Any mobile device can be turned into a high-resolution scanner that can securely save files to your MBU OneDrive online file storage.

Step-by-step guide

  1. Install the Office Lens application on your mobile device. Search the app store for "Office Lens", or browse to the page below on your mobile device and click Install:
    1. Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.microsoft.office.officelens&hl=en_US
    2. iOS: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/microsoft-office-lens-pdf-scan/id975925059
  2. Open the app and sign in with your MBU email address and password.
  3. Set the document on an uncluttered, well-lighted surface.
  4. Aim the device camera at the document. The application will attempt automatically crop and adjust for viewing angle distortion. Make adjustments to the viewing angle and lighting for best results.
  5. Press the document capture button.
  6. Select PDF for the document type, and the .PDF will be saved to the "Office Lens" folder in your OneDrive. If you prefer a .JPG graphic file, select OneDrive for the destination and that will be saved to your OneDrive instead.
