iPrint Client Management Question

I just recently discovered the iPrint Client Management feature thanks to the recent bug fix and think that this thing looks great but have a question/concern about how it works. If I had a rule for my IT group that installed our local printer using iCM, does this mean that this printer would be installed every time that we sign into a computer that has iPrint? For example, I have to work on someone else's computer and sign in as myself, I am assuming that the printer will then get installed there too... which I really want it to install for someone's assigned computer, not any computer that they sign into.

Another case, I have a receptionist area that has admins from all different departments that provide coverage, and another example, my presentation systems can be used by anyone in our organization... in both of these cases whatever printers are assigned to whoever logs in will be installed, correct?

Depends how you log in. If you log in also into edir, then yes, they
will be installed on each computer you log in but if you only log in
into the computer and not on edir, then no, they will not be installed
as icm is an edir feature.

if you log into edir, yes. If you log into computer only, then no. you
can also use the option to set the printers as temporally so even
they’re installed on the pc when admin user logs in, they will be remove
as soon as Pc is rebooted.

On the icm page in imanager, printer configuration, click on the
question mark on the right up corner to get the explanation.

Automatically Installing Printers#

iPrint Client Management Printer Configuration lets you designate
printers to be downloaded and installed automatically on user
workstations when users log in to the network. These printers appear in
the user’s printers folder, ready for use. You can also use this feature
to remove printers, assign a printer to be the default printer, and set
a printer to be a temporary printer so that it is removed when the
workstation is rebooted.
