Today, I had to send something by fax. It was a list of entries in a database that might have corrupt data. So, I copied the list into a Word document, added some friendly words, printed the text and … learned how to use the fax machine. I did use the fax before but I could not remember how to use it:
- Do I have to add a “0” before the number? Yes!
- Do I have to enter the number before or after inserting the sheet? Doesn’t matter, if the fax is set to memory-fax.
- I need a fax report, how do I set this up? I will always get one printed.
The recipient will take the list and search for each entry in the very same database it came from. Normally I would have mailed the list, just to make it easier for the recipient to copy&paste the entries into the search field. But guess what:
The recipient does not have an e-mail-address.
