  Description     : scan, index and archive all your physical documents

Paperless does not control your scanner, it only helps you deal with
what your scanner produces. Paperless doesn't care how the documents get
into its local consumption directory. You can setup a document scanner
to "scan to FTP", install an Android Share application, configure email
attachment processing via IMAP or just submit a web form.

Wait for paperless to process your files. OCR is expensive, and
depending on the power of your machine, this might take a bit of time.
Use the web frontend to sift through the database and find what you
want. Download the PDF you need/want via the web interface and do
whatever you like with it.

Filtering by tags, correspondents, types, and more. Full text search
helps you find what you need. Paperless learns from your documents and
will be able to automatically assign tags, correspondents and types to
documents once you've stored a few documents in paperless.


paperwork is a desktop application just recently added to the archive
that could be used, but a paperless-ng server feels like a better way to
handle the multiple devices usecase and could be a FreedomBox module.
