Print Scout Collect: Print User Info Scheduler

Version 5

    Print Scout Settings

     

    There are three user information collection settings. Typically a single print scout is designated as the one that manages user information collection for all print scouts.

     

    Directory Service - lookup when printed

     

    Print user information is collected from your directory service when the user prints. This is the default setting used for all print scouts. With this setting in place, the Description field in the Print Scout table is empty.

     

    Directory Service - scheduled import

     

    Print user information is imported from your directory service using a schedule that you define. At the scheduled day and time period, the print scout queries your directory service for user metadata and then uploads the information to Beacon for use within the application. With this setting in place, the Description field in the Print Scout table is 'Print User Info Collector'.

     

    Monitored Folder - import CSV file

     

    With this settings option, a specified folder is monitored for an updated CSV file. When an updated copy of the CSV file is found, this file is then uploaded to the server and referenced by the application.
