Job Name

A Job name is a unique identifier for each print job. It helps you find and print
your job from the printing system’s operation panel. When you send a print job
using one of the Job storage (e-MPS) options, you can assign a custom name
to the job or use the name of the application file.

For Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, you can choose to include or omit the
application name from the application defined Job name. You can also ensure
that jobs in printing system memory are not replaced by new jobs having the
same Job name.

Don’t Use Application Name

Don’t use application name is an option to remove the application name from
the job name in job storage features. By selecting Don’t use application name,
the file name you choose appears clearly in the job list. This feature is
applicable only when printing from Microsoft Word or PowerPoint.

Overwrite Job Name

Overwrite job name is an option to ensure that a saved print job is not replaced
in printing system memory by a new job having the same Job name. If a user

sent. This feature also helps you to track when print jobs were sent from the

Use job name + date and time

This option adds the current date and time to the end of the Job name. The
previous print job with the same job name remains in the printing system

Selecting a Job Name

You can select a Job name to use with Job storage (e-MPS) features, so that
you can find your job in the job list displayed on the printing system’s operation
panel. The selected Job name is saved with the print job when the job is sent to
printing system memory.
