Set up Job Code

In order to set a job code for a Ricoh on a Mac, you need to set a custom preset for the printer. 

1. After installing the printer, open up any program and navigate to File -> Print.  If you see this condensed view, select the down arrow for the expanded view.

2. Under User ID, enter an identifiable name. It can be your campus username or just your first name if you are in a small department. 

3. Under Job Type you can select either "Normal Print" or "Hold Print."

        a. Normal Print prints as soon as you send the job.

        b Hold Print send the job to the printer, but it doesn't print until you release it from the control panel of the device. This is useful if you are in a large area.

5. Make a name:

        1. Type in an informative preset name. Generally, the printer queue name and Black Only (if you set it above to black only) will suffice.

        2. Select "Okay."
