Change printjob owner

I need a simple way for a tech to change the owner of a printjob.

Users print to an OCE print server, the tech verifies the job and
forwards it to NDPSprinter....problem is that all printjobs are no
w owned by the tech...instead of the original sender.

I can't find anything in JRBUtils and the action is too deeply nested
in PCounter

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Morning,

I haven't come across this sort of problem before, but i was wondering
why a tech has to verify the job, can the students not just print to the
printer and be charged accordingly by Pcounter?

Alternatively, what we do with an acetate printer is to open the
drawers, that way if a student prints to it and actually wants the print
out on acetate they have to come up and ask for it, the acetate is put
in and the job is printed. Jobs that are sent to it by mistake are
deleted if no one has come up within a day. This setup might be easier
than having someone take ownership of a job and then try and change the
ownership again.

Hope this helps

Cheers

Graham

Re: Change printjob owner

Users (faculty, not students) print to our OCE Variaprint 2110....but
we don't let them send directly as this is our high speed high volume
duplicator
http://www.oce.com/en/Products/Printers-copiers-plotters/Black+and+white+production/Cutsheet/vp2110/default.htm

a typical printjob is 40 copies of a 30 page document/3-holed/stapled

They send the job to a server which is then verified as to whether the
sender got the formatting correct. The tech verifies it then sends it
along to the variaprint.
These printers are monitored by PCounter and so the username is
entered into the csv logfile.
My issue is that the username is always the tech and I don't know
which faculty user sent the job

Still open to suggestions,
Cheers
Kirk
