fax section will fix my SMB scan issue.

Page 20 of that manual explains how to change the File Format.
Depending upon firmware version of the Kyocera, you may not have TIFF as an option.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

> Page 25 is related to FAX/i-FAX

You are correct...my bad...sorry about that! Starting on page 19 is a section called Scanner Page:
This section includes settings that apply to the scanning function of the machine
The next page has the File Format item, which applies to scanning, not faxing:
Selects the file format in which the scanned data will be saved.
I don't have that device, so I can't say what the choices are for File Format, but since the very next item in the list is Image Quality - PDF/TIFF/JPEG, there's an excellent chance that those are the three options for File Format, Regards, Joe

I'm under function setting, common job settings, and adjust file settings as displayed in the attachment.  I can't find a "scanner page"

You get to the Scanner Page via the Start tab and then Scanner. It should look something like this (may have a different appearance depending on your version):

UI changes are not uncommon. Since I don't have it here to test, all I can do is make educated guesses. Seems to me either Device Settings or Function Settings would be the logical place for it. I noticed in your previous screen shot the File Default Settings:

file default settings
I see that you set it to TIFF. Is that not working for scanning?

Correct. I changed from PDF to TIFF and it did nothing.

That's in Function Settings. Anything look related to file format in Device Settings?

Are you on the latest Command Center version for your device? If not, I suggest updating to the latest release.

The unit appears to be defective. The staff say tiff images appear black. The firmware has been updated.

There's no real fix other than replacing the unit.
