eFORMz CloudPrint Agent

Overview


eFORMz CloudPrint is a desktop application built with activeFORMz used to communicate with the eFORMz Cloud Platform. It allows clients to process print jobs stored in a remote print queue. eFORMz CloudPrint users configure the default printer, remote print queue, check-in interval and other settings through a UI on the desktop. These settings are then used by a background service to monitor and execute remote print jobs. Multiple eFORMz CloudPrint agents can exist in a single organization. Each organization will have their own dedicated eFORMz Cloud platform instance that allows them to view remote print queue(s) and known printer status. 

Components


eFORMz CloudPrint Service – A background service that periodically checks a remote print queue for print jobs.

eFORMz CloudPrint Tray Application – Desktop Tray application which allows a user to configure settings such as default printer, check-in interval, proxy information, etc.

eFORMz Cloud Remote Print Queue – Web-based view of remote print tasks. This web page provides a real-time view of items in the remote print queue.

eFORMz Cloud Remote Printer Status – Web-based view of printers and their current status. This web page shows all default printers currently in use/assigned to eFORMz CloudPrint applications.

Remote Print Queue


The remote print queue is accessed via an HTTP(S) request. If a print job is available, the request returns a print payload to the eFORMz Cloud Print Service. The payload is then sent to the printer assigned to the default printer setting.

Features


Identification – Specify username/password. The username/password is used to identify a request.

Proxy – Optional feature which allows user to set proxy information to connect to remote queue

Printer List/Selection – Displays a list of “known” printers and allows the user to select a default printer for print jobs

Printer Status Monitoring – Checks status of default printer and sends an update to the eFORMz Cloud Platform. It reports if the printer is available, offline, there’s low toner, etc.
