With the Quota feature activated, users cannot print, copy or scan after they reach or exceed their quota limit. They can view their current quotas on their session on the embedded terminal.
The embedded terminal's behavior depends on the quota settings in MyQ. When setting up Quota in the MyQ Web administrator interface, you can disable one or more operations after the quota is reached or exceeded:
the user is allowed to finish their current session (all pending tasks are processed)
the user is automatically logged out after the current job is finished
the user is immediately logged out and the current job is stopped.
For further information about setting quotas, see Quota in the MyQ Print Server Guide.
If a quota is reached or exceeded, the corresponding action appears dimmed on the terminal.
Action taken when a user reaches a copy quota with immediate application
If the copy job would excess the quota, it is canceled and the user is informed that they do not have enough resources for the operation.
If a job does not include additional information from the job parser, users can start it as long as no quotas disabling print are already reached, although it may be stopped half-way through.
Scan jobs are always finished before the action is taken.
Print jobs with additional information from the job parser
Print jobs received with the job parser activated include additional information, such as number of pages, color, and price.
Jobs exceeding the quota cannot be printed. Users cannot use the Print all action as long as the overall size of all of the print jobs is larger than what is allowed by the quota.
