HP Designjet T2300 eMFP Product Series - Job queue management

Introduction
You can manage your product's job queues from the front panel, the Embedded Web Server or the HP Utility.
  • To use the front panel, you must be standing in front of the product. The front panel gives access to both of the job queues: the Print & Copy jobs, and the Scan jobs.
  • You can use the Embedded Web Server or the HP Utility from any remote computer with network access to the product, but you can access only the Print & Copy jobs. The Scan jobs can be accessed only from the front panel.
The job queues in the front panel
To see the job queues on the front panel, press on the home screen. You can choose Print & Copy Jobs or Scan Jobs from the tabs at the top of the screen.
Job queue page
The job queue page shows all jobs that are available in whichever job queue you have selected. The print & copy queue includes jobs that are being received, parsed, rendered, printed and already printed. The scan queue includes jobs that are being scanned and jobs that have been scanned.
Each line shows the name of the job and its status. Scan and copy jobs are assigned automatically-generated names. For more information on a particular job, including a preview of the job, press the line showing the job.
Jobs that cannot be completed for any reason appear at the top of the queue.
Job preview
The printer generates a JPEG file for each incoming job, which can be displayed as a preview of the job. Job preview is available once the job is processed.
  note:
Do not try to preview a job with more than 64 pages, which may cause software problems.
To preview a job, first press the name of the job in the job queue. The front panel displays a page of information about the job. Then press to see the preview.
  note:
Previews may be blocked by an administrator, in which case you will not be able to see them.
When the preview is displayed, you can press it to zoom in on it. Press it again to zoom out.
You can also press to preview the previous job, or to preview the next job.
Select when to print a job in the queue
  note:
The When To Start Printing options cannot be used with PostScript jobs.
You can select at what point you want to print a file you have in the queue. Press , then , then Setup > Job management options > When to start printing.
There are three options you can select:
  • When After Processing is selected, the printer waits until the whole page has been processed and then it starts to print. This is the slowest setting but ensures the best print quality in large or complex prints.
  • When Immediately is selected, the printer prints the page as it is processed. This is the quickest setting, but the printer may stop halfway through a print to process data. This setting is not recommended for complex images with dense color.
  • When Optimized is selected (this is the default setting), the printer calculates the best time to begin printing the page. It is usually the best compromise between the After Processing and Immediately settings.
Prioritize a job in the queue
You can select a job in the queue and make it the next one to be printed. After selecting the job, press Move to front.
If nesting is turned on, the prioritized job may still be nested with others. If you really want this job to be printed next, and not nested with others, first turn nesting off and then move it to the front of the queue as described above.
In the following cases, the Move to front button is not displayed:
  • The job is already at the front of the queue.
  • The job is on hold—in this case the Resume printing button is displayed instead.
  • The job has finished—in this case the Reprint button is displayed instead.
  • The job has some error condition.
Pause a job in the queue
If you select the job in the queue that is currently printing, you will see a Pause button, which you can press to pause printing. The Pause button then changes to a Resume button, which you can press to resume printing.
Alternatively, you can press the Options button at the top right of the job queue screen, and then press Pause printing.
Reprint a job from the queue
To reprint an already-printed job, select the job from the queue, then select Reprint.
When reprinting a print job, you cannot change the print settings, because the job has already been rasterized. However, you can also print a scanned job from the scan queue, and in this case you can change the print settings.
Delete a job from the queue
Under normal circumstances, there is no need to delete a job from the queue after printing it, as it will just fall off the end of the queue as more files are sent. However, if you have sent a file in error, and want to avoid printing it, you can simply select the job and then press Delete.
  note:
An administrator password may be required.
In the same way, you can delete a job that has not been printed yet.
If the job is currently being printed (its status is printing), you can press Cancel and then Delete.
Delete all jobs
To delete all jobs in a queue, press the Options button at the top right of the job queue screen, and then press Delete all Print & Copy jobs or Delete all Scan jobs.
  note:
An administrator password may be required.
Turn off the job queue
To turn off the job queue, press , then , then Setup > Job management options > Enable queue > Off.
The print job queue in the Embedded Web Server or HP Utility
The HP Utility provides a different way of accessing the Embedded Web Server's job management facilities, but the facilities are exactly the same whether you use the Embedded Web Server or the HP Utility.
To see the print queue in the Embedded Web Server, select Job queue in the Main tab.
Job queue page
By default, access to the job queue is open to all users. An administrator can set a password so that users are required to enter a password for:
  • Seeing job previews
  • Canceling or deleting jobs
The job queue page shows all jobs that are available in the print queue. The print queue includes jobs that are being received, parsed, rendered, printed and already printed.
The Embedded Web Server displays the following information for each print job:
  • Preview: Click the icon to see the job preview. The job preview is available once the job is processed.
  • File name: Click the file name to see the properties of the job.
  • Status: Gives the current job status.
  • Pages: Number of pages in the job.
  • Copies: Number of copies printed.
  • Date: Date and time the product received the job.
  • User: The user's name.
Jobs in the queue can be sorted by any of the information items (except Preview) by clicking on the title of the corresponding column. You can perform the following operations on one or all jobs in the queue:
  • Cancel: Cancels the selected jobs. You are asked to confirm before the job is canceled. The job remains stored in the product, but will not be printed unless you click Reprint.
