Chapter 7. Printing and Faxing > Scheduling Print Jobs

Scheduling Print Jobs

Sometimes it's just not the best time to print a document. For example, it's 10:00AM and the network printer is jammed with jobs being printed by fellow office workers, who are attempting to get their documents out before lunchtime. You know that by 12:15PM everyone is out to lunch, and the printers are free, but you don't want to lose a quarter of your lunch break just to click the Print button. The solution is to instruct the sending application to click the Print button for you, while you enjoy your much-deserved break.

Schedule Print Jobs

Open the document that you want to schedule for printing at a later time.

Click the File menu, and then click Print.

Click the Options pop-up, and then set the specifics for the print job (number of pages, paper, quality).

Click the Options pop-up, and then click Scheduler.

Click the At option, and then select a time for printing the document.

IMPORTANT When you schedule a job for future printing, you can only schedule into the future by 24 hours (23 hours and 59 minutes).

Click the Priority pop-up, and then select the importance of this job, over other jobs that may be scheduled to print at the same time.

Click Print.

Quit your application.
