What is Personal Printing?
The safe handling of print output is particularly important for certain branches or for individual departments, for example, in finance and legal or in accounting. However, allocating a separate printer to every employee is not a practical solution for protecting documents from unwanted exposure. As an alternative, Personal Printing offers a simple solution to this problem. Personal Printing ensures that printing within the business remains private. It’s a solution that offers secure, environmentally friendly and, at the same time, flexible printing. All sensitive documents remain protected because printing only occurs after individual authentication, directly at the printer.
Caution! An update of the version of Personal Printing included in ThinPrint Mobile Print to Personal Printing 4.0 is not possible.
- Assign the Personal Printer to a user or group template in the management console. (see section Server-attached Printer).
- Users can now select the Personal Printer in the Mobile Print app (see illus.).
If you want to retrieve a print job, you can go to any network printer within your company, authenticate yourself there with your tablet or smartphone, together with optional PIN entry, and print out the document.
To be able to print with Personal Printing, you must make some settings both on the server and on printers and mobile devices. Proceed as described in the following sections.
