Quick Printing Tool a Tremendous Time Saver!

“Always looking for more ways to simplify the end-user experience, Canon has taken another step forward with its iW Desktop Quick Printing Tool function,” said Sweetnam. “Super convenient, the Quick Printing Tool allows documents created in a variety of formats to be dragged and dropped into a hot folder icon on the desktop that represents the output device. Once in the hot folder, users can print, fax, convert to PDF and preview files, all without ever having to open the application.”

Canon iW Desktop – Universal login Manager - Buyer's Laboratory AwardUsers can create multiple hot folders per device, with each having its own specific print preferences. For example, a user could set up a drag-and-drop hot folder for duplex with corner stapling and another for booklets with covers. “And while some advanced features such as variable data printing (VDP) and the ability to create hot folders will end once the 45-day trial period of iW Desktop expires, all existing quick printing workflows remain active, continuing to provide users with this invaluable time-saving feature,” said Sweetnam.

The Quick Printing Tool function also provides feedback to users and administrators, including device status, job status and job completion notifications, and users can link to Canon’s Remote User Interface for more detailed feedback, including paper source, remaining paper and paper size and remaining toner.

“Canon developed the iW Desktop Quick Printing Tool to help address everyday office publishing challenges through easy drag-and-drop print and PDF publishing right from your desktop,” said Canon’s Wrighton. “We are pleased that Buyers Lab has recognized the uniqueness of this tool with this award for ‘Outstanding Achievement in Innovation.’”
