It needs to support multi-page documents. I wouldn't even mind it as a swipe option in addition to document and whiteboard. Maybe swipe up, with document selected, and it changes between single page docs and multi-page docs?

Thanks so much,

Overall it's good and very light also. But it supports only one document scanning at a time. it should have two things which are very useful for scanning app
1- Support of Multiple Documents Scanning option. It's a most have feature which is missing in current version
2- it should have option to display all previous scanned docs. App can ask for registration and store on cloud as per user registration. And App can store the docs in OneDrive or Google Drive and display the docs from there.
Please incorporate these asap.
Ability to manipulate the pages in multipage documents.
Ability "reference" the document in onedrive so that it is a two way function not just an "upload" function... for example if you want to add pages to an existing document through either the mobile device or a computer the "file" a onedrive file should always be the only single file in use.
Is n pages scanning alreay available ? Thank you !
absolutely, multi-page is a must.

agreed, multipage would be nice. And the ability to easily mail as a pdf. Right now it seems to want to email it as an image file.

How is this not done yet? How hard can it be? This is a critical feature as I'm very often scanning multiple page documents and then have to go to me desktop to merge them together.
This works great. I use Tiny Scanner from the App Store, but it doesn't do what office lens does, but what's needed here is the ability to create multiple PDFs and save them as a file. I use it for music. Scan the music, turn it into PDFs then import into my PDF reader (unreal book).
Microsoft I had written you off, but this app is great. If you continue to innovate like this and add useful features you can slowly regain our confidence. Great work!
I love how this syncs with one note but I think it would be great to be able to put multiple pictures into one document that could then be placed into one note.
Without multi-page scanning, this app is not valuable, especially with apps like CamScanner available...
We use this app for receipts, it would be nice to be able to take multiple pics and send in one email
A must have!! On Android Please

After switching from a Windows Phone to Android, I was shocked to find out that this app doesn't have multi-page support. Very disappointed.
Found a workaround of sorts, but I still think it should be a priority to have multi page scanning.
On the iPhone you photograph and save the photos using Lens to the photo album, in the order you want them, then go in there and select the photos and 'send to', iBooks should be an option and this will convert it to a multi page PDF.
I'm not sure what this does for any OCR functionality of file size but it got me out of a bind (ha.. I made a pun).
1. Agreed, not very useful without multi-page document scanning ability.
2. Needs to store PDFs instead of jpg images
3. Needs to store actual scan instead of a photo. Photos are unnecessarily large in size.
I certainly hope you're able to continue development by adding the multi-page feature! Thanks for your consideration!!!
The text recognition and page detection features of this app are very high functioning. I haven't found another that works as well when using both features. Adding the multi-page feature would allow me to use Office Lens exclusively, instead of having to use several apps to both recognize text and construct multi-page PDFs.
Remember last place saved. For example keep adding pics to the same one note page. This would be great for comparison shopping
Really, multi-page scanning should be one of the first features in the product. It's fairly baffling it wasn't, given how well designed the rest of the app is and how it is a standard feature in competing products.
I have switched to CS Cam Scanner - it scans multiple pages and saves as pdf quickly and easily.
Bravo! Am waiting for this feature!
