PrintScope Kiosk Operator Guide

Overview

Welcome to the PrintScope Operator Guide.
PrintScope provides insights on the behaviour, and records print usage, of users as they go about using the
printing environment. It is the primary data processing, storage and viewing software module to which all other
software and hardware services and clients connect and pass information to. PrintScope makes use of
authentication and authorisation functionality for users to identify themselves to the system, when they want to
copy, print, scan or fax. This kiosk operator guide will explain the different functions of PrintScope, and provide
step-by-step instructions to perform various tasks, in your role as Kiosk Operator.

Understanding The Dashboard

The home screen of PrintScope is the Dashboard.

In your role as PrintScope Kiosk Operator, you will be responsible for monitoring and managing jobs and users in

displays this information via widgets (small programs running within the PrintScope application), that can be
customised to some extent. You can change the order in which the information is displayed, by simply clicking
and dragging a widget to where you want it to be. By default your dashboard will display the following widgets,
start top-left: Performance Chart, Current Jobs and History. Let's look at these in more detail.

Performance Chart
This widget displays a real-time chart of the printing
activity, showing colour prints, black-and-white prints
and the ratio between the two.

How do I change my password?
Click on your username in the top-right corner of your screen, this will open the Manage Account screen. Enter

What is the difference between a printer and a device?
Printer
This is a logical printer, and it's not the physical device. It is the bundle of settings you need to make the print
device run. It exists as the software on the print server that you use to configure settings for print job processing
and routing for the physical print device.

Device
This is the physical device that does the printing. Local print devices are connected to a hardware port on the
computer requesting the printing or they are network-connected printers being printed to directly from the
workstation. Network print devices are connected either to another computer and shared or directly to the
network and shared from a print server.
