Current Universal Print do not support below and it would be great to have it.

1) User Code Setting - Important for printing confidential document where printer won't begin printing until user enter passcode physically on printer

2) Tray Selection - Important for organisation that use multiple paper size/type on different tray


Thanks in advance,

Better yet! The ability to add certain vendor printer-driver specific commands like:




Tray selection

Would love to see functionality for setting User ID and/or password in order to support saving print jobs on the copier(s).

Any plan to allow users of web-based MS Office products to select an available cloud-based printer and print?  Also, it would be ideal if users of MS Office 365 desktop apps (PC/Mac/Android/iDevice) would be able to see and print to Azure AD cloud-based printers.  Both of these would be super helpful in a higher education environment where MANY more faculty and students need the ability to print from personal devices than university-owned equipment.


Thanks and have a great day!

There are multiple requests in this thread and we are unable to update its status because these different requests have different statuses.

@Rani_Abdellatif perhaps the status should focus on original request on top of the thread, there is no way to block others from posting irrelevant comments/request.


@Bryan_Lim, thanks for responding.

The original post has 2 items:

1) User Code Setting

2) Tray Selection


I would really appreciate it if you split Tray Selection to a separate post.




Status changed to: In progress

Setting status to reflect User Code (PIN) feature request.

Copper Contributor

Support for User Code (PIN) would be much appreciated.

Iron Contributor

Any update on the PIN to print? An ETA of when we can expect a private or public preview?

Copper Contributor

I would like to receive an update on adding the feature that printer trays can be selected in Universal Print. Will this feature be added soon? Thank you.

Status changed to: Completed

Windows 11 supports PIN release and tray selection. If you're having trouble using these new features, please let us know.

We cannot use PIN release on Canon Printers.  This is an Extremely important feature for us to be able to use Universal Print for our K12 organization where a lot of confidential information can be printed.  It is a shame that how well the Universal Print driver works is dependent on how well the manufacturer supports it.
