Prioritizing print jobs

By dan.litteer ·
Is is possible to prioritize print jobs? I'm using Netware 5 and queue based printers. I'd like to allow a certain user first priority when he submits a job regardless of how many jobs are currently in the queue.

Thanks for the help

Yes you can by assigning a priority to the queue. A priority of 1 is the highest; 10 is the lowest.

Create two different queues and assign them to the same printer, example. create one queue called normal with a priority of 10 which is the lowestand assign them to normal users. Create another called Top with a priority of 1.

Now when both the queues have a job to print, the queue TOP will get serviced first as it has higher priority.

Cheers :))
