The round-robin policy remembers the previously tried printer and schedules the job for the next destination in the list. 

INTELLLIscribe round robin printing


Once INTELLIscribe is set up for round-robin printing, it prints to printer "A", then to printer "B", then to printer "C", and so on, then back to "A" when the last printer on the list is visited.

INTELLIscribe remembers the last printer it sent a job to and automatically sends the next print job to the next printer on the list.

  • When to use: Use this policy when you have multiple printers which are similar in print speed or paper tray size and want them to be used in a predictable manner, perhaps because the job sizes are consistent.
  • Destination Selection: The print job is scheduled on the "next" destination in the list.
  • Failure Handling: The next destination is tried.
