    Changing a Printing Record

Quickly add new printers to the database with the click of a button, and control their details such as whether they will be monitored.


   Setting up charging 

Printer charging can be set up very simply with a single default rate, or for finer control, with varying rates for paper size, colour / black & white, and duplex double sided printing. Print jobs can be allowed to print or rejected based on paper size. One reason you might want to reject jobs based on paper size is when you do not want a certain size to be used even though the printer supports it. Another reason is when the size would cause the printer to pause until the selected paper size is inserted. For example, many A4 printers pause when a job specifies Letter and require manual intervention. This option allows the monitor to automatically filter those jobs that would cause the printer to stall.
