  3. The mobile screens show the status of the confirmation process. Once the card ID is validated by PaperCut or the native MFP database, the MFP is unlocked and the MFP home page is displayed. You can now use the Synappx Go features:
    • Tap the NFC tag first and then select Scan, Print Release, Print Cloud Files or Copy to perform the job OR
    • Select the Synappx Go MFP feature of interest and then tap the NFC after selection.
