Robert,

We don’t have any MFP’s currently available for these staff members or students.  The flatbed scanners had been a nice, simple way of getting paper documents into Google Docs (and, occasionally using OCR software).  Our copiers are not enabled as scanners (that’s a completely different, and really dumb, problem).

My current thinking: we’re going to have students install some of the free scanner apps on their phones and then use Google Drive app to upload the files.  I’m trying really hard to use the mantra, “don’t make people have to think” when it comes to work flow: incredibly simple (ideally single-step) processes are most effective.  That’s why the flat bed scanner had been so nice: push one button, and viola!

current copiers/MFP's can't scan to email/folder or even pull scan (Twain)?

If all chromebooks suddenly stopped doing something they did the week before, I suspect a Chrome version upgrade happened that broke that feature.  if you can find one that hasn't upgraded and confirm that, you could make a recovery thumb drive, put the ones that need to use the scanners back on the older OS and lock them on that OS in the control panel.  Not a permanent solution, but it'd give you some breathing room while you figure out something more long term.
