Under normal circumstances, print jobs are sent to the MyQ server where they are stored and wait for release. With Device Spooling enabled, a print job is sent directly to the device and saved to its hard disk. It waits there to be released in the standard way.
For locally spooled jobs in online/offline server mode the printer policies are applied by the same way like for pull-print or direct jobs spooled on the server.
For locally spooled jobs in online/offline server mode the job policy color only is applied. All other job policies are ignored.
If a user logs into the embedded terminal after the policies are set, the policies are updated.
If a user prints directly over Device Spooling and they don't physically log in after the policies are set, the policies are only updated after 5 minutes.
Locally spooled color jobs are not displayed when color print is restricted.
When the printing device is in deep sleep mode, Device Spooling is not available and an error is shown on Windows spooler.
Even though it is possible for a user to use both print to server and Device Spooling, this option is not recommended. The following problems may appear: jobs are not sorted and printed in the correct order, the terminal display might not be correctly refreshed.
