Locked Print

Overview

Ricoh printers support locked print jobs. Using this method, you can print a normal job, but require a passcode to be entered at the printer before the job will print. This is useful if you are printing something secure or if you want to make sure the job is not printed until you are standing in front of the printer.

You can set up locked print two different ways: locked print for all jobs, or locked print for a single job. Follow the directions below to set up locked print.

Locked print for a single job

When printing, click the desired printer and click Preferences

From this menu, select Create Own ID under the User ID drop-down. Type in a username that you will recognize under Enter User ID. This is the username that will show up on the printer to identify your print job. Enter a 4-8 digit passcode under Password. This will be the passcode that you will use at the printer to print the job.
