deny printers in license server Follow

Hi

I'm facing the following problem:
We use 39 label printers, while having 40 licenses. Our printer count is SLS is at times 40 or higher. This is because of wrongly choosen printers by the users, for example document printers instead of the label printers. Is there a possibility to whitelist printers in SLS, so that only allowed label printers can be used for printing from BarTender? If not, is this something that could be implemented in future releases?

Kind regards
Deman Bart

One thing I would suggest is using the "keep" check box in License Server and check each printer you need to always be licensed. This should avoid printing to the wrong printer and taking up a license. There is already a feature request about adding white/blacklist type feature for SLS, I'll add you to the list.

Thank you for the information. I'm looking forward to the feature and will use the "keep" check box in the meantime.

How can I replicate the "keep" ceck box in BarTender 2019?

I think you need to look at the Printer Pooling options and set up pools with printers with High Priority etc so they have priority to the licence slots.