  • Hold: Holds the select jobs until you click Continue to print.
  • Continue: All selected jobs, which are on hold, continue printing.
  • Reprint: Prints more copies of a job. Type the number of copies (default 1, maximum 99) and click Print.
  • Move to front: Sends all selected jobs to the top of the job queue.
  • Delete: Deletes selected jobs from the job queue. You are asked to confirm before the job is deleted.
      note:
    The Delete operation can be disabled by an administrator.
  • Refresh: Refreshes the page, ensuring the information is updated.
      note:
    The job queue page does not automatically update.
Job preview
The printer generates a JPEG file for each incoming job, which can be displayed as a preview of the job. Job preview is available once the job is processed.
  note:
Do not try to preview a job with more than 64 pages, which may cause software problems.
To reach the preview page, click the magnifying glass icon, which appears in the Preview column on the job queue page. The preview page shows the following job details along with a thumbnail preview of the job:
  • File name: The file name of the job.
  • Loaded paper: The type of paper loaded in the printer.
  • Job dimensions: The dimensions of the job.
To see a larger preview of the job, click either the job thumbnail or the magnifying glass icon, which appears on the right hand side of the printer image.
  note:
Browsers without the Adobe Flash plug-in show the job image as yellow shaded. Browsers that have the Adobe Flash plug-in version 7 and above show an enhanced preview of the job image inside the paper loaded in the printer.
Select when to print a job in the queue
  note:
The When To Start Printing options cannot be used with PostScript jobs.
You can select at what point you want to print a file you have in the queue. Select the Setup tab, then Printer settings > Start printing.
There are three options you can select:
  • When After Processing is selected, the printer waits until the whole page has been processed and then it starts to print. This is the slowest setting but ensures the best print quality in large or complex prints.
  • When Immediately is selected, the printer prints the page as it is processed. This is the quickest setting, but the printer may stop halfway through a print to process data. This setting is not recommended for complex images with dense color.
  • When Optimized is selected (this is the default setting), the printer calculates the best time to begin printing the page. It is usually the best compromise between the After Processing and Immediately settings.
Prioritize a job in the queue
You can select any job in the queue and make it the next one to be printed. After selecting the job, click Reprint.
If nesting is turned on, the prioritized job may still be nested with others. If you really want this job to be printed next, and not nested with others, first turn nesting off and then move it to the front of the queue as described above.
Delete a job from the queue
Under normal circumstances, there is no need to delete a job from the queue after printing it, as it will just fall off the end of the queue as more files are sent. However, if you have sent a file in error, and want to avoid printing it, you can simply select the job and then select Delete.
In the same way, you can delete a job that has not been printed yet.
If the job is currently being printed (its status is printing), you can select Cancel and then Delete.
Reprint or copy a job in the queue
To reprint or make extra copies of any job in the queue, select the job in the Embedded Web Server and click the Reprint icon, then specify the number of copies you want. The job will be moved to the top of the queue. To make more than one print of a non-printed job in the queue from the front panel, select the job and choose Copies, then specify the number of copies required. This overrides any value set by your software.
  note:
If Rotate was On when you sent the file, every copy will be rotated.
  note:
You cannot use this method for PCL3GUI jobs. To reprint old jobs that are PCL3GUI, you may be able to use your operating system's printer spooler, if you have already set the spooler to save old jobs. This facility depends on your operating system.
  note:
When reprinting a print job, you cannot change the print settings, because the job has already been rasterized.
Job status messages
These are the possible job status messages, approximately in the order in which they may be seen:
  • Receiving: the printer is receiving the job from the computer
  • Waiting to process: the job has been received by the printer and is waiting to be rendered (for jobs submitted through the Embedded Web Server only)
  • Processing: the printer is parsing and rendering the job
  • Preparing to print: the printer is performing writing system checks before printing the job
  • Waiting to print: the job is waiting for the print engine to become free to proceed with printing
  • Waiting for nest: the printer is set up with Nesting=On and is waiting for other jobs in order to complete the nest and proceed with printing
  • On hold: the job was sent with the on hold for preview option and is on hold
      note:
    Do not send a job for preview with more than 64 pages, this may cause the driver software to crash.
      note:
    If the printer hangs up while printing a job, and the queue facility is turned on, the partially printed job will appear in the queue as on hold when the printer is next turned on. When you resume the job, it will start printing at the page at which it was interrupted.
  • On hold for paper: the job can't be printed because the right paper is not loaded in the printer. Load the required paper, see Printer paper handlingPrinter paper handling, and click Continue to resume the job
  • On hold for accounting: the job can't be printed because the printer requires all jobs to have an account ID: enter the account ID and then click Continue to resume the job
      note:
    To set an account ID, see Require account IDRequire account ID.
  • Printing
  • Drying
  • Cutting paper
  • Ejecting page
  • Canceling: the job is being canceled, but will remain in the printer job queue
  • Deleting: the job is being deleted from the printer
  • Printed
  • Canceled: the job has been canceled by the printer
  • Canceled by user
  • Empty job: the job does not contain anything to print
Reactivate a job on hold
When the printer puts a job on hold you receive an alert, see AlertsAlerts, which explains why the job is on hold. Follow the instructions on the screen to remove the hold and continue printing.
