Android shortcut to scan document

Android shortcut to scan document

I used to have a shortcut on my Android home screen that takes me straight to the document scanning feature, but I am not able to find any way to create this shortcut on the desktop anymore. 

Has it been removed? 

Thanks

Hi there @arvz, thanks for checking in with us on the Dropbox Community!

It sounds like you may be referring to a third party app, but I still want to make sure if you somehow had a shortcut to the scanning feature within the Dropbox mobile app; was this the case?

Let me know any additional info and I'll make sure to get back to you as soon as possible. Cheers!

Hey Lusil,

It's possible it might've been a third party app. I wiped my phone a while ago and haven't been able to get it back ever since. The shortcut was on my home screen, so it was like an app icon that I could tap and would immediately start the camera. It was pre-configured to save the scans into a particular folder in my Dropbox. 

Thanks

In that case, you are right @arvz, it does sound like a third party app. 

Although I don't have any information that could help you on this, I'll leave the thread open in case other users have any ideas. 

If you have furher questions for us, don't hesitate to give us a nudge. 

In the meantime, have a lovely day ahead!
