How to Add a New Page to RightFax When Faxing From Computer

Introduction

If you are using RightFax to send faxes from your computer you may find yourself wanting to send multiple pages on the same fax. But how do you do this if the multiple pages are all on different files throughout your computer.

I used to do it the dopey way, if I can call it that. I would print out all the attachments I need then re-scan them on the scanner then create a whole new fax with the PDF file I created with all the scanned attachments in order. This, of course, is an immense amount of extra work and not necessary.

Basically, all you have to do is add the file or files as an attachment to write fax. We've all added attachments to emails right? It works basically the same on Rightfax / Captaris

Here's how to do it

Step 1 - Open Fax Document


Open the document that you want to fax on RightFax (Captaris). Specifically, open the document you'd prefer to be page one (or page 2 if including a cover sheet) of your fax.

Step 2 - Print and Printer Fax Command

Select Print and then select your Right Fax 'printer' option and click OK

Step 3 - Cover Info and Fax Attachments Tab

You'll see all the usual stuff that you need to fill in before faxing. Go ahead and enter the usual contact names, phone number, fax number, your contact info, cover sheet notes (if you are including a cover sheet), etc

After filling out your usual names, numbers, cover sheet, etc. Go to the Attachments Tab

Step 4 - Look for Folder

Along the side of the window the tab window, you'll see a button with a tan folder on it. Click the button with the tan folder.

Step 5 - Find Your File to Add to Fax

Then navigate to the file you want to attach to your fax. Double click it or single click the file and hit OK

Step 6 - Almost Added To Fax

The file will appear toward the middle, bottom of the RightFax attachments tab window

You're done! You have just learned how to add a new page to RightFax when faxing from your computer.

Computer Fax vs RightFax

So, if you are still using the old 'dummy' fax that sits on top of a desk or table on its own you are certainly not alone. A lot of offices still use the old desktop fax. We do too actually but also all of our computers are fitted with a software solution that allows us to transmit faxes from our PC's

If you aren't sure of the difference between faxing directly from your computer screen as opposed to the desktop fax, check out my post below to learn more about the differences and what to expect. It would be great to see you on my other post too :-)


Desktop Fax Versus the PC

Good DeskTop Scanner For Office

A lot of companies are using their copy machines as scanners. You can scan and send documents right there from the copier. That said, I've been using the same desktop scanner for years and really love it. I love it in part because I don't have to walk to the copier but I also love the reliability and other features I can take advantage of. My post about a really good desktop scanner will help you to learn more about this excellent piece of office equipment.

Can you see the finished compliation (all pages) BEFORE sending it? Otherwise, how can you be sure what the fax looks like? Please advise.

Zach! Thanks for your question! Great question. OK, I'm away from my computer at work (which has the RightFax installed) but I think I can help you off the top of my head. If something doesn't work, I'll be back in on Monday and I can try it live and give you better info. On the Main tab Fax Information page click HOLD FOR PREVIEW then send (it won't send just yet). Go into into your FaxUtil mailbox, click on the fax, preview then release it. I give a much clearer explanation (I hope :-) in the link I added above just below STEP 6 called "How To Preview RightFax Fax Before Sending" Check it out! Thanks Again!!
