One tap copying. After the user taps this action, the page is immediately copied. You can define the copy parameters in MyQ.

With the Easy Copy feature, users do not have to go to the often complicated and confusing copy screen of the printing device — they can copy directly from the MyQ terminal home screen with a single touch. Upon tapping the button, MyQ can simply proceed copying using the default settings of the printing device, or it can use different values of the Easy Copy action parameters.

The Easy Copy default settings of the printing device can be configured in the HP Web UI, in Copy/Print > Copy Settings > Default Job Options (supported from MyQ HP Embedded terminal 8.2 patch 3+). After changing the parameters in the device’s web UI, the remote setup or a restart of the services is required for updating the default parameters.

HP Web UI - Setting default Easy Copy settings

If the parameter’s Value is set to Default in the MyQ web administrator interface, the terminal will replace it with the device’s default value. If the device’s default value cannot be mapped to MyQ, Default will be displayed.

By adding multiple Easy Copy action nodes and giving rights to different users or groups, you can create a variety of copying options for the selected users and groups.

On the Parameters tab, you can select from a number of options for each parameter. All parameters are dependent on the particular printing device type. Therefore, some values might not be available.
