Jim Lancer provides an overview of several improvements and new features contained in the July 2018 update to the Pharos Beacon cloud platform:
1. Document Management Tool
The Document Management tool is part of the Pharos Print Scout for Windows and macOS. It enables print users to view documents in their print queue, delete documents they no longer need, and view activity history.
2. PCL6 Driver Support
Print users can modify job options at the printer if the IT administrator has manually configured the print queue with a PCL6 driver. This will enable you to use the latest devices and maintain the same feature functionality that users expect to see at the device.
3. Custom QR Code Labels
With Sentry Print Services, you can enable secure print release using the Pharos Sentry Print mobile app. Employees simply walk up and use the app to scan the QR code on their preferred printer. Administrators can now customize the content that appears on the QR code labels.
4. Non-Domain macOS Support
With this update, you can connect non-domain macOS computers to Sentry Print Services by downloading and installing a new version of the Print Scout. This will enable local macOS users to print to the same Pharos Secure Printer as they do on any Windows device and release those documents at the printer.
