RightFax allows you to send faxes and electronic documents directly from your computer to any fax number. You can monitor the progress of the fax and resend documents with a click of the mouse. You can also send Word of Adobe Acrobat documents by printing to RightFax directly from the program. Faxes sent to an Upstate user will be available directly from their Outlook inbox!
All faculty and staff will be able to send documents using the RightFax software. If an individual or department needs to receive faxes at their own number please contact the help desk to get this set up.
RightFax is free to all faculty and staff.
