HP 6978 Fax Cover Page

OfficeJet Pro 6978
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

How do I enter the name of the Fax recipient on the cover page on the Win 7 HP Fax program?  The SENDER info is easily input, but there is no provision to enter the receiver's name, department, etc. The info does not autoflow from the Contacts List, nor is there any way to enter it in the "Create Cover Sheet" popup.

Welcome to HP support community.


Follow the steps below to send an electronic cover page:

  • On the Send Fax window, verify that PC-Generated Cover Page is selected.

  • Click Edit Contents. The Cover Page Data window will appear.

  • In the Cover Page area, select the style.

  • Enter the subject and message and then click OK. The rest of the data (time, date, fax numbers, and names) will be filled in automatically from the recipient information and the name and number information from your fax settings.

Creating a custom cover page:

  • Create and use your own fax cover pages. Follow the steps below to create a custom cover page:
  • Open the HP Director.

  • Click Settings, click Fax Settings and Setup, and then click Fax Cover Page.

  • Use the editing tools to select, insert, delete, and edit objects in the template. Use commands from the Annotate menu to edit the date, time, total number of pages, and other faxing fields.

  • When finished, select Save As and save the file using the .cvr extension. The cover page will automatically be saved to the proper path and will be available for use.

I hope that helps.
