Handy PowerShell hacks for PaperCut MF/NG

PaperCutter Alec had a major life experience earlier this year – migrating from MacBook to a Windows 10 laptop.

The change led him to the mysterious wonders of PowerShell and .NET Core (as you do).

In this post, Alec shares his latest PowerShell discoveries.

Controlling access to your PaperCut admin dashboard

We’ve all got that one person in our organization that likes to fiddle. The one who changes settings without knowing what it is or who it affects.

That’s probably the reason you keep the PaperCut admin dashboard hidden away from users who may find it useful to run reports, add credit, and manage shared accounts.

12 quick wins in PaperCut MF you should try

So you’re looking into print management software to solve your printing problem.

Often it’s that one burning hot issue you want to solve, right? Turns out there are other issues that you can solve at the same time that provide an even bigger benefit.

These are 12 quick wins that have big impacts on the way you print.

NEW IN 19.1: Fantastic scripting powers and ways to use them

With Device Scripting joining print scripting, today’s PaperCut admin has unprecedented control over user printing behavior.

From conditional copier access to on-the-fly pricing, it’s about creating rules to improve how people go about printing.

Join me in exploring three scripts bound to be an excellent starting point for any workplace.

How to keep your documents secure for life

Organizations around the world are mindful of print security. That’s good.

However, most people don’t think about securing a document after it’s collected from the printer.

Here at PaperCut, the lifetime of a document is at the front of our minds.

How to hide document names in print queues

There I was, minding my own business, printing off the latest set of sales reports for the weekly meeting – when I spotted it.

In the print queue display was our HR director’s print job, titled: “Mike Johnson – Termination”

How can you avoid this from happening in your workplace?

Where can I find my PaperCut login details?

Where can I find my PaperCut login details?

That’s the number one question we get from PaperCut users. In almost every case, it’s a student not knowing how to log in to their PaperCut dashboard to top up their balance.

Here’s how you can help them.

How much memory does PaperCut use?

A PaperCut user pinged me on Twitter, saying our software was a resource hog.

His accompanying screenshot seemed to confirm his words.

Surely not, I thought. Has PaperCut been secretly hoarding memory? What might the RAMifications be?

I engaged support guru Josh to solve this mystery.

How much paper are you saving each year? Find out now

There was I, casually perusing the support queue in my role as person responsible for perusing the support queue, when suddenly a question came through from a PaperCut user.

“Is there a report in PaperCut that shows the number of pages not collected? It’d be great to report on the environmental impact of unreleased print jobs.”

Why yes! Yes there is.

Alec and his beloved print management integrations

I’m pretty handy at sorting out my mother-in-law’s internet problems. And my brother’s laptop viruses. But when it comes to APIs, my knowledge runs out after “try turning it off and on again”.

So I caught up with resident API and integrations geek Alec for a better understanding of the role that 3rd party integrations play in the PaperCut ecosystem.

The easy way to selectively delete PaperCut users

I love making life easier. And let’s face it – some repetitive administrator tasks are prime targets for streamlining. Take the case of a boatload of inactive PaperCut users. Removing them’s too much trouble, but letting them take up valuable licenses is a big no-no. Here’s where scripting can really help.

The day I discovered HITRUST

“Never a Dull Moment” (#NADM) is a blog series about the life and times (ok, mainly the times) of Americas Presales Specialist Tanner Dull.

I love talking to PaperCut callers about their print problems. One such caller wanted to solve a problem in her medical business. She mentioned HITRUST, a term I’d not encountered before. Here’s what happened …
