UK Gov reporting Prints by Page Size

Occasional Visitor



As a UK Government organisation we have to report total printed pages by paper size.


Is there anyway to achieve this with universal print?

@richh1071 - Universal Print doesnt have this feature in reporting yet. We would love for you to add this idea to Since you mention UK Gov, I am assuming you have account manager from Microsoft. We recommend working through them as well.


There is a workaround through which you may be able to do this. Universal Print stores a job for 10 days after user submits the job. You can use PowerShell and Graph APIs to retrieve information about a job. Using these tools, you can create a script/small app which periodically looks at jobs under each printer, downloads the required data and stores it in your own storage.


Here is the Graph API - Get printJob - Microsoft Graph v1.0 | Microsoft Learn
