Hey, you’ve landed on a page that we’ve updated and made even better! Go see the new section on our website called Discover.

This Discover section provides you with everything you need to know and covers stories and practices on how our customers use our solutions to get the most out of their printing, scanning and copying environments.

All topics are covered in the new section, but we may have written a page or two before our morning coffee, so we’ve left these pages active just in case :-)

Reports in PaperCut come in three categories:

One-click Reports
Get access to the most important data in realtime - straight from your web browser, from anywhere on your network
Ad-hoc Reports
Create reports with custom data by specifying date ranges, filtering and sorting by the data available. Great to give you different perspectives on printing usage
Custom Reports
Create fully customizable reports (using third-party tools like Jasper) to suit your unique business requirements
Schedule / Email Reports
Create reports that will be regularly generated and emailed to members of your organization or scheduled to be saved to disk. Great for sending regular reports to managers without even needing to compile it first

Custom Reports

PaperCut now provides the power to "build-your-own" reports to suit your unique business requirements. There are three fully-customized reports available, and you can build them using an external tool such as Jasper Studio. You can launch and schedule each custom report in a similar way to the built-in PaperCut reports, including exporting your reports to CSV. We have a roadmap for further Custom Reports features in the near future, so stay tuned for updates.
