Options

Once you have added cloud storage, documents printed Via the cloud (including Chrome print) or as Mobile print from phones and tablets, Android and iOS/iPadOS, will go via your cloud storage, rather than the Printix Cloud. In addition you can enable storage of pending documents in your secure cloud storage:

  • Store print anywhere documents
    Check this if you want print anywhere documents to be stored in the cloud.
  • Store print later documents
    Check this if you want print later documents to be stored in the cloud. Be aware that print later documents are typically larger in size compared to print anywhere documents.

Which documents go via the cloud?

Scenario Printix Cloud Own cloud storage
Print anywhere Documents are stored on the computer that submitted the document. If the release printer is on another network the document is sent via Printix Cloud at the time of the release. Documents are stored on the computer that submitted the document and if Store print anywhere documents is checked, the documents are also stored in your cloud storage.
Print later Documents are stored on the computer that submitted the document. If the release printer is on another network the document is sent via Printix Cloud at the time of the release. Documents are stored on the computer that submitted the document and if Store print later documents is checked, the documents are also stored in your cloud storage.
Via the cloud Documents are sent via Printix Cloud. Documents are sent via your cloud storage.
Chrome print Documents are sent via Printix Cloud. Documents to be released (anywhere and later) are stored in the Printix Cloud. Documents are sent via your cloud storage. Documents to be release (anywhere and later) are stored in your cloud storage.
Mobile print Documents are sent via Printix Cloud. Documents to be released (anywhere and later) are stored in the Printix Cloud. Documents are sent via your cloud storage. Documents to be release (anywhere and later) are stored in your cloud storage.
Capture Captured documents are sent via Printix Cloud. Captured documents to be sent to email are stored for 1 day in the Printix Cloud. Captured documents are sent via your cloud storage. Captured documents to be sent to email are returned to your cloud storage after processing (OCR) in the Printix Cloud. Capture with Mobile requires properly configured Cross-origin Resource Sharing (CORS) rules to be setup for the used Azure Blob Storage. Scanned documents will not be stored on Google Cloud Storage (coming later)

To reduce Internet network traffic, it will always try to retrieve the release document from the computer that submitted the document if the computer is online, and it is on the same network as the printer. Otherwise, it will retrieve it from the cloud storage.

Documents that go via an own cloud storage are protected by time- and session-restricted credentials issued by the Printix Cloud. Printix Client does not store cloud storage credentials/keys.
