The first step to sending a fax online is finding an online platform through which to do it, such as SimplyCast’s fax application. After that, the steps may change slightly depending on the platform. Here’s how you send a fax online using SimplyCast.
How to send a fax online
1. Create your design
With the SimplyCast fax application, you have the choice to either upload a pre-designed PDF or use the “Build a Document” element within the fax application using the provided text editor. The Build a Document element makes it easy to create a fax in minutes and have it ready to send.
2. Add a cover page
As with the main fax designs, you can choose to either upload a pre-designed fax cover sheet or create a new one in the fax application using the Cover Page element. With SimplyCast’s fax application, you can add this element to the campaign and fill out the required information to be relevant to your organization.
3. Configure your send settings
Once you have all the pages set for your fax campaign, it’s time to move onto the send settings. This page lets you choose things like the lists you’d like to send to, what time you’d like to send the campaign at, and how many times you’d like to redial if the receiving fax machine doesn’t respond on the first attempt.
4. Monitor the reports
All faxes sent through SimplyCast’s fax application have detailed reports to review. The reports show how many faxes were queued, sent, and failed. Reports also how many attempts were made, how long the campaign took to send, and any error codes that may have been received in response.
