Reset user counters back to zero
PaperCut tracks printer usage data for each of your users, and occasionally you might like to wipe the slate clean.
You can reset all user counters back to zero by navigating to
Users -> Bulk User Actions -> Reset Counters
We’re happy to let you go ahead and reset those pesky stats - but it’s worth your while to step back for a moment or two and ask yourself that age-old question: why?
If your goal is to simplify periodic print reporting - consider making use of PaperCut’s powerful suite of report generation tools . We put a lot of work into them, it’d be a shame if they went to waste.
Bear in mind that by resetting user counters, you’re throwing away potential insight into your system’s usage.
- In addition, if you want to remove old log data from the database, you can delete it manually via
Options → Backupspage. For more on that, see Partially clearing log data.
- If you’re wanting to clear or update dashboard / environmental page stats check out this article on correcting historical displays of page counts.
