Hello Everyone,

     We have to manually change the name of a print device or queue in order to keep users from unintentionally releasing jobs to a printer that has issues.

Even if the door is open -- the print job is released and money is debited from user's account.


Money is not taken off -- if the printer is "off-line".


     Seeking guides or examples on how the following can be accomplished....

I'd like to use Notify to send a message or messages if the following occurs --

     If a printer has an issue -- such as a defective sensor, jammed printer or other.

     Message might say -- "printer you selected is out of order --- please seek alternate printer".

     And on top of that prevent the print job from arriving at the release station.


Does anyone have examples or has a similar scenario running?


Thank you,
