Scan into Evernote

Some scanners let you scan directly into Evernote. If your scanner does not, you can still do this with a few tweaks:

Add the folder and set to either keep or delete after scanning.

The Mac desktop does not have this feature. At present, the alternative is a dedicated scanner or third-party software. There are apps for smartphones and tablets that let you scan to Evernote, but that’s not a solution for large papers or multipage documents.
