Hi, this is Steve from Simple Office Solutions here in Santa Rosa, California in Sonoma County. Have you had a document that you like to print on your copier, but you don’t want other people to see such as the payroll document or maybe a financial statement? This option is called ‘Job Retention’ (on Sharp copiers).

It basically starts on the computer where you’re going to start to print. And as you go to print, you select your printer and go to properties of that job. We’ll choose print. Now with your copy chosen, we go to properties. Under job handling, you’ll see a setting…set. Under ‘Job Handling’, you’ll see a setting for retention.

Now, the three options here, generally speaking. Since this is a secure document, you’ll probably want to add a password to it. And we’ll put something in simple… 1,2,3,4,5. We basically enable the retention. we want to ‘hold only’ because we’re only going to print once. And hit Okay. And then print are job.

So, if we go to our short… Sharp copier, we’ll see the job is not printed yet. We go to file retrieve hard drive. Go to the main folder. And we’ll see our job highlighted. Touch it to select it. Touch the password entry screen. Enter the new password that you entered on the PC. Tap OK. And I am going to print that document.

Since we specified ‘hold only’ on the PC side. This job will print and be wipe out the hard drive. So, this gives you control over printing your documents that no one else can see them while you’re walking to the copier.

If you have any questions, please respond below. Thank you.
