What is Pull Print Delegation?

Celiveo Pull Print Delegation is part of the Celiveo Virtual Printer and allows Pull Print job delegation upon printing for another user to release.
In a few clicks, a user can delegate Pull Print to another Active Directory User chosen within a list accessible from a button in the Windows Taskbar.
The selected user can then collect the print jobs upon authentication on a Celiveo-enabled device.
Celiveo Pull Print Delegation is available with Celiveo Business+ and Enterprise Editions, part of the Celiveo Virtual Printer for Windows.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens when the delegation is activated?

Subsequent print jobs are stored in the system for the user selected in the delegation process.
That user will see that document in his jobs list when he reaches an MFP to connect his print jobs.

How is that delegated user informed there is a print job for him?

The delegating user needs to use his standard communication methods (IM, direct communication) to ask the delegated user to collect his documents. The concept of email communication has been rejected by beta testers as they already have too many emails and this is not real-time. Using their existing IM such as Skype for Business or Teams had their preference.

Celiveo will continue to innovate and add more capabilities in the near future.

Can the delegated print jobs expire?
Yes, delegated print jobs are like the non-delegated print jobs and expire if not collected after the predefined time set by the administrator.

Who will be shown as the job owner in tracking?
The delegated user becomes the job owner as soon as the delegator prints for him/her.

If I have a quota in place, what quota will be used?
The delegated and delegator are usually from the same OU or quota group, the quota of the user who releases the document is the one debited with the pages cost/count. We don’t recommend applying a personal user quota if print delegation is installed for such users.
