I’m a huge fan of Office Lens, particularly when scanning receipts for expense claims.  I’ve even used it while attending presentations – using my phone, I take some notes using OneNote, and take photos of presentation slides or business cards directly from the app which integrates with Office Lens.  It’s nice when integrated Microsoft tools work nicely with each other!

My newest phone, Samsung Note 20, seems to have the Office Lens features already built into my camera.  When taking a photo of a receipt, the Lens features kicks in automatically upon recognizing a document.  The cropping and colour balancing is mostly automated which keeps me from having to open a photo editor each time I snap a new document.

Such a great tool to minimize the need for paper.
