PaperCut NG & PaperCut MF Manual


Prevent jobs being released to a printer in error

When a printer or device is in error, print jobs can get lost, refunds might be needed, and highly-sensitive documents could be compromised. Support demands can quickly escalate when you have to deal with frustrated users on top of resolving the error.

PaperCut NG/MF gives you the ability to choose whether or not users can release jobs to printers that are reporting an error. If you choose to block jobs from being released to a printer or MFD reporting an error, a message is displayed on the Release Station interface Held Jobs pageindicating that the job has not been released as well as directions for how to resolve the error.
