bexioGo - Document Scanner

Important: L'application «bexioGo» reprend les fonctionnalités de «bexio Scanner» et «bexio Contacts» et remplace ces deux applications. Comme nous n'effectuons plus de développement sur les applications précédentes, elles ont été retirées des magasins d'applications au début du mois de mars. Nous vous recommandons de passer immédiatement à la nouvelle application.
You can use the bexioGo Mobile App to manage your contacts, to enter times when recording services, and to upload documents, which can then be used to generate supplier invoices. This article describes how to scan documents.

Scan new document

Make sure that you are registered in the correct company. By moving the menu to the left, you can switch between the companies if you have created several. Click on "Scan documents" in the menu and then select the process.

  • Scan in and send via email - (sends the document to your inbox)
  • Scan and create a supplier invoice (directly creates a supplier invoice with the attached document). If you are scanning an invoice with a QR code, the payment details will be read and entered in the invoice automatically. Learn more »)
  • Upload a file from your smartphone via the "Share" function. This is not an action that can be carried out directly in the menu, but an indication that this function is available.

Scanning function

Regardless of which operation you select, your document will be scanned. To scan several pages, you can press the capture button multiple times. The pages that have already been scanned can be deleted below the scan. Optionally, you can also switch your phone’s flash on and off. You can use one of two different modes, “M” & “A”, to capture photos with your camera. Confirm that you are happy with your completed scan by tapping the “arrow symbol” →.

  • «M» → We do not automatically crop the document.
  • «A» → If we recognise the document shape, we automatically crop it.

Tip: Automatic document recognition works best in good lighting conditions and with a high-contrast background (white paper against a dark background).

Upload a file from your smartphone

Receipts can also be uploaded to bexio using the "Share" function. When uploading multiple receipts, always use the same file format and pay attention to the maximum file size of 12MB. The following formats are supported: PDF, JPG and PNG.

Delete all documents

If you have more than two scanned documents in the list, you also have the option to delete all documents. To do this, tap “Delete all” and confirm the final dialog box. Important: Documents that have already been uploaded will of course remain in the inbox of your bexio account; the documents will only be deleted locally from your device.

Inbox - Uploaded documents

Your documents are now available in your bexio account. Log in to bexio at and open “Apps” → “Inbox”. If you have not already made a selection during the scanning operation to create a supplier invoice, you can link the current document to another document using this interface.



Here you get an overview of your scanned documents. You can perform various options here.



Note: The scans that are already in use (attached to a bexio document) are archived. To search for these, tap the “Archived” filter. Here you can see all of the scans that are in the archive.
