Online faxing is a secure, convenient, and easy method of communication that many modern businesses utilize. Fax cover sheets are an important way to protect fax contents and get messages to the right recipients.
A fax cover sheet (sometimes also called a fax cover page) is a page that is faxed to your recipient before your actual fax message and is used to identify the sender, the intended recipient, the subject, and maybe a few lines about the content of the attached documents. Fax cover sheets can be used for different purposes, from protecting the content of the actual fax message to adding more details about the intended recipient.
You can easily add a generic fax cover sheet to any fax you send with FAX.PLUS. All you have to do is to head to the Send Fax section when you’re ready to fax a document and then select Add Page and then Cover Sheet. After this, you’ll be prompted to enter details like the recipient of the fax and its subject. Then, the information will automatically get populated on a pre-formatted cover sheet that gets sent as the first page of your fax.
FAX.PLUS also offers a selection of free printable fax cover sheets that you can download as PDFs or word documents. Once you have, you’ve got a fillable fax cover sheet into which you can add the correct information for the given fax.
If you want more control over the look and format of your cover sheets for faxes, you could always create your own in Microsoft Word. There’s even a selection of templates for fax cover sheets in Word and other Office apps to choose from. Then, you can use FAX.PLUS’s Word add-in to send fax online straight from Word.
FAX.PLUS integrates with Google Workspace apps. Not only does that make email to fax simple with a Gmail account, it also means you can create your own editable fax cover sheet templates in Google Docs and send them with ease.
