Incoming fax as PDF, not .TIF ?

    Question

  • Is there any way to have incoming faxes saved as PDF instead of TIF? Or some other format?

  • Hi,

     

    Thanks for the post.

     

    From your description, I understand that you would like to have incoming faxes saved as PDF instead of TIF format on Windows Server 2008 R2.

     

    Please understand that TIF is a by design image format for the fax service and it cannot be changed natively. In this case, you may consider develop a application or use a third party program to convert the .tiff file to PDF format.

     

    After searching on the Internet, here is a third party program you may consider:

     

    TIF to PDF Converter

    Hope this helps.

  • Hello,

    Could you suggest to your development group the option to save as XPS which is now becoming a standard for Microsoft documents?
