Questions & answers

Q: The printer didn't disappear?
A: It is most likely that your computer has been automatically given that printer due to the group you are in. If you are a line lead, you will be in a group that is automatically given printers that are on the factory floor near you. These printers cannot be removed unless you contact IT to change the group you are      in. For example, if you have moved from Freeburg to Eldon and no longer need the Freeburg printers assigned to you, IT will need to change you from the Freeburg group to the Eldon group and you will automatically receive the Eldon printers. 

Q: The printer is asking for a username and password to remove it?
A: Please contact IT. We are working on a way to eliminate that problem to give more control for users to manager their list of printers.
