**** ACCOUNTING CODES FOR XEROX ****

1.If your department uses account codes, in the Print Dialog box, under the Xerox Features drop down, click on the Paper/Output drop down box and choose Advanced.


2. Scroll down to Configuration and click on Accounting…


3. In the window that pops up, choose Xerox Standard Accounting


4. You can customize your options in here. You can choose Always Prompt or Do Not Prompt, for instance. Your account code needs to be entered into the Default User ID field. Click OK


5. This setting can also be saved as a preset by clicking on "Default Settings" and choosing the "Save Current Settings as Preset" option.

*** For devices with Xerox Standard Accounting (that require an ID to use), you need to be sure to use the System print dialog box. In products such as Google Chrome, and the Adobe product suite, they use their own printer dialog boxes - for these, be sure to switch to the System dialog (or click on the "Printer..." button in Adobe products, then "Print" from there). Otherwise, you will not be prompted for the print code, and your print job will fail. For some Xerox printers, using an account code to print from macOS specific applications such as Preview and Safari, along with others, the print job will fail. This is due to a Xerox driver limitation in the macOS. Please use Microsoft Office products and Adobe products to print from when using an account code to print. ***
