Jobs settings tab


General Job Settings

Here you can set the Maximum job size (default size is 600MB).

In the Office file formats subsection, you can select the method of processing and printing the Office format files. You can select from Convert to PDF (default) and Via a Windows printer. For details check Processing documents in Office formats.

Notifications on Job Receiving Errors

Notifications on job receiving errors settings

Check the Notify the administrator via email and/or the Notify the job sender via email boxes, to send notification emails about refused jobs.

The job sender is always notified via MyQ Desktop Client, if installed.

Job Parser

Job parser settings

Here you can set the job parsing mode, which dictates which level of job details will be reported. You need to activate the Job Parser if you want to know job details (page count, color, paper size, etc.) before the job is printed. It is necessary for features like credit, quota and PHP scripting. There are three levels of job parsing available:

  • Basic (lower CPU usage) - This method doesn't estimate number of mono and color pages.

  • Standard (default option) - This method will estimate the number of monochrome and color pages. This method is optimal for most office documents.

  • Enhanced (higher CPU usage) - Every page of the document will be rendered and estimated as monochrome or color based on the rendered data. This method is recommended when printing complex PostScript or PDF documents and facing inaccuracy in Standard job parsing method.

Jobs via LPR Protocol

Jobs via LPR protocol settings

Here you can enable the Jobs via LPR protocol feature (enabled by default). If it is deactivated, MyQ cannot receive print jobs via LPR.

The server knows the job sender (to be able to notify MyQ Desktop Client about job processing) through the hostname sent by the LPR protocol. The maximum length of the hostname is 31 characters.

The maximum job size received over LPR is 100GB. Jobs with a size of over 2GB are described as: "More than 2GB"; for jobs below 2GB, the real size is displayed.

It is recommended to keep the Jobs via LPR protocol option enabled. If it is disabled, jobs sent from print drivers cannot be received by MyQ.

You can also change the port here, although it is recommended to use the default setting (515).

Jobs via IPPS

Jobs via IPPS settings

Here you can enable printing jobs via the IPPS protocol. You can also change the port here (default is 8631).

For more information, see Jobs via IPPS.

Jobs via Mobile Devices

Jobs via mobile devices settings

This feature allows you to use mobile printing via MyQ X Mobile Client and AirPrint or Mopria. It is enabled by default.

For more information, see MyQ X Mobile Client app, and mobile printing via AirPrint or Mopria.

Jobs via Email

Jobs via Email settings

Here you can enable or disable the Jobs via Email feature, which enables receiving print jobs sent via email. The email attachment is processed and sent as a print job (the email body can be processed as well). PDF/A, TXT and JPEG formats are supported. For MS Office formats, MS Office or LibreOffice must be installed on the MyQ server.

You can select the Allowed users who are able to send Jobs via Email and manage which queues will be used for these jobs.

You can set up an Email Box, a specified email which will be regularly checked for print jobs, the inbox will be emptied automatically. Enter the Type of box (Microsoft Exchange Online, Gmail, Generic IMAP server, or Generic POP3 server), the Security (none, TLS, or STARTTLS), the Server, Port, User, Password, and Polling interval in seconds.

Additionally, in the Settings section you can:

  • Enable the option to Always generate a new PIN after a job is received, this will generate a new PIN for a user each time they send a job via email.

  • Enable Print email body, which will print the main text of an email in addition to any attachments.

  • Dictate Default print options for jobs via email, choose from B&W, Toner saving, and Duplex.
