Keep printed documents works well when dealing with a small number of printers and users, as you would see at small office or home, however this feature does not scale as well as many system administrators would like. There is no way to distinguish between the printed documents as they are identified by a spool number that ins't terribly useful. This is where print management software such as PaperCut can help to scale this type of solution correctly.
